British marque reveals its “new hero.”

With the new 310 Vanquish, Aston borrows some styling cues - and the carbon fiber body construction - from its One-77 supercar.

The fact that Aston Martin had something big coming wasn’t exactly the most well-kept secret, especially not as a few blurry shots started appearing from the spy photographers always hiding in the hills surrounding Germany’s vaunted Nurburgring.
