Report – Aston Martin to present Vantage and Vanquish successors by 2018 image

The next couple of years will be brimming with novelties coming from Aston Martin – well, in the sense of referring to the size of the exotic automaker three important reveals are counted as a lot.

That’s because the all new Aston Martin DB11 will be introduced in a matter of weeks – you know the successor to the DB9 has skipped a digit because of a guy named James Bond that likes to toy around in the English manufacturer’s vehicles – though all these possessions are destined to live a short life (the latest and greatest – the DB10 – was ditched in a Rome canal). Well movie franchises aside, there’s also a new report that paints a rosy picture to Aston’s future. That’s because the latest rumor flying around the mill is indicating the DB11 flagship will soon be joined by the successors of the Vantage and Vanquish lines. And the introductions will happen actually quite fast – being tipped to conclude by 2018.

Little else is known about the models aside from their prospective introduction before 2018 and the fact that Aston Martin chief executive officer Andy Palmer has suggested the models will not be so heavily influenced by each other: “One could argue there is not enough separation between DB9 and Vantage. One could easily cross-shop between the two.” Aston Martin will take the wraps off the DB11 next month and the model is expected to come with an evolved design language sporting a massive grille and sleek LED headlights. Customers can also expected a Mercedes-AMG engine and a wide array of other components sourced through the partnership with the German automaker.
