In an unprecedented show of force, Aston Martin has chosen the 89th Geneva Motor Show to complete a trio of world debuts with the first glimpse of the breathtaking Vanquish Vision Concept.

A tantalising preview of Aston Martin’s first series production mid-engined supercar, the Vanquish Vision Concept showcases the design language of the marque’s most ambitious model, taking centre stage alongside AM-RB 003 – the marque’s third mid-engined hypercar – and the Lagonda All-Terrain Concept.

Reviving an iconic nameplate traditionally reserved for Aston Martin’s flagship production model, the advanced design study provides further evidence of the proudly British brand’s intent to compete in one of the most hotly contested market sectors in the automotive world – one traditionally defined by Italian supercar makers – with this Gaydon built offering.

Like AM-RB 003, the Vanquish Vision Concept benefits from further crystallisation of the philosophy pioneered in the Aston Martin Valkyrie and distilled into AM-RB 003, with the pursuit of weight, packaging and aerodynamic efficiency informing every aspect of the design and engineering.

Detailed technical information will be revealed as the development programme advances, but two items of high level information can be disclosed; the first being confirmation the production version of Vanquish Vision Concept will feature a version of Aston Martin’s new V6: the engine that will make its debut in AM-RB 003 in hybrid turbo form.

Secondly, in a departure from the Aston Martin Valkyrie and AM-RB 003’s all-carbon fibre construction, the Vanquish Vision Concept features a bespoke bonded aluminium chassis, developed under the guidance of mid-engined specialist and Aston Martin Chief Technical Officer, Max Szwaj. As established automotive world leaders in bonded aluminium structures, Aston Martin is perfectly placed to demonstrate the cost, speed of production and weight vs strength advantages of this technology.

As with all Aston Martin products, the Vanquish Vision Concept will undergo a rigorous development process as it nears its final production specification, utilising the experience of handling gurus Matt Becker and Chris Goodwin.
