Rumors abound the DBS/DB9 successor will be officially unveiled later this week.
Aston Martin is set to officially unveil the new Vanquish any day now, and with these latest spy shots of the supercar in a luxury shade of metallic champagne gold lapping the 'Ring, we can see that it is ready to explode onto the marketplace with a serious pop. The DB9/DBS successor sports a sculpted front end reminiscent of the One-77 and redesigned headlights, while the rest of the body is simply an evolution of the current DBS.
The rear features some muscular arches along with a sharp looking spoiler. The Aston's 6.0-liter V12 engine will remain, with power boosted to around 550-600hp. Lightweight materials and a lighter chassis should improve performance numbers to 0-62mph in less than four seconds and a top speed of roughly 200mph. With any luck Aston Martin will release official specs and photos later this week. As soon as they do, we'll be the first to reveal them.
