The new 2013 Aston Martin Vanquish – Project Am 310 from Villa D’Este – has been caught on video in Italy in production guise.
The story of the replacement for the Aston Martin DBS – which we now know is to be the new Aston Martin Vanquish – has been playing out over the last month or so.
We reported at the start of May that the DBS name would be dropped and then exclusively revealed that it would debut at Villa D’Este as the Project Am 310 to try and mop up the honours in the Concept Category (it actually lost out to the Alfa 4C).
We then had a video of the new ‘DBS’ at the start of June with the ‘Vanquish’ badge clearly on display as it was loaded on a trailer. So now all we need is video of the production version of the new Vanquish to complete the circle, and the guys at Autoblog in Italy have managed to do exactly that as Aston Martin were apparently shooting a promo video.
As expected, there is little to differentiate the ‘Concept’ Vanquish at Villa D’Este from the production car. As far as we can see all that’s changed are a slight less OTT set of alloys and a bit less brightwork on the grill and side vents.
Our original information was that the launch cars would get the big carbon fibre splitter at the front which would be an option for standard cars. This Vanquish looks to have the same splitter so we’re guessing this is a launch car.
And as for the launch of the new Aston Martin Vanquish, expect that to happen after a debut of the production Vanquish at the Paris Motor Show in September.
