Aston Martin developing an all-new sportscar platform

Aston Martin developing an all-new sportscar platform

Aston Martin has confirmed that they are currently developing a new sportscar platform that will replace the ageing VH platform. This announcement has come soon after revealing their  2013 financial results.

In a statement made during the firm's 2013 annual report, Hanno Kirner, Aston Martin Chief Financial Officer, announced that the automaker will soon undertake the largest investment program in its 101-year history. The company’s current sportscar platform is around a decade old and desperately needs a new one. The luxury car brand is partnering with Daimler on electrical components and will source the new V8 engines from the German company's AMG division. This new platform is expected to underpin all of Aston's future sportscars, while the AMG V8 engines will be used in the next-generation Vantage only.

"We are engineering a completely new architecture and technology to ensure that our next generation of sportscars is at the forefront of design, performance and technology," Kirner added.

The company claims that the 13 per cent revenue increase and a stronger capital structure is allowing them to move forward in developing this new platform. Cars like the Vanquish Coupe, Volante and the V12 Vantage S have helped them tremendously increase their overall revenue. The rumoured car, to debut with this new platform is the next DB9 grand tourer. A launch is expected to happen in 2016.
