Details of the next supercar from Aston Martin have leaked out online. Based on previous reporting and subsequent spy shots, we already knew the machine would retake the Vanquish title and that its styling would be almost indiscernible from the marque's well-received AM 310 Concept.
Based on the leaked official info, expect a full spate of carbon fiber bodywork wrapped tightly around the latest iteration of Aston's VH platform. A 6.0-litre V12 engine will be nestled up front that sends 565 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic gearbox with paddle shifters.
The leather-lined cabin will apparently be available in both two-seat and 2+2 configurations, while pricing is said to start around $300,000 in North America or £189,995 if you live in the UK.
As you can see, Aston Martin is busy testing its new Vanquish at the Nürburgring, but we're not expecting an official introduction until the 2012 Paris Motor Show in September.
