Aston Martin all-new architecture confirmedThe new chassis architecture being planned by Aston Martin is slated to make its way to the next generation sports car. This new architecture will employ electric and electronic system developed in association with Mercedes Benz, whose parent company Daimler, owns 5% stake in Aston Martin. The plan to introduce new chassis architecture was initiated in July 2013 and finalized in December but the company has yet to reveal which models will be underpinned by which platforms and by what engines they will be powered.

Reports also reveal that Aston Martin is currently working on a replacement for the DB9 which along with the new V8 Vantage will receive a 4.0 liter twin turbo AMG engine besides the 6.0 liter V12. Aston Martin also revealed the N430 and Carbon limited edition version of V8 Vantage at the Geneva Motor Show in March this year.
