The cabriolet version of the new 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante, has been spotted testing once again, this time lapping the Nürburgring test track in Germany and sporting some Austin Powers inspired Camouflage.
Earlier this year Aston Martin revealed its all new Vanquish model the direct replacement for the outgoing DBS. Even though it is not due for release for another 6-7 months the British automaker has started testing the Volante.
Its good to see a car go full circle and be a success for a British Automotive Company from the early prototype spyshots taken at the Nurburgring and now Aston Martin stating all 77 units of the hypercar has now been sold.
Is it time for a new edition Aston perhaps unadventurously called the Two-77????
Here are the latest spy shots of the AM 310 Concept which will wear the moniker of the Vanquish.
Powering the Carbon bodied car will be a 6.0-liter V12 engine, that sends 565 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels through a six-speed servo operated gearbox with paddle shifters.
Aston Martin is undertaking extensive testing at the Nürburgring Aston Martin Test Center, We are quite shocked at the lack of camouflage.
The lights are based on the one-77 with its incremental light display.
We are expecting the official unveiling at the 2012 Paris Autoshow.
The UK-based coachbuilder Coventry Prototype Panels CPP have acquired the Italian design house Zagato, their acquisitions list for the Birmingham based firm is impressive and their portfolio contains the likes of Spyker,Bowler and a close relationship with Aston Martin. (Which would explain the Aston Zagato entry in the N24).
Also Aston Martin have released pricing of the Zagato which is based on the v12 Vantage and a limited number of only 150 pieces and with a quite reasonable price of 330k Gbp will leave the one-77 owners writing another check to Aston Martin
The question is what is CPP up to and when are we going to see some new marques coming out to stalk the Black Country in middle England.
