Oh look, a car attempting to replicate a jaundiced zebra! Not even you can have failed to notice that behind the disguise lurks the all-new Aston Martin Vantage. Of course not. But why the disguise? It’s not ready yet. But Aston was good enough to let us borrow a prototype for our ice lake extravaganza. A quick reminder first. This is the DB11’s little brother: two seats, more sporting focus, uses AMG’s 4.0-litre twin turbo V8, developing 503bhp and 505lb ft of torque. Once marshaled in the right direction by an eight speed automatic gearbox, those numbers all trot along to the back axle where they produce either colossal amounts of wheelspin or a stability system in meltdown. When not driving on ice it’ll hit 62mph in 3.6secs and carry on accelerating up to 196mph. But first we have to get it started.
