Vanquish Vision Concept is a preview of Aston Martin’s first series production mid-engine supercar. The decision takes Aston Martin into a mid-engine sector previously defined by other key competitors.  Aston Martin has been cranking out the concept cars, er, renderings lately.

Aston Martin Lagonda aims to be the world’s first zero-emission luxury brand. The company will leverage electrification and autonomous driving technologies. The Lagonda All-Terrain Concept is set for production in 2022 and includes a floating key. It’s called the Lagonda All-Terrain Concept, and its name is the most uncreative thing about it.

Would You Drive This Vintage Aston Martin EV?

Take your favorite classic car and fit it with a modern EV powertrain. That’s exactly what Aston Martin has done with a 1970 DB6 MkII Volante.
