Aston Martin Vanquish is back again and replaced the DBS. You didn’t read wrong or there is not typo. Aston Martin brought back the brand again, and did not use the DBS brand for the new car. As we all expected, new Vanquish looks quite similar to rest of the Aston Martin range.
New Vanquish is made from aluminium and carbon fibre composite materials. Now you have chance to choose between 2 + 0 or 2 + 2 seating options. Gearbox is still six-speed Touchtronic 2 automatic gearbox, Aston Martin did not revealed a new transmission for the Vanquish. There is also a limited differential lock to improve handling in the corners. Engine is unfortunately the same, 6-lt V12 with 573 PS of power and 620 Nm of torque. New Vanquish accelerates to 100 kph (62 mph) in 4,1 seconds and achieves 293 kph (183 mph). Acceleration of Vanquish is improved by the DBS but the top speed is lower than the DBS (305 kph – 190 mph). The interior looks quite similar to One-77, if you missed the One-77 here is your chance to experience it! The seats do not offer ventilation and the steering wheel has to be adjusted manually. I was expecting these improvements in the New Vanquish.
New Aston Martin Vanquish really improved the interior design and production quality, however Vanquish does offer the same engine, transmission and similar option list. I do hope that, at least the option list will be improved in future. Will I buy one? It is really a tough question, even though I am not fan of an Aston Martin but I cannot ignore it as well. Quite hard decision :)
