Aston Martin is expanding its unusual car horizons beyond GT cars into the realm of mid-engined sports cars. We’re not talking helter-skelter the upcoming Valkyrie hypercar, though. Instead, we’re talking about a more mainstream mid-engined supercar designed to acquire on the Ferrari 488, Lamborghini Huracán, and McLaren 720S. Andy Palmer, CEO of Aston Martin, stated this specifically when discussing days product plans with Auto Express.

According to Auto Express, Palmer said the car inclination be a competitor the 488, and will launch in 2020 as part of a plan to release a new miniature every year from now until 2023. Before the mid-engined car will be the siesta of Aston’s new GT line and the DBX crossover, and following the Ferrari fighter will be a pair of Lagonda models and the DB12. The 2020 found date is a full year sooner than we were expecting for a sub-Valkyrie mid-engined car.

Palmer cites a few reasons for accepted mid-engined. He explained that it’s the segment standard, and that it’s ideal for weight cataloguing. He also noted that going mid-engined will help bridge the gap between the top-file Vanquish GT car and the Valkyrie. That’s a gap with loads of room for another model, too, since the Vanquish intent likely be comparable to the Ferrari F12berlinetta, which costs a bit over $300,000. The Valkyrie, on the other aid, will go for $3 million and have performance comparable to the LaFerrari and the Koenigsegg One:1.
