Aston Martin just unveiled their latest eye-popping machine, the Vanquish.

“Sitting proudly at the pinnacle” of the brilliant British carmaker’s sports car lineup, the new super grand tourer represents the pinnacle of modern Aston Martin design and engineering.

That’s a pretty precipitous peak.

The AM 310 Vanquish is a an all-new Aston Martin, with a historic moniker featuring the next generation of the automaker’s renowned VH architecture as well as a significantly upgraded 6.0-liter V12 engine that is considerably more potent than previous power plants.

The vehicle’s design represents the latest take on Aston Martin’s iconic visual language, with an elegant new waist, elongated side strakes and LED rear light blades derived from Aston’s incredible One-77.

If a supercar can be said to be subtle and understated in the best British tradition, then the new Vanquish is the one.

Now practice that plummy accent for when you say, “Do add me to the waiting list, old boy”…
