Unveiled at this weekend’s Villa d-Este Concours d’Elegance auto show in Italy, the striking AM310 concept is thought to be the production model for the next-generation of DBS or DB9, albeit with several modifications and twists.
Aston Martin has been very tight-lipped over what is exactly under the sumptuous exterior of the supercar, but the concept seems to have been largely based on the previous One-77 supercar back in 2009. The AM310’s bodywork features an extensive use of carbon-fibre, a 6.0L V12 engine and the chassis from the DB9, with the exterior even more aerodynamic and muscular than the One-77.

Entered in the Concorso d’Eleganza Design Award, the concept features several Aston trademarks, such as the door handles and snub bonnet, with redesigned wheels, spoiler and grille.
Aston’s new production model is to be unveiled at California’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August this year and will undoubtedly look very similar to the AM310, though there may be some changes to the final bodywork and technology included.
Next year marks the 100th Anniversary for Aston Martin when the new production model goes on sale at just under £200,000.
