Aston Martin is in the middle of a vibrant, frenetic renaissance, and under CEO Andy Palmer it’s firing on all cylinders. Not content with simply reviving the fortunes of Britain’s coolest company, he has none other than the world’s greatest sports car manufacturer in the crosshairs. However, in order to fully compete with Ferrari, he needed something that Aston Martin has never had in its line up; a mid-engined sports car. He has now ticked this box with the launch of not one but two new concepts, the AM-RB 003 and the Vanquish Vision, featuring Formula One technology taken from its partnership with Red Bull Racing. Expect great things.
