Aston Martin does not hide that its new generation of super cars wants to, among others, represent the competition and models of Ferrari. Is Ferrari worried? Of course not!
Namely, in an interview, Maranello’s executive director, Luis Camilleri, said that everyone from Ferrari welcomed the decision of the British brand to join the companies involved in the production of performance cars. “Imitation is the most beautiful form of flattery. So the fact that Aston Martin joins us is certainly a flicker, “he said. This can be interpreted as a “puck” addressed to a British producer. Namely, the British are only now starting to deal with the construction of super cars with centrally positioned aggregates, while the Italians have for some time been the undisputed kings of that segment.
The first new Aston Martin to represent Ferrari’s cars competitor will be the new Vanquish. He was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in the form of a concept called Vision. Representatives of British manufacturers have stated that New Aston Martin Vanquish will be a direct competitor to models such as Ferrari F8 Tributo and McLaren 720S.
Since this car is still in the development stage, there are no details about it. However, it is expected that this model, in the series version, has a hybrid powertrain with a V6 engine that would develop over 700 hp.
However, the representatives of the Maranello manufacturers are convinced that the new F8 Tributo will continue where the 488 GTB has stopped, and that it will be more sold and better than the McLaren 720S. The heart of the F8 Tributo is a twin-turbo 3,9-liter V8 engine that develops 710 hp and 770 Nm of torque. Thanks to this, this model up to 100 km/h acceleration in 2.9 seconds and achieves a top speed of 340 km/h.
New Aston Martin Vanquish is still a few years away from the market, and certainly will still have time to evolve. However, it is safe to expect a strong competition as well.
