Aston Martin has unexpectedly revealed a concept of the next DBS supercar, which shows off its new looks.
The one-off concept is called the Project AM310 and it appeared earlier this month at the Villa D'Este Concours d'Elegence event hosted in Italy.

Apart from the current wheel designs and the protruding front splitter, this show car is widely expected to have the same look as the future production DBS.
Overall the car inherits similar design cues from Aston Martin's one million pound supercar, the One-77.
At the front the grille has been slightly restyled and the headlamps now feature a row of LED daytime running lights.
The rear lights have also been redesigned and the bodyshell features deeper and longer curves with sharper side skirts to give the DBS a sleeker and more sculpted look then before.
The interior is also believed to have given a complete overhaul, although it wasn't shown publicly on this particular concept.
Like the current model the new DBS uses a 6.0-litre V12 engine, with rumours suggesting power output has increased from 510bhp to about 550bhp.
Few other details have been confirmed at this time regarding the new DBS. Reports suggest however it will make another public appearance in August 2012 at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance event in California.
The new Aston Martin could go on sale before the end of 2012, with pricing speculated to start from around £190,000.
