Earlier this week, Aston Martin took to the stage to unveil not one but three all-new cars that we can expect to see in the range over the coming years. Covering all aspects from luxurious SUV to mid-engined supercar to baby hypercar, the releases certainly show a shift in Aston Martin’s design language and company focus. Get all the info on their three stunning reveals below!
Aston Martin RB 003
We’re going to start with possibly the most insane of the three new cars, the Aston Martin RB 003. Known also as ‘the Baby Valkyrie’ this incredible looking car is the third mid-engined hypercar to emerge after Aston Martin teamed up with Red Bull Advanced Technologies – following the Valkyrie and Valkyrie AMR Pro.
Enjoying similar aerodynamically focused design as the Aston Martin Valkyrie, the RB 003 is powered by a turbocharged V6 engine with additional power coming from hybrid technology.
Sadly, there aren’t currently any performance figures, but you can expect that the RB 003 will be no slouch, especially when you consider that Red Bull’s F1 car is powered by the same type of power plant (no link has been mentioned by Aston Martin).
Whilst the RB 003 shares many similarities with the incredible Aston Martin Valkyrie, it finds its differences in the fact that it’s more road focused. That means the cabin is more spacious, there’s a wider centre console, LMP1-style doors that make access easier and even some additional space for a small amount of luggage.
Only 500 RB 003’s will be made when production begins but Aston Martin say that shockwaves from the design will be felt when the first production mid-engined supercar appears. Speaking of their new mid-engined supercar …
Aston Martin Vanquish Vision Concept
See what Aston Martin mean when they say that the design will be passed on to their mid-engined supercar? What you’re looking at here is the future of the Aston Martin Vanquish.
Of course, the word ‘concept’ is in the title, so this isn’t exactly what the new Aston Martin Vanquish will look like, however Aston Martin have said that it’s not far from how the finished product will look when it appears in 2021.
Along with moving the engine to the middle of the car, Aston Martin have opted to say goodbye to the flagship’s legendary V12. Instead, they’ll be equipping the new Aston Martin Vanquish with a new V6 – a version of the same V6 that we’ll see in the aforementioned RB 003.
As you’d expect, we’ve no performance data to speak of but, when you consider the competition in the sector, expect around 700hp. Whilst we’re excited to see the likes of the ultra-exclusive Valkyrie and RB 003 taking their first steps, we can’t help but a little more excited about this new Aston Martin Vanquish. We look forward to more of this soon and, in a few years, welcoming it into Aston Martin Nottingham.
Lagonda All-Terrain Concept
As you may already know, Aston Martin recently revived the illustrious Lagonda name as a luxury car brand that exclusively features zero emission vehicles. Following that revival, the brand have used this year’s Geneva Motor Show to unveil the new Lagonda All-Terrain Concept, a striking SUV that takes design cues from last year’s Lagonda Vision Concept, Mars exploration and super yachts.
SUV production is planned for 2022 and it may actually look more like this All-Terrain Concept than you’d expect; with Aston Martin Lagonda stating that they aim to create cars that are equally futuristic and luxurious.
The Lagonda All-Terrain Concept also follows the same design language as last year’s none SUV concept, giving a pretty decent tell of what we can expect from the brand.
True to the ethos of the brand, there’s not a combustion engine in sight, with the Lagonda All-Terrain Concept gaining its power from the latest in all-electric technology. Aston Martin Lagonda say that the All-Terrain will allow occupants to tackle any environment in complete luxury; presumably hinting that power will go to all-four wheels.
As you’d expect, the interior is home to a sea of luxurious materials and technology elements that make the cabin an extraordinary place to be. It’s here that you can expect to see the super yacht inspiration come fully into its stride.
