Just as the DBS was the replacement for the old Vanquish, Aston Martin says this new Vanquish is the replacement for the DBS. The thing is, it looks more like a facelifted DBS than anything else. If you look past the chiseled bumpers and fancy sills, it is a DBS. Who cares though, when it looks this good and sounds like… well go check it out for yourself after the jump.
The music and the voice over at the end are a bit cheesy, but it does a good job of summarizing what the new Vanquish stands for:
Powered by a significantly revised naturally aspirated 6.0-litre V12 petrol engine mated to the proven Touchtronic 2 six-speed automatic gearbox, the new car offers suitably impressive performance figures. The V12’s power peak of 565 bhp (573 PS) makes it Aston Martin’s most potent production model yet: 0-62 mph in 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 183 mph.
