With an official unveiling set for later this summer, Aston Martin is putting the finishing touches on their DB9 successor.

Recently snapped by our spy photographers, this silver prototype has an evolutionary design with an aggressive front fascia, a ventilated hood and a prominent grille. Further back, there's a dual exhaust system, an integrated trunk lid spoiler and LED taillights.

Power will likely be provided by a 6.0-liter V12 engine that produces at least 470 hp (477 PS / 350 kW). However, if the Brits are to be believed, this prototype could actually be the DBS successor and have up to 550 hp (410 kW / 558 PS).

Regardless, Aston Martin CEO Dr Ulrich Bez has confirmed the car will be a "mainstream" model that will celebrate the company's 100th anniversary.
