Aston Martin goes mid-engined with Vanquish Vision concept!

Now, Aston Martin has a new Lagonda debuting at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, in concept form anyway.

"Firstly, what a pleasure to revive the Vanquish name". The Lagonda SUV will be produced in Aston Martin's new St Athan plant, Wales, from some time in 2022 onwards. "The Vanquish Vision Concept marks another pivotal moment in Aston Martin's history, and another critical step in delivering the Second Century Plan". Created to compete with the likes of the Ferrari F8 and McLaren 720S, the British hypercar would be Aston Martin's first series production mid-engined supercar.

However, since it's the follow-up to the Aston Martin Valkyrie, which boasts 1,100 horsepower, it's a safe assumption to expect the AM-RB 003 to be faster. The front fenders have openings that allow a view right through to the tyre. The hierarchy places the Valkyrie at the top of the heap as a very limited-run hypercar, the AM-RB 003 as a LaFerrari and McLaren Senna rival, and the Vanquish Vision Concept as a rival for outer echelon mid-engine supercars. "It's a prettier vehicle, and purposely so, as it's been created to thrive in a less extreme performance envelope", Nurnberger continued. As a result, it's less provocative and more classical in its look.

This new Lagonda should further hone-in on Aston Martin's future design language that will carry the company into the future.

He has pleaded not guilty to multiple counts of kidnapping, rape and other charges related to those accusations. Winslow, a 2007 Pro Bowler with Cleveland, last played in the National Football League in 2013 with the Jets.

Detailed technical information has yet to be revealed.

Unlike its mid-engined siblings, the Vanquish Vision Concept makes use of a bespoke bonded aluminium chassis, developed under the guidance of mid-engined specialist and Aston Martin Chief Technical Officer, Max Szwaj.

When describing the interior, Aston Martin EVP and CCO, Marek Reichman said, "We imagined that the owner would be a sort of pioneering yet environmentally conscious person".
