Aston Martin is currently reforming its entire line-up. It started with the introduction of the DB11 back in 2016. And by the year 2022, the Gaydon-based carmaker’s portfolio will include an SUV, two mid-engine hypercars and a couple of Lagonda products.
The DB11, which was introduced with the V12, was later joined by a V8 model. The smaller 4.0-litre V8 was sourced from AMG GT as a result of Aston’s collaboration with Mercedes-AMG. The DB11 now also has a Volante (soft-top convertible) in its line-up. Earlier this month, the DB11 AMR was revealed as a replacement for the standard DB11 V12.
The Vantage, which has always been the highest selling Aston Martin, entered into a new generation this year. Built from the ground-up, the new Vantage is more powerful, lighter, faster and also more expensive than the outgoing model. It also lays down the new design language for upcoming Aston Martin’s.
The Vanquish replacement will revive the DBS Superleggera moniker and it will be the new flagship V12 super-GT for Aston Martin. Expected to be revealed in the months to come, the DBS Superleggera will also be joined by a Volante body style.
Next year, Aston Martin will officially start selling the outrageous Valkyrie hypercar. The Valkyrie (codename AM-RB 001 and Nebula) is a hybrid electric sports car collaboratively built with Red Bull Racing. It will rival the Mercedes-AMG Project One, Ferrari LaFerrari, Porsche 918, and McLaren Senna.
The Rapide sedan will get an AMR treatment, the test mule of which has been spotted already. The Rapide will also be the first all-electric vehicle from Aston Martin when it enters production in 2019 with the name – RapidE.
Also next year, the British carmaker will join the SUV bandwagon and roll out the DBX from their new St Athan plant in Wales. The new St Athan production plant will also have a facility for electrification line-up, so we could expect the DBX to offer some sort of electric powertrain as well.
The Vanquish moniker will make its comeback in a mid-engine hypercar that will rival the likes of Ferrari 488 and McLaren 720S. No other details of the Aston’s mid-engine car are available at the moment.
Two new models under the sub-brand Lagonda will also roll out from St Athan by the year 2020 and 2021. The first will be a Lagonda saloon which will rival the Rolls-Royce Phantom. It will be based on the Vision Concept showcased at the 2018 Geneva stage. The other product will be a Lagonda SUV, which will be an electric luxury SUV to take on the Bentley Bentayga.
