The all new Aston Martin DB11 is reportedly just the tip of the British automaker’s product offensive, which is set to continue with the new Vantage and Vanquish, and with two other models later on.
The new generation Vantage and Vanquish models will of course use the same aluminum architecture that underpins the DB11 – apparently the latter has already received more than 1400 orders. The V12-powered 2+2 GT costs a cool 154,900 British pounds but during the VIP customer preview events already 500 units have been spoke for – while 400 come from the Geneva show floor itself. After the DB11 is properly introduced in showrooms, the new Vantage sports car will come late 2017 – treated to the Mercedes AMG V8 engines that should make the bulk of the powertrain lineup in the near future for Aston. An all new Vanquish will come later on after the Vantage, but the company is unsure yet if the model will be a performance GT or a full-blown supercar. Both models would be produced on developments of the company’s new aluminum architecture.
On the other hand, Aston Martin chief Andy Palmer confirmed the Wales-built DBX will be using a separate Aston-developed aluminum architecture and not one shared from another carmaker. The first Aston crossover will be introduced around the end of the decade and by that time the automaker would also out a new luxury Lagonda sedan, thus packing three separate model lines across its range.
