Aston Martin has filed an application to register the “Aeroblade” trademark set to be used for “passenger cars and racing cars and parts and fittings therefor.”
Given the trademark’s moniker, this will likely be applied on a component rather than as a name for a future model. It could turn out to be an active rear spoiler derived from the R&D work done for the track-only Vulcan. That one comes with a very aerodynamic body that will likely influence upcoming road-legal production cars from Aston.
Speaking of which, the first new model to come from Gaydon will be the DB11 set to arrive in 2016 as a replacement for the DB9. It will utilize an evolution of the VH platform and will be powered by the company’s familiar 6.0-liter V12 engine that will be joined by Mercedes-AMG’s biturbo 4.0-liter V8.
The DB11 will be just the tip of the iceberg as Aston Martin will replace its entire lineup by the end of the decade and it will also add the DBX crossover. In addition, an all-electric vehicle in the same vein as the RapidE concept could be launched in the years to come with the help of Chinese investment group ChinaEquity.
Getting back to the DB11, it will likely show up in Geneva next March and will come with an evolutionary design taking influences from the DB10 created exclusively for the latest 007 movie.
