Aston Martin Vanquish Volante and AMR Pro Announced

Aston Martin is taking direct aim at Ferrari with the new Vanquish planned for 2022.


Based on the concept unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show a few weeks ago, the all-new Aston Martin Vanquish will be offered as a convertible with the Volante model, and as a hardcore track-focused version with a variant called AMR Pro.

The Ferrari F8 Tributo and Lamborghini Huracan EVO will be direct competitors of the new Aston Martin Vanquish. The AMR Pro will seek to give performance versions like the Huracan Performante and McLaren 600LT a run for their money.

Of course, the Aston Martin Vanquish Volante and AMR Pro aren’t planned for another three years and their competitors may be significantly different in 2022.

Still, the new mid-engined Aston Martin Vanquish will certainly put the Italian automakers on notice. The production version is planned with an aluminium V6 hybrid engine inspired by Formula 1.

Aston Martin says the production version of the Vanquish will ressemble the concept shown in Geneva. Aston Martin boss Andy Palmer told Top Gear the brand wants a more seductive look to its mid-engined supercar as opposed to the more agressive look of cars like the Huracan EVO and Ferrari F8 Tributo.

The Vanquish concept’s design language will also influence the next Aston Martin front-engine GT car called the DB-12 which is expected around 2025.


A Range of New Aston Martin Models

Aston Martin is preparing a full lineup of new models in the next few years.

The Vanquish is one of them, and it will be then followed by a new hypercar rumored to be called the Valhalla which will be based on the 003 shown in Geneva. These models will join the Aston Martin DBX sport utility vehicle and the new Lagonda SUV.

The goal, according to Andy Palmer, is to reach 14,000 units produced per year. A lofty goal, but nothing a new mid-engined car and luxury SUV can’t fix.
