600 HP Aston Martin Vantage RS is Headed for Production

Aston Martin unveiled the Vantage RS Concept at the end of last year. At the time the automaker said the car was only a concept, but we know how that goes.

According to a recent interiew with Aston Martin CEO Dr. Ulrich Bez, the car is going to enter production sometime next year after a convertible version of the DBS. The Vantage RS Concept is powered by the same 6.0L V12 engine as the DBS, but with some enhancements to squeeze out a bit more power. According to Aston martin the car reaches 0-62mph in 4.0 seconds and 100mph in 8.5 seconds.

The DBS is going to start at $265,000 in the US and the Vantage RS will start even higher when it is released.
