Aston Martin's flagship Vanquish entered it's second generation in 2012. Available as a coupe or convertible (Volante), the new Vanquish evolved from the DBS with many design features and styling cues from Aston's One-77 Hypercar, with particular emphasis on the stunning interior and gorgeous carbon fibre bodywork.
200mph performance is extracted from Aston's 6 litre V12, while powerful carbon ceramic brakes now come as standard. Suspension benefits from three stage adjustable damping (normal, sport and track modes) for handling that belies the Vanquish's 4000lb weight.
The Vanquish has been updated for the 2014 model year with an improved 8-speed automatic transmission with LSD and a marginal power increase to 568bhp. This combination produces a decent increase in performance, with a launch controlled 0-60mph dropping to just 3.6 seconds, while top speed now breaks the 200mph barrier for the first time.
