Aston Martin: how its range will change between now and 2022

We run down all models to expect from British marque in next four years

Back when Sean Connery was James Bond, buying an Aston Martin was simple. You walked into an AM showroom, ideally while wearing a suit, and put your name down for whichever DB model happened to be on sale at the time. After a while, if they liked the cut of your jib, they’d get around to building you one.

That’s all changing now as Aston seeks to maximise its brand power and profitability by branching out into a lot more areas of endeavour, from Bugatti-rivalling hypercars to SUVs. Anyone with the requisite amounts of cash and a lifestyle to suit the car will be eligible to enter the once-exclusive world of Aston Martin ownership.

If you’re thinking of joining the fold, you’ll need to know what’s coming out in the next four years. Here’s the stuff we know about. There could be more in the offing, who knows.

DB11

Aston Martin DB11

In the vanguard of Aston’s exploding (not literally) model range is this V12-powered grand touring machine, first released in 2016.

Vantage

Aston Martin Vantage

Any moment now (June 2018) the first examples of AM’s brand-new entry-level car will be delivered. At £120,900, this is the arguably the most important new car in the company’s history.

DBS Superleggera

Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

Once referred to as the Vanquish, the new V12 DBS Superleggera will be pounding the boulevards of Europe from June.

Valkyrie

Aston Martin Valkyrie

Thinking of putting your name down for a Mercedes-AMG Project One? Lucky you. While you’re at it, why not sign up for a £2.5m, 1000bhp+ Valkyrie? Due in 2019, it’s a joint venture with Red Bull.

DBX

Aston Martin DBX

Yes, even Aston is making an SUV. This is their first, based on the DBX concept. To be built at the new St Athan plant in Wales, it will be launched in 2019.

Rapide S

Aston Martin Rapide AMR

They’re still doing this four-door saloon at the moment, but it may disappear when the DBX comes out. That’s worth knowing from a resale perspective.

Mystery hypercar

Aston Martin Valkyrie

Mystery Hypercar isn’t the name, silly. This mid-engined LaFerrari rival is being touted as the ‘Brother of Valkyrie’. Expect to see it in 2021.

Vanquish

The DBS Superleggera isn’t finishing off the Vanquish name. That badge will come back on a McLaren 720S-class mid-engined supercar, arriving in 2021.

Lagonda saloon

Aston Martin Lagonda

They’re taking on the Rolls-Royce Phantom with this electrically-powered Vision Concept-inspired machine, also due in 2021, under the reborn Lagonda name.

Lagonda SUV

Aston martin Lagonda SUV

And here’s the SUV to challenge Bentley’s Bentayga, coming to a Lagonda showroom possibly not that near to you in 2022.
