Aston Martin Vanquish Vision Concept Previews Mid-Engine Ferrari Fighter

Packs a new V-6 engine and is planned for 2022

After years of rumors, teases, and speculation, we finally get to see 's fighter— Vision Concept, which previews the first series production mid-engine supercar from the British marque. The cool concept revives the Vanquish name and joins the Lagonda All-Terrain Concept and at this year's Geneva motor show.

The British racing green Vanquish Vision Concept sports a clamshell front fender with slots that allow you to see through to its tires. It packs a new V-6 engine that will make its debut in the AM-RB 003 in hybrid turbo form. Aston doesn't say whether that will be the only engine option available, but we'd guess not if this is indeed aimed at the successor to the GTB, that was just revealed in Geneva with a 710-hp twin-turbo V-8.

Unlike and the AM-RB 003, the Vanquish Vision Concept features a "bespoke bonded chassis" and was developed by Max Szwaj, Aston Martin chief technical officer.

"Creating a car like this for Aston Martin is a challenge I have relished since joining back in 2017. Although it takes Aston Martin into new territory, it does so with the benefit of hard-won knowledge, ground-breaking ideas and an uncompromising mindset," said Szwaj, in a release. "The full engineering story of this car is yet to be told, but what you see here should tell you this car will not only compete at the highest level, but it will do so in a manner and style unique to Aston Martin."

No doubt about that. We can't wait to see it in the sheetmetal and (eventually) get behind the wheel.
