Aston Martin plans new architecture

Aston Martin is a quite familiar name for the car fans worldwide. It is associated with the British character, a place where luxurious car brands are in their element and where there are appropriate conditions to develop business. Aston Martin has become in time a respectable brand with clear orientation towards satisfying even the most difficult customers. And they are planning a massive change in the way their cars look which is about to be noticed starting with the new DB9 programmed for a late 2016 introduction, as a 2017 model year.

Aston Martin announced somewhere in April that they are planning a brand new architecture and this is expected especially because the current VH platform is available since 2000. The first model to experiment the new architecture is the DB9 programmed to be unveiled by the end of 2016 as a 2017MY. It will definitely feature a new look, a look that would redefine the British brand.

Aston Martin will use their new architecture on vehicles such as a new Vantage planned for 2018, followed a year later by the Vanquish. For the time being there aren’t any rumours that the current Rapide will be replaced. This holds true for the Lagonda SUV which hasn't been green-lighted yet. All the new models will be powered by AMG engines, probably the company’s own version of AMG's recently introduced twin-turbo V8 4.0-liter engine while a V12 motor based on AMG's twin-turbo 6.0-liter will be offered as well. There are high chances that all the vehicles will be personalized more thoroughly so as to avoid criticism that is currently surrounding the present lineup.
