Aston Martin Vanquish Vision concept at Geneva Motor Show

Aston Martin came up with a surprise at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, and presented three mid-engine supercars together its ultimate track-focused Valkyrie.

Competing marques such as McLaren and Ferrari expected the British automaker to present a new mid-engine supercar at the motor show.

But showgoers were impressed by a trio of debut vehicle that fired a warning shot at the world’s leading supercar brands.

Aston Martin unveiled the Vanquish Vision Concept to compete on the likes of Lamborghini’s Huracan Evo and the new Ferrari F8 Tributo. Powered by a mid-mounted V6 turbo engine of Aston’s own design, the slinky-looking Vanquish completed in green paint is constructed on a bonded aluminium frame, as utilized by Italian competitors.

The model is expected to share showroom space along with the V12-powered Valkyrie hypercar when it goes on sale in 2022.

Those vehicles will be split by a new model mixing the Valkyrie’s carbon chassis and aero know-how with a less costly V6 engine similar to what’s in the back of the Vanquish.

Touted as a £1 million ($1.30 million including taxes) proposition to compete with McLaren’s Senna, the mid-range Aston Martin AM-RB 003 represents the third model constructed as part of an alliance between the automaker and Formula 1’s Red Bull Racing.

The silver-coloured concept is expected to add hybrid know-how to a program that could beat challenge Ferrari’s claim as the marque with the closest link of road and track.

The automaker also presented the first road-going prototype for its $3.2 million Valkyrie, an extreme machine inspired by a screaming 865kW V12 that can reach beyond 11,000rpm. The vehicle will be joined by a track-only Valkyrie AMR-Pro version cut from the same efforts as the LaFerrari FXXK and McLaren P1 GTR which represent the ultimate circuit-honed vehicles sold by their brands.

The new mid-engine models join standard front-engine vehicles consisting of the V8 Vantage, DB11 and DBS Superleggera in a rising range soon to include a high-riding DBX SUV to compete Lamborghini’s Urus.
