Next-gen Aston Martin Vanquish sports new, aggressive look
With the DB11 already introduced in the market, expect Aston Martin to release new models soon. The next model to possibly released would be the Vanquish as our spies have already seen the next-generation Aston Martin Vanquish roaming the streets of the Nurburgring, likely undergoing road tests.
Unlike the previous DB9 and the current generation Vanquish, there appears to be more cosmetic changes to the next-generation Vanquish compared to the DB11 likely to distinguish the two vehicles apart. Noticeably, there Vanquish sports a more aggressive front fascia with larger air intakes and a larger front grill. There are also larger vents in the hood to extract heat from its likely more powerful V12 engine.
The design of the front bumper is unlikely to be final as the end plates appear to have been only tacked on upon a closer look of the photo. Furthermore, the headlights have also been redesigned and could be also replaced with a different unit during production.
Moving along the side of the car, a metal sheet has also been tacked on to the fender and larger side skirt, possibly hinting at an extractor vent for the wheels. At the rear, there is a new quad-exhaust setup and a diffuser to match the more aggressive styling of the Vanquish. The taillights have also been redesigned, and will now likely run the width of the rear.
Power wise, it is likely the Vanquish will still use a naturally aspirated V12. Given that the DB11's V12 engine already produces 608 PS, the question now is how much power the Vanquish will produce. As of the upcoming Vanquish has yet to surface, our spies mention that it could ouput somewhere between 650 to 700 PS.
It is possible that the next-generation Vanquish could be revealed in late-2018 or early 2019 as the prototype seen above is likely still in the development phase.
