Celebrates the company's 100th anniversary

Aston Martin CEO Dr Ulrich Bez has confirmed plans to introduce an all-new model this summer.

Speaking with Auto Express, Bez said "We have to do something remarkable to mark our centenary. It won't be a DB9 with a Centenary Edition badge and it won't be a limited edition like the One-77 supercar. This will be a mainstream Aston."

The executive declined to elaborate, but Bez is likely talking about the DB9 successor. It was recently snapped by our spy photographers and has an evolutionary design with an aggressive front bumper, a ventilated hood and LED-infused taillights.

Engine specifications remain a mystery, but model could be powered by a 6.0-liter V12 that produces 470 hp (477 PS / 350 kW) to 550 hp (410 kW / 558 PS).

Oh no ! It doesn't have the number plate betwing the 2 back lights... I find that ugly on the Vantage... just a detail which irritates me.

I know it sounds hypocritical, but Porsche can somehow get away with a similar design for each 911. The 911 just wouldnt be a 911 if it looked completely different. However this does not work for Aston. They've had this design for all their models for years now, and although still pretty, its getting a bit dull. Maybe their new chief designer is a big fan of Ian Callum...
