Aston Martin will launch six new models over the next six years, including replacements to the DB9, Vantage and Rapide, as well as new models including the Lagonda and Cygnet.
Below, we reveal these models and their likely launch dates.
Cygnet - 2011
Aston’s retrim of the Toyota iQ city car is set to take up to half the firm’s sales in Europe from next year.
The Cygnet might be questionable to purists, but it’s going to be pretty visible in Europe’s cities; dealers have been collecting letters of intent from buyers, even though a final price for the car has yet to be announced.
With tailpipe CO2 emissions of around 115g/km, the Cygnet will have a vital role in helping Aston to cut its fleet average CO2 by the near-20 per cent demanded by the EU by 2015.
DB9/DBS - 2013/2015
Thorough re-engineering of today’s DB9 will include a reskin, fresh interior and revised V12 engine. Aston is pouring much of the budget into revisions to the VH bonded alloy underpinnings to cut weight and improve structural stiffness.
Cleaning up the tailpipe emissions of the Cosworth-engineered engine is a key target for project VH500.
