Official Release: Aston Martin Vanquish

The new Aston Martin, featuring the next-gen of the VH architecture, boasts a new passive engineering feature in the form of a new Aero Duct on the rear boot lid that counteracts lift at the rear when travelling at speed.
Power comes from a heavily revised naturally aspirated 6.0-liter V12 gasoline unit mated to the Touchtronic 2 six-speed automatic transmission, generating 565hp and 457lb-ft of torque.
Performance is rated a 4.1 seconds for 0-62mph and a top speed of 183mph.


All that said, this car is seriously underpowered for todays standars. Not impressive IMO.

it's around 100hp short, this kind of car at this sort of price needs at least 650hp.

beautiful, but...

i don't see the point of this car.

Are they not capable of developing a new engine? This engine has been through the entire AM vehicle line up. We have the V12 Vantage, DB9, DBS, Virage... How is this car any different from the rest of the line up?

And their design team? All they do is mock up sketches of future cars using tracing paper.
