Aston Martin DBS successor will be called Vanquish

Aston Martin used the Vanquish name for the first back in 2001 when it unveiled the grand tourer designed by Ian Callum. After a successful run on the market and a role in Die Another Day, the Vanquish went out of production in 2007, but now it seems as though the company is considering bringing it back. British magazine, CAR, has caught the new DBS successor fully uncovered with the rear sporting a "Vanquish" badge.

This is the first and only uncovered photo of the new DBS, so the only details available are for the rear of the car. In the image, there’s an elegant integrated rear spoiler, a very elegant rear deck and a pair of blunderbuss exhausts straddling a large diffuser panel designed for maximum aero efficiency and air-cleaving. As you can see, these elements were inspired by the One-77 supercar as was originally promised.

Previewed by the AM 310 concept car , the new DBS - aka Vanquish Mk2 - will be making its world debut later this summer at the 2012 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

Choosing of the name is also important because it’s one that would create an impact aside from the car itself. Let’s hope that it’s more than just a name.

I just wonder if it has some extra-special features.

I approve of that name. “Vanquish” itself is already charismatic; once heard, enthusiasts will get curious about it.
