New Aston Martin V8 Vantage — Maybe?

Our West Coast team snapped themselves some of the first shots of James Bond's Aston Martin this weekend, but in all the hoopla, we almost forgot it's not the only sled in the newly ProDrive-purchased brand. There's also the question of what's going on with the littlest Aston — the V8 Vantage? Jalopnik bilingual reader and occasional tipster Ard-Jan dropped us an e-mail this morning with a link to something he's found over at AUTOGESPOT — pictures of what they think could be the next V8 Vantage not sporting any camouflage. Although it looks very similar to the Mansory Vantage tuner, the rear taillights, grille, and sides look different enough that maybe it could be the next baby Aston. And hey, considering the 2005 Frankfurt show was where they released the last one — wouldn't this year's Frankfurt Auto Show be a great place to drop the new V8 Vantage? Just sayin'...
