The supercar from England in the subsequent generation will be the first mid-engine car with a manual transmission.

The next generation sports coupe that has “broken” modern trends will be based on a platform based on most elements made of aluminum. The supercar will be equipped with a six-cylinder biturbo powerplant developing over 700 hp it is assumed that the new product will successfully compete with the models McLaren 720C, Ferrari F8, Lamborghini Huracan.

The exterior of the new Aston Martin Vanquish, judging by the concept, will be in keeping with traditions and less aggressive than the future Valkyrie hypercar. However, according to Andy Palmer, who heads the Aston, the coupe will have a rare feature for today: the manual gearbox.

The chief of the company claims that he “made a commitment” to become the last carmaker in the world that makes sports cars with manual transmission. The upcoming generation Vanquish will be equipped with a 7-speed manual that was “taught” to re-gas when moving to a lower gear. It is assumed that the first new generation sports coupe will come off the assembly line in 2022.
