Report: Aston Martin DBS successor to take after One-77 design

So we know that the current Aston Martin DBS is on its way out. However, Aston themselves have remained fairly quiet about a successor. Either way though, we do know that there is one in the works, especially after some spy photos of a hot new, unmarked Aston popped up.

From the pictures, we can see that the DBS successor takes after the One-77 supercar’s design cues such as larger front air intakes, a more angular bumper, and reshaped headlights, all for a much more aggressive look.

So far, reports have been saying that the “DBS” nomenclature may also be dropped in favor of a full name. Some have even pondered that the new “DBS” may retake the “Vanquish” name.

In those reports, power is also said to come from the usual 6.0L V12 that we’ve been familiar with, but with some new upgrades and a power boost. The body will also be lighter and more aerodynamic.

Predictions for an official unveiling are aiming for this summer.
