What we’re looking at is the hot Aston Martin Vanquish being subjected to the extreme winter temperatures of Finland (-25 degree Celsius).
Since this partially concealed Vanquish was parked, our spy photographers had quite a party, shooting it in detail. The manner in which some black tape was used to mask portions of the hood and grille show that the final design is still some time away. Likewise, there are some upright panels fixed next to the front bumper air dams. It seems Aston has gone the extra mile to not reveal the tail lamps, which in this case, are covered with panels and successfully disclose the true shape.
With Aston Martin’s boss, Andy Palmer, spilling the beans on how its upcoming Vanquish is expected to take on the 789bhp Ferrari 812 Superfast, we can expect nothing less than spectacular in the powertrain department. Aston will have to use none other than its DB11’s twin-turbo 5.2-litre V12 motor with an amplified power output of at least 700bhp to begin with.
We felt that the new Vanquish looks extravagant while retaining the traditional Aston lineage. It is expected to be revealed in 2018 before hitting the roads in early 2019. Stay tuned to CarWale for more updates in the months to come.
