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.
But now, the British marque has made it official, revealing that an all-new version of its top-line Vanquish model is heading to market, this one official dubbed the Aston Martin 310 Vanquish. And if the new super-coupe looks familiar it shouldn’t be much of a surprise, either. AM officials unabashedly admit they’ve lifted some of the new car’s most striking design cues from the Aston One-77 supercar.
Referring to it as the brand’s “new hero,” Aston Martin’s never-subtle CEO Ulrich Bez suggests the “AM 310 Vanquish is the ultimate expression of Aston Martin design ethos, engineering innovation and technical ability. It offers luxurious, continent-crossing capability and pure driving excitement without compromise.”
