Aston Martin's significant makeover will allegedly begin with the all-new DB9 set for a late 2016 reveal as a 2017MY.

Towards the end of April we heard Aston Martin saying work on a brand new architecture was underway, a logic movie taking into account the current VH platform has been around since the early 2000s. The first model to make use of the new developments will be the DB9 programmed to be unveiled towards the end of 2016 as a 2017MY.

The vehicle will adopt a new look and will be powered by an AMG engine developed specifically for this application. Around 2018 we will see a new Vantage followed a year later by the Vanquish. For the moment there aren't any plans to replace the current Rapide while the much rumored Lagonda SUV hasn't been green-lighted yet.

These new models will adopt a fresh design language and it is believed the cars will be differentiated from one another as a response to criticism of the current lineup. Aston Martin will get its own version of AMG's recently introduced twin-turbo V8 4.0-liter engine while a V12 motor based on AMG's twin-turbo 6.0-liter will be offered as well but possibly as a naturally-aspirated unit.
