Aston Martin Vanquish returns as the DBS successor

Article by Christian A., on June 4, 2012

As you may know already, Aston Martin showed at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este the Project AM 310, a concept car that previewed the next-generation DBS. Today, Car magazine managed to spy the next supercar and revealed the fact that the new vehicle will revive the Vanquish name.

For those who don’t know, the Aston Martin Vanquish was a major success for the British manufacturer and was sold from 2001 ‘till 2007.

The Vanquish was built under the leadership of Ulrich Bez, who was appointed as Aston Martin CEO back in 2000.

Moreover, the Vanquish pioneered the design style and technical hardware seen on the entire current Aston Martin range. Now, the Aston Martin Vanquish is back and promises to set a new standard on the market.

As you can see from the video and from the photos with the AM 310 project, the new Vanquish will get a rear spoiler integrated into the trunk as well as a new design. Moreover, under the hood we will find an impressive V12 engine. More details to be revealed as the car will be unveiled in summer 2012.

Aston Martin has revealed the Vanquish, a new and striking luxury sports car.

Positioned proudly at the top of the British luxury car manufacturer’s sports car range, this new astonishing super grand tourer signifies the pinnacle of contemporary Aston Martin style and engineering. The Vanquish indicates an exhilarating and poised outlook for the classic name.

The AM 310 Vanquish is a new Aston Martin that features the next iteration of the celebrated VH construction as well as a considerably advanced 6.0-litre V12 engine that is more powerful than ever.

The styling embodies the newest vantage of Aston Martin's signature visual expression. The Vanquish undeniably will lead the brand to continuing its desirable heritage of creating examples of the world’s most stunning sports cars. Styling touches such as the new sophisticated waist, lengthened side strakes, and rear LED light blades were inspired by the One-77 supercar.

Definitely an Aston Martin, the styling expresses a pure and articulate line from its heritage while creating an equally strong indicator to the luxury brand's exciting future. Closer scrutiny brings to light such details as the boot lid’s striking new Aero Duct. This elegantly designed static engineering component, which counters the car's rear lift when it is running along at high speed, is a major accomplishment of both design and technique.

Execution, authority, styling, and superior British artistry - the Vanquish displays all these qualities in abundance.
