Test mule showing some new body panels - major facelift will include big changes to the body style

Aston Martin will still be sticking to its current platform for the next Vantage model but the car will be getting a major facelift, which our spy photographers have caught here near the Aston Martin technical center in Germany.

This is a test mule for the major facelift and it appears to be sporting new and wider skirts which have been camouflaged. The 2013/2014 Vantage is expected to come with major changes, which includes the body panels.

The thing about this car... is that it is very beautiful, rolling art. But for the people who want to purchase this car, like me, it doesnt add up. Beauty yes, but I test drove on all over Sandiego, and it rode like a 1972 Ford Pickup, whose shocks, had been removed. At a hundred grand or more, makes no sense for me , got out of the AM and back into my SL and felt like I was driving a RR. But still a beautiful car.

The Vantage is to me probably the best looking car in the world; I hope the design doesn't change much and they just modify certain things to put it up to date. It's gonna be nice if they update all the rest propperly, but I don't think that design can have much of an improvement!

To those that thinks it looks like the old one: it's a mule, I'm pretty sure the styling will change as is the case with most mules.

I reckon not, Mules don't have design features hidden behind that black and white tape.

I reckon so: the mule for the next-gen 599 replacement is using a 599. The mule for the Aventador was a Murcielago base. If Aston Martin claims significant restyling and that this is a mule, the final product won't look like this. Who's taking bets?

I don't know why people buy this car! Doesn't desearve its price tag. Actually they should stop making the normal version and only sell the S and V12

Clearly they're keeping their cards close to their chest with the body styling. That's just the Vantage S/ AMV12 bodykit, so I guess it's mainly mechanical changes for this prototype. I look forward to the facelift when it's revealed.

Lazy! You are better of buying the old gen and finding someone to make a body kit for you.

Yeah, looks nothing like it has since the old- gen... They worse than Posche- not even evolution but just minor adjustments to a design that basically... over 20 years old o.O

DB7 was from 1994- thats gonna be 20yrs in 2014. Perhaps you were not born yet... And at least porsche redesigns their cars and makes huge improvements, not just tunning them. Not that a newb would know... Heres ur sign...

My guess is they will follow influences of the newer Virage. Not sure what influences would/might also come from the Zatago or One-77. I personally wish Aston Martin had a stronger dealer network in the US. And could be more price competitive in the US marketplace.
