Aston Martin at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show is tapping into its heritage of rich names to illuminate the route that it will take in the future with its line-up. It has showcased three concepts at the show and each of these represent a direction for the iconic British automaker in the future.
Lagonda All-Terrain Concept
The SUV bug has caught up with Aston Martin and it is expected to officially join the (high riding) race with the production version of this vehicle (codenamed DBX) the Lagonda All-terrain. It’s an EV and in our minds the design embodies the fantasy of what an Aston Martin shooting brake would look like. There are large overhangs at the front and rear, massive multi-spoke wheels and a futuristic interpretation of the signature Aston grille.
You can drive it or even be driven around as the EV concept offers a full autonomous driving system complete with swivelling chairs for the front passengers to turn around and have a conversation with the people at the back.
AM-RB 003 mid-engine supercar
Aston Martin’s collaboration with Red Bull F1 has come to fruition in the form of the AM-RB 003. It’s a mid-engine supercar and has been dubbed by the global motoring press as a baby Valkyrie. Filled to the air vents with F1 aero dynamics and chassis technology, it is powered by a turbocharged V6 engine. But it is also a hybrid thanks to electric motors that, like the Aston Martin Red Bull F1 car, add to the overall power and torque.
Sources suggest that there will only be 500 of these made and if we know anything about exclusive machines like this, it is that most of those units have already been sold to existing Aston Martin owners and buyers.
It’s the first preview of Aston Martin’s series production mid-engined supercar. This vehicle too has been developed in collaboration with the Red Bull F1 team. The concept car that has been showcased features a design similar to that of the AM-RB 003 but is bigger across all measurements considering the positioning of the car.
Since we’ve already said Red Bull and F1, we are now throwing in Aston Martin Performance Centre in Milton Keynes (where Red Bull has its HQ) as well as the turbocharged V6. These few words alone should raise the excitement levels with regard to the Vanquish Vision.
