The pre-production model is menacing in matte black.
New models from Aston Martin are coming, and today we get a great look at the next Vanquish as it prowls the streets around the Nürburgring.
Specific power figures aren’t yet known, but the Vanquish is expected to make somewhere between 650 and 700 horsepower.
These photos also help us see the changes on the Vanquish versus the DB11. The front bumper has a significantly more aggressive look, featuring larger air intakes with a bigger grille opening. The bonnet vents are also larger – all of which suggests the Vanquish will have a serious appetite for air and fuel, and a serious need to get rid of excess heat.
On the purely visual side, we see a different design for the headlights as well as the taillights. The rear also sports a fairly aggressive quad-exhaust setup with a new diffuser and big side sills.
The current Vanquish has been on sale since 2012, and while the new model’s shape isn’t a huge departure for Aston Martin, more than a few people are lamenting the demise of the car’s naturally aspirated V12. Expect a full reveal sometime next year, with sales beginning in 2019.
