For a company with just one platform, Aston Martin sure manages to stay in the news a lot. In June Aston released the new Vanquish, followed just a couple of weeks later by spy shots
of a revised Rapide prototype at the Nurburgring. Now it appears that those two vehicles may grow a lot closer than expected. At the time, the intelligence was that the Rapide would get the 520-horsepower version of the 6.0-liter V12 found in the DBS. But the DBS is being discontinued, replaced by the new Vanquish.
