Based on the leaked official info, expect a full spate of carbon fiber bodywork wrapped tightly around the latest iteration of Aston's VH platform. A 6.0-liter V12 engine will be nestled up front that sends 565 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic gearbox with paddle shifters.
The leather-lined cabin will apparently be available in both two-seat and 2+2 configurations, while pricing is said to start around $300,000 in the US or £189,995 if you live in the UK.
As you can see, Aston Martin is busy testing its new Vanquish at the Nürburgring, but we're not expecting an official introduction until the 2012 Paris Motor Show in September. Have a sneak peek at our gallery of spy photos above and the official leaked images from Aston Martin below.
