Aston Martin has unveiled a stunning new sports car ‘the Vanquish’. It is powered by a significantly upgraded 6.0 litre V12 engine mated to the proven Touchtronic 2 six-speed automatic gearbox; it is capable of 0-62mph in 4.1 seconds and can reach a top speed of 183mph.
Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer, Dr Ulrich Bez said “today’s Vanquish is the ultimate expression of Aston Martin design ethos, engineering innovation and technical ability. It offers luxurious, continent-crossing capability and pure driving excitement without compromise. Bearing the same name as the iconic original Vanquish that did so much to cement Aston Martin’s reputation as a maker of great GT cars in the modern era; I believe the car unveiled today once again puts this great British brand at the top of its class. The new Vanquish mixes beautiful design with impressive technology such as the superb new infotainment system. This is the latest incarnation of everything we know, informed and developed from One-77. It is the ultimate Super Grand Tourer, confident and assured and is the newest representation of Power, Beauty and Soul.”
The new Aston Martin Vanquish is priced from £189,995 RRP; first deliveries of the new sports car are expected to begin in the UK and Continental Europe late in 2012.
