Video: Aston Martin Teases a New Vanquish, Possibly the Carbon Edition
Aston Martin’s got something new on the way, and the British automaker has released a teaser video to get us talking about it. There are no details yet on what the car is, although there appears to be increasing belief that it’s going to be a special-edition Vanquish.
Actually, I’m fairly certain that this model is the new Vanquish Carbon Edition. It’s hard to make out at first but thanks to the power of "pause," I was able to make out a quick glimpse of the letter ‘C’ with a small ‘6’ on top of it and the number ’12.011’ below it. What does that tell us? Well, a quick look at the Periodic Table of Elements shows the sixth element being carbon and the 12.011 is its atomic mass.
I’m not going to get scientific about it, but it is a pretty direct indication that this will be the Vanquish Carbon Edition. You can also make out a handful of quick shots of the sports car’s carbon-fiber components, something I expect the special-edition Aston Martin will have a ton of. It may even have a carbon body kit, although that’s something I’m not entirely sure of.
Whatever the case may be, we’re going to have our answer soon because the car will be revealed tomorrow.
