Vanquish Returns - Web Exclusive

Aston Martin debuts their newest beauty

The London Film Museum, Covent Garden was home to the reveal of the new Aston Martin Vanquish. More than 500 Aston owners and enthusiasts were present when Chief Executive Officer Dr. Ulrich Bez unveiled the super grand tourer, just days after the sneak preview at Goodwood.

There was also a cutaway model showcasing the carbon fiber construction and skin, which you can bet is pretty amazing to see, because everything Aston makes is pure art.

The new Vanquish is built on the next generation VH chassis and houses a nicely tuned V12 cranking out 573hp and 472 lb-ft. The Vanquish leaps to 60 in 4.1sec, making it a tad slower than other models in its class, but Aston has never really cared about matching numbers exactly, because the style an Aston offers is enough to justify cost and performance for most brand-lovers.

It’ll be available as a 2+2 and 2+0, with owners getting their hands on the first models before the end of the year, at least overseas. And like all other Aston’s, the Vanquish will be hand-built in the headquarters at Gaydon in Warwickshire—what’s not to love.

How much will Aston Martin’s newest supercar set you back? A wholesome $295000.
