Two days ago the Aston Martin Vanquish made its London debut at the London Film Museum in Covent Garden. Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer Dr Ulrich Bez formally unveiled the new super grand tourer in front of over 500 guests. The unveil comes after the car was previewed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last week. Two examples of the Vanquish were on display, together with a unique ‘cutaway’ display.
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 Vanquish was designed and will be hand-built at the company’s global headquarters at Gaydon in Warwickshire. Dr Bez explains:
As Aston Martin is in its 100th year and prepares for the 100th birthday of the brand in January next year, the debut of this new super grand tourer means we can look forward to the next century with confidence and real excitement. I’m very proud of the new Vanquish, and my team that have worked tirelessly to perfect it, and I’m convinced that it will quickly become one of the most sought-after and admired cars on the road.
