Sitting proudly at the pinnacle of the luxury British car maker’s sports car line-up, the new super grand tourer represents the zenith of current Aston Martin design and engineering. The resurgence of the Vanquish name points to an exciting and confident future for the historic brand. The AM 310 Vanquish is a new Aston Martin featuring the next generation of the significantly upgraded 6.0-liter V12 engine that is considerably more potent than before with 565 horsepower, 457 lb-ft of torque at 5,500 rpm, 0-62 mph in 4.1 seconds, and a top speed of 183 mph.
The design represents the latest take on Aston Martin’s iconic visual language. Vanquish unquestionably sees the brand continue its enviable tradition of producing some of the most beautiful sports cars in the world. Styling cues such as the elegant new waist, elongated side strakes and LED rear light blades are derived from the One-77 supercar. Designed and hand-built at Aston Martin’s global headquarters at Gaydon in Warwickshire, England the new Vanquish, available as a 2+2 or 2+0, sits atop a broad line-up of British sports cars including the exquisite DB9, sporty V8 Vantage and luxurious four-door Rapide.
Priced from $279,995 MSRP, first deliveries of the new sports car are expected to begin across the Americas in early 2013.
