But Aston Martin has backtracked on those plans, and instead says its mid-engined monsters are reserved for the super-rich and nobody else. According to Auto Car, company boss Lawrence Stroll was speaking with the press at the Monaco Grand Prix when he said that “volume wasn’t important” when it comes to the British outfit’s mid-engined models. Instead, the brand’s focus will be on “profitability and exclusivity,” according to the publication.
That’s sad news for anyone that liked the look of the Vanquish Vision concept that Aston Martin unveiled back in 2019.
The awesome Vanquish Vision took the aggressive stylings of the Valkyrie and Valhalla and promised to make them more accessible to mere mortals. This meant a hybrid V6 instead of the V12 you find in the Valkyrie and less of the F1-inspired aerodynamics you find on the multi-million-dollar racer.
It was an incredible sounding and looking proposition but, sadly, it’ll never materialize. Instead, if you want a mid-engined Aston you’ll be stuck on the waiting list for one of the 999 Valhallas that Stroll says the company plans to build.
