The company is currently making a more performance-focused version of the Vanquish. The car was spotted disguised under the body of a DB11 test mule, being tested at the Nürburgring.
The car will go on sale in 2018, after the V8 Vantage’s launch, and it uses a 5.2-litre V12 turbo-petrol motor, shared with the DB11. The car will make power north of 608hp, bringing it closer to the 800hp Ferrari 812 Superfast, which is powered by a 6.5-litre V12 Engine.
The new Vanquish will probably sit above the DB11 in Aston’s range. The upcoming supercar will be underpinned by a modified version of the DB11’s platform. The British manufacturer’s decision to make the Vanquish a supercar is part of a larger plan which includes launching the DBX SUV in 2019, a mid-engined rival to the Ferrari 488 GTB and McLaren 720S in 2021, and a Lagonda sedan and a Lagonda SUV in 2020 and 2022.
