Let’s be frank, the next Aston Martin Vanquish has been spotted a couple of times over the past few months. However, what’s unique about this sighting is that the prototype seems to have slapped on some Pirelli snow tires before heading out to test in the snow. What's more, these aren’t particularly the ideal conditions that prospective owners like to drive their as Astons on.
Going forward, every time the Vanquish test mule has been spotted, it has been wearing the same black bits that mask the true design cues, and it continues to show off the matte-black paint job. While it is obvious that the new Vanquish will continue to turn heads, we noticed that the front bumper and fascia has a more attractive design with sharper lines. Plus, despite the efforts to conceal the rear portion, one can easily decipher how the slim tail lights will turn out to be.
As can be seen, the hood vents are considerably larger. And this invariably means that a drivetrain with significantly more power may be nestling in there. Although a V12 is probably on the cards, the new Vanquish could ideally end up with about 700bhp on tap. More so since the DB11 already makes in excess of 600bhp. Expect to see the new Vanquish in flesh at Geneva in March this year, before it heads out to showrooms in early 2019. Stay tuned for the details.
