The “Bond” Inspired Aston Martin Vantage
Aston Martin has recently confirmed that the design of the DB10 sports car (used exclusively for the latest James Bond film, Spectre) will inspire the next-generation Aston Martin Vantage.

Consequently, the new Aston Martin Vantage will share more similarities with the DB10 than the company’s latest new sports car, the DB11, will. With that being said, the company’s chief executive Andy Palmer said that styling cues from the DB10 will be visible throughout the British automaker’s next-generation range of vehicles.
“You’ll see the DNA for sure. It’s not the same—the DB10 was done exclusively for Bond. But you will see that ‘predator’ type look going forwards. The best way I can express it is that my mother will be able to tell the difference.”
Details about the next-generation Vantage remain undisclosed, but many believe there’s a good chance it will feature a turbocharged engine.
This car seems to play a big role in the movie and it might do something we won’t expect. Good read.
