Aston reveals new sports car

Aston Martin has unveiled a stunning new luxury sports car, the all-new Vanquish.

Sitting at the pinnacle of the luxury British car maker’s sports car line-up, the new super grand tourer features the next generation of the renowned VH architecture as well as a significantly upgraded 6-liter V12 engine that is considerably more potent than before.

“Today’s Vanquish is the ultimate expression of Aston Martin's design ethos, engineering innovation and technical ability,” said Aston Martin CEO, Dr Ulrich Bez. “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.”

Powered by a significantly revised naturally aspirated 6-liter V12 petrol engine mated to the proven Touchtronic 2 six-speed automatic gearbox, the new car offers impressive performance figures thanks to the V12’s peak power, all of which makes the new Vanquish Aston Martin’s most potent production model yet, outmuscled only by the limited edition One-77 supercar. Some 565bhp is generated at 6,750rpm and there’s 620Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm, which allows for a 0-62mph time of 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 183 mph.

Designed and hand-built at Aston Martin’s global headquarters at Gaydon in Warwickshire, UK, the new Vanquish, available as a 2+2 or 2+0, sits atop a broad line-up of cars including the DB9, V8 Vantage and luxurious four-door Rapide.
