There are very few things on this planet than can leave you both shaken and stirred. Aston Martins are unique in their delivery of both beauty and soul. Seductively powerful and oh so charming in a manner only the British brand could pull off, each new car that dons the winged emblem has a tough act to follow. The Aston Martin DBS has done its duty and earned a place in Astons history, but it is time for a successor. A car just as bold, just as dramatic as that brilliant GT. Its name is the Vanquish.
Reviving the Vanquish nameplate, this V12 is both beauty and the beast. Aston Martin’s flagship One-77 supercar has clearly influenced the new designs heavily sculpted body and intricate interior, but what is hidden beneath its artwork is just as breathtaking. A 6.0 litre V12 pounds to the beat of 565BHP, with each of those horses surging the Vanquish to a top speed of 183MPH. On the way to that figure it will hit 62MPH in just 4.1 seconds. Available as a 2+2 or 2+0, this astonishing new machine is lighter, lower and faster than its predecessor.
The 2013 Aston Martin Vanquish can be yours for £190,000 early next year.
