Video: 2013 Aston Martin Vanquish
Earlier this week, the new generation 2013 Aston Martin Vanquish was unveiled.
Aston’s 2013 Vanquish borrows several design cues from the carmaker’s flagship model, the One-77 supercar, which include the LED taillights. Another design particularity is the 2013 Vanquish’s Aero Duct on the rear boot lid, which is able to reduce lift on the car’s rear axle. To power the 2013 Vanquish, Aston Martin uses a new naturally aspirated 6.0-litre V12 petrol engine, which is mated to a Touchtronic 2 six-speed automatic transmission. The new Vanquish (2013) is rated with an output of 573 PS at 6,750 rpm, 620 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. This is more than enough to take it from nought to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.1 seconds. The top speed of the new Aston is rated at 183 mph (295 km/h).
The 2013 Aston Martin Vanquish was designed to be Super Grand Tourer, which means it has to be fast, comfortable and elegant. The 2013 Vanquish is going to be available in two seating configurations: 2+2 and 2+0. However, we believe that the 2+2 configuration will not offer too much room for the rear passengers. To assure the comfort of the passengers, Aston Martin equipped the 2013 Vanquish with an independent double wishbone suspension with anti-dive geometry on the front and anti-squat / anti-lift geometry on the rear.
The Adaptive Damping System (ADS) system of the new Vanquish (2013) offers three settings: Normal, Sport and Track.
The equipment list of the 2013 Aston Martin Vanquish includes 1000W Bang & Olufsen BeoSound audio system with 13 speakers, Garmin satellite navigation system, and the connectivity you’ll ever need (iPod/iPhone, USB, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Hub5). The 2013 Aston Martin Vanquish’s price starts at £189,995 RRP. Aston says it’s going to start delivering it later this year.
