Aston Martin is going to give us a faster version of the current Vanquish model as a final send-off for the series.
Our spies caught a thinly disguised test mule driving around Nurburgring, featuring a more aggressive body kit than the current Vanquish.
Aston Martin did the same with the original Vanquish model when they gave it a slight power bump and a fresh aero package, resulting in the Vanquish S. The same recipe is expected to be repeated with the current model, giving fans of the brand one last chance to get a naturally aspirated Aston V12 before its 2018 DB11-based successor goes turbocharged.
The updated Vanquish is probably going to pick the same naming strategy and stick an ‘S’ next to the name. You can get a good idea of what the car will look like from our photos, as they show a more prominent front spoiler, bigger side skirts and a meaner rear diffuser that houses a new quad-pipe exhaust system.
Since the current Vanquish makes 565hp from its 6.0-litre V12 engine and Aston has already blessed the limited Zagato version with a 600hp version of the same unit, it’s safe to assume that the company is going to use the stronger version under that beautiful bonnet.
After all, Aston’s naturally aspirated V12 masterpiece must go out with a bang.
