Those lucky enough to be at Goodwood Festival of Speed may have caught a glimpse of the all-new Aston Martin Vanquish, purring its V12 engine up and down Goodwood hill. If there is such a thing as perfection then this may well be it. Am I being biased? Maybe a little, but I do love seeing fine British craftsmanship at its best.
CEO Dr Ulrich Bez formally unveiled the super grand tourer to a selected group of guests at The Film Museum in Covent Garden, London. He said he was very proud of his team’s efforts at perfecting the new Vanquish and is convinced that it will become one of the most admired and sought after cars on the roads.
The Vanquish was designed and hand built out of its global
headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire. It has a remarkable
carbon fibre skin, sure to be a head turner. It features next generation technology of the VH architecture as well as significantly improving the 6.0 litre V12 engine. Boasting 573bhp. Capable of 0-62mph time of 4.1 seconds, with a top speed of 183mph.
Costing from £189,995 RRP. First deliveries will be expected to begin in the UK and Europe around late 2012.
