The smaller unit will find its way into all future Aston Martin models as part of a deal the British signed with Daimler, the parent company of Mercedes-Benz. The new car was considered to be such an advance on the old that Aston Martin had decided a straightforward sequential numbering would be considered inappropriate, hence why it was not titled DB8.

The car will debut in October at the Paris Auto Show and will go on sale shortly after. In summer 2005, Aston adds the Vantage V-8, a smaller two-seat 911 fighter to be built as a coupe and roadster.
