Aston Martin have a strong presence at Goodwood Festival of Speed, not only do they have the new Aston Martin V12 Zagato participating in the hill climb, they’ve also bought the new Aston Martin AM 310 Vanquish. The Vanquish was first presented as an AM 310 Concept at the 2012 Villa d’Este and replaces the DBS model as the central Aston Martin road car.
Aston’s new two-door coupe is available in a 2+0 or optional 2+2 seating configuration. The AM 310 Vanquish is powered by an all-alloy front-mid mounted 5,935cc V12 engine, which produces 573hp at 6,750rpm and a maximum torque of 620Nm at 5,500rpm. The zero to 100km/h sprint is done in 4.1 seconds and the top speed is 295km/h, which is slightly slower than the DBS.
The Aston Martin AM 310 Vanquish will kick start a fantastic year of centenary celebrations next year. The British brand turns a hunderd years old next year, expect plenty of celebratory models!
