Aston Martin Debuts Concept at Villa d’Este
|Aston Martin AM310 Concept
Aston Martin turns one-hundred next year, and, eager to demonstrate what the next century will bring, they debuted the AM310 concept at the Concorse d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in the Prototypes category in Italy last weekend.
Characteristically tight lipped about details, Aston Martin revealed little about the concept. What is known, however, is the car shares the same 6.0 liter V-12 that powers the DBS and DB9. Not a bad starting point power-wise, especially if they up the horsepower in this new design. Aston also shared that the body makes significant use of carbon fiber, no doubt stemming from the techniques used to mold the One-77’s shell.
The AM310 share a lot of the same styling cues as the One-77: the elongated headlights, the “C-shaped” taillights, and the steeply raked greenhouse, but it seems to point more to the next generation DBS coming next year. Aston Martin should release more details in the coming weeks, but so far so good. One part One-77, one part DBS, not a bad way to make a car.
