Posted on Jun 24, 2012 by

Following our post on the 2013 spied on a transporter, Auto Middle East fans have been waiting with baited breath for the official revealing. Today Aston Martin lifted the veil on the Vanquish officially, claiming that this is their “ultimate Grand Tourer.” Frankly the DBS successor could not have looked any better!

Based heavily on the Project AM310 concept showcased at the 2012 Concours d’Elegance Villa d’Este, the AM 310 Vanquish is constructed using a next generation VH architecture. The One-77 supercar has inspired the design of the Vanquish, evident when you zoom into the car’s waist area and the LED detailing on the rear.

Every body panel you see here is made using carbon fiber. The body shell’s torsional rigidity has been improved by more than 25 per cent.

The car has a 368-litre boot that is 60 per cent larger compared to the outgoing DBS.

About 75 per cent of the parts are new compared to the DBS. Aston claim the interior has 140 per cent more storage space and passenger space has increased with legroom improved by 37mm, shoulder room by 25mm, elbow room by 87mm and knee room up 50mm.

Significant upgrades have been made to the 6.0-liter V12 engine that makes 565bhp and 620Nm of torque. Power transfer is through a Touchtronic 2 six-speed automatic gearbox. 0-100kph comes up in 4.1 seconds and the car accelerates on to 295 km/h. Performance of the Vanquish is outmuscled only by limited edition One-77 variant. The power is transferred to the road via Pirelli P-Zero tires shod on 20-inch alloy rims.

    It’s a sizzling car that’s for sure, although it does costs more than I paid for my house and I can’t imagine my bank manager giving me a loan for this lol. Did you see the online customisation tool on the Aston Martin site? You should take a look it’s very cool.
