The 2013 Aston Martin Vanquish is sleek and sexy on the outside, its beauty goes a lot further than the depth of its skin. It is powered by a 6.0L V12 that pushes 565 horsepower. The updated V12 will drive the Vanquish to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds before topping out at 294km/h.
Aston Martin Vanquish comes with stainless steel exhaust system featuring active bypass valves. The unit will be mated withAston Martin’s Touchtronic 2 six-speed gearbox whilst the six-speed manual transmission will not be an option anymore.
The car’s braking system features third generation Brembo Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brakes to deliver shorter stopping distances with resistance to fade in even the most demanding driving conditions. CCM brakes are also lighter than a conventional system, reducing the weight of the car overall and, in particular, the unsprung weight and rotational masses, further enhancing the performance of the suspension.
It produces a finish of rare quality and complexity, with around one million separate stitches used in each new Vanquish quilted leather interior. It takes, for instance, more than 70 hours of expert handcraftsmanship to build and trim one interior. Seven leather hides are used in each Vanquish to create the sports car’s luxurious ambience.
