Ever since Aston Martin was sold by Ford, the future has looked bright for the British Manufacturer. First came the beautiful DBS and this summer will see the unveiling of the Rapide – a four-door coupe we have all craved ever since we first saw the concept back at the 2006 Detroit Motor Show.

Aston Martin are also rumoured to be working on a new super car powered by a tuned version of the 6.0-litre V12 engine producing more than 700bhp, which would be aimed at the Mclaren SLR and the Bugatti Veyron. With this in mind, Dutch designer Sabino Leerentveld has produced some renderings of a what the concept version could look like and they have been doing the rounds over the web causing quite a stir on the forums.

Can someone say fish?

It looks like the usual rendering a student would do - a caricature of current Aston design.

... The DBS and the Rapide was designed under the ownership of Ford.

"which would be aimed at the Mclaren SLR and the Bugatti Veyron"

.... How are these two cars in the same league?

With around 700bhp it's comparable to the SLR 722, but that's about it.

This is by far one of the most beautiful renderings I have ever seen.

Aston should stick to this and not change a thing.
