Aston Martin announced Vanquish in AMR Pro and Volante versionsMarch 19, 2019
Aston Martin Vanquish mid-engined supercar will be released by the AMR Pro for the racetrack, as well as the Volante, which is a roadster.
Aston Martin presented a conceptual version of Vanquish earlier this month at the Geneva Motor Show, so the company now has three mid-engine vehicles – Valkyrie, Vanquish and AM-RB 003. A serial version of the Vanquish model will be introduced in 2022.
The same goes for the Vanquish Volante, which will compete with roadsters from McLaren and Ferrari, while the AMR Pro will fight for the consumer with the Italian Lamborghini Huracan Evo.
Not that this was a big surprise, but Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer told Top Gear magazine about creating a hardcore, track-oriented version of the AMR Pro version that will be performed in the same vein as Valkyrie AMR Pro.
Aston Martin does not want to go into specific details regarding the technical components of the new products, but Mr. Palmer confirmed that Vanquish will use the V6 engine as part of an electrified installation. In an interview with Top Gear, the director of Aston Martin said that this is a 5.2-liter twin-turbine engine. The same V6 will also be installed in the AM-RB 003 hypercar.
It is reported that the Vanquish model will affect the new version of the Grand Tourrer DB12, which should appear by the middle of the next decade. It is about both the general design of the car, and some of its technical characteristics.
Andy Palmer plans to reach an annual production level of 14,000 units. This number includes sports cars with front and middle engine layout, as well as the DBX crossover and luxury models of the Lagonda brand (owned by Aston Martin).
