Aston Martin is a long-standing manufacturer of high-end sports cars, with engines at the front. But now, it is betting on a midengine future, which will include the Vanquish. Although this radical shift in philosophy is still years away, we now have some juicy details and plenty of speculation to keep our eyes on it.
Vanquish’s basic layout will be the same as the Valhalla or Valkyrie hypercars but it won’t be limited in production nor cost millions. The company will source a new hybrid V-8 engine from AMG. The 2025 Vanquish engine will now be behind the driver. This should make it more competitive with McLaren 720S and Ferrari F8.
2025 Aston Martin Vanquish Review
Aston Martin plans to introduce three mid-engine models. This includes the next generation Vanquish. We have only seen the Vanquish Vision concept, which debuted at Geneva’s auto show. We also learned a few details about Aston’s use of an AMG-sourced V-8 to power its hybrid powertrain. However, there is still much to learn about the 2025 Vanquish, before it arrives in the next couple of years.
The price of the next-generation Vanquish is expected to be around $300,000. This is a far cry from Aston’s seven-figure hypercars but it’s still not affordable for most enthusiasts. We don’t know if Vanquish’s next model will have a roofless version, but it’s possible to be competitive with retractable-roof rivals like the 720S.
Engine, Transmission, & Performance
Aston Martin will likely bolt a twin-turbo, 4.0-liter V-8 from AMG into the Vanquish. It’ll be paired with two electric motors to create a plug-in hybrid powertrain. This is a departure from the original hybrid 3.0-liter V-6 the company originally intended to build in-house. Although the Vanquish will be equipped with the same engine as the Valhalla’s, it is unlikely that it will produce the same 937 horsepower.
Aston might offer an all-electric Vanquish. We expect it to have a bonded aluminum spaceframe rather than the carbon-fiber tub used on Aston’s hypercars. This Aston is more of a grand touring vehicle than its more track-focused sibling, given the lack of aggressive aerodynamic technology.
Interior, Comfort, & Cargo
With the change to a mid-engine layout, Vanquish will be moving into new territory. This means that everything we knew about the interior of the Vanquish has been lost.
Our expectations for the new design are purely speculation. According to Aston, the Vanquish’s cabin will be larger than its other mid-engine hypercars. It’s difficult to predict Vanquish’s interior design. There will be many customization options and high-end materials. We can tell you one thing: the next-generation Vanquish won’t have the small back seat it had on the predecessor.
Connectivity and Infotainment
Vanquish’s infotainment system is still unknown. It could look similar to the Vantage’s touchscreen system, but we believe the Vanquish will have a more sophisticated interface. Aston may shift its focus from touchscreens to the driving experience if Valhalla’s infotainment systems (or lack thereof) are any indication.
Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
Aston offers driver-assistance technology on a few of its models, including the Vantage sports car. The Vanquish may be offered with safety features such as blind spot monitoring and a 360-degree camera system. Visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety websites for more information on Vanquish’s crash test results.
2025 Aston Martin Vanquish Price & Release Date
A price shift could be seen for this model, as Aston Martin does not want it to cost seven figures. This supercar will be priced at around $300,000. We will have to wait and see what the company offers for this car once it is launched.
