We wrote about the announcement of the new Vanquish a few months ago and now Aston Martin has seen fit to release a whole bunch of stylish photographs of this beautiful machine. The company has also released behind-the-scenes videos of the shoot itself plus a video of the vehicle on the move.
To recap, the new Vanquish is based on the familiar VH aluminum chassis platform, updated for 25 percent greater torsional stiffness. The body, which couldn’t be anything but an Aston, is for the first time made entirely of carbon fiber. This has allowed the familiar lines to be sharpened and the detailing refined to a new level plus the obvious performance and handling benefits.
The interior features and all-new control surface, borrowing greatly from the One-77 limited edition vehicle. Motivation is provided by the usual 6.0 liter V-12, bumped up to 565 hp, transferring power to the road via a Touchtronic 6-speed automatic gearbox. Acceleration from 0-62 mph will come in 4.1 seconds and top speed will be 183 mph.
Aston Martins have never been just about performance however. The ability to blast across continents in great style and comfort whilst having the occasional bout of tail-out madness is what it’s all about. Plus, the level of fit and finish and the number of personalization options have never been higher for an Aston.
The predictable downside – this extremely good-looking car will set you back US$300,000 once you’ve ticked a few options.
Check out the full gallery.
