Aston Martin has trademarked a new name, “Aeroblade.” Don't get your hopes up, though, as it doesn't necessarily mean it's going to be a car called like that.
The application specifies that the Aeroblade will be used for “passenger cars and racing cars and parts and fittings therefor.” As Autoguide points out, this trademark means that Aston Martin isn’t planning a new car called Aeroblade, but is developing an aerodynamic element or a set of parts with such functions. Most likely, Aston Martin has trademarked the name of a new rear wing.

The last concept car shown by Aston Martin, the Vulcan, was fitted with impressive aerodynamic elements, so everybody is expecting some of them to be featured on the brand’s future production vehicles. Since the name Aeroblade is registered for both road cars and race cars, Aston Martin intends to use its new aerodynamic components for both purposes.

Aston Martin’s Vulcan was unveiled in February 2015 and was first shown to the public at the Geneva Motor Show. The vehicle is fitted with extensive aerodynamic elements that are obviously not just for show and are made of carbon fiber.

The new Aeroblade trademark could be used for selling additional aerodynamic components to Aston Martin customers. They might be sold as optional extras for the clients who want more downforce out of their new Astons. Who knows, maybe the company has started an aftermarket division for older models.

The Gaydon-built beast is hiding a massive 7.0-liter V12 engine, rated at over 800 HP, under its hood. The sequential six-speed transmission is mid-mounted to improve weight distribution and all of this promises a very capable car in the right hands.

Since it’s a limited production vehicle and is the most expensive production Aston Martin ever made, the Vulcan has a body made entirely from carbon fiber. Its chassis and other components are made from exotic materials as well. The British company only made 24 examples of the Vulcan and the car is sold out for a while. The vehicle’s rumored price tag is estimated at $2 million.
