Aston to replace AMG V8 with hybrid V6, secures V12 future

It’s fair to say that Aston Martin has been having a tough time of things lately. The company’s share price has tanked since an IPO in October 2018, with a consortium led by Canadian billionaire Lawrence Stroll bringing investment earlier this year, but also taking a large stake in the company. Development of electric models has been suspended for at least five years, and the corporate house has been bet on the success of the forthcoming DBX SUV. Yet CEO Andy Palmer is still smiling.

Lagonda All-Terrain Concept teased

Lagonda will reveal its second concept car at the 2019 Geneva motor show, designed to offer a glimpse of how its fully-electric off-roader will look. The new All-Terrain Concept will be the first production Lagonda. It appears to be a raised version of the autonomous concept unveiled last year in Geneva. Billed as an "entirely new approach to luxury", the Lagonda Vision Concept (below) was fully electric, and didn't require any driver inputs. Steering yourself is so 2016, you see.

Andy Palmer, the outspoken boss of British prestige marque Aston Martin, says the next Rapide will offer a heroic electric option - and that Tesla’s latest power upgrade, Ludicrous Mode, “is stupid”. Speaking with industry journal Automotive News at this week’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California, Palmer promised his company is pulling out all the stops on the next generation of its sleek four-door coupe.
