Since we're on the topic of Aston Martin Vanquish, there is a need for clarification. Some have designated this upcoming edition as the 2012 or the 2013 Aston Martin Vanquish, even something as simple as "The New Vanquish." Though all of them would be accurate in some ways, the official designation would be the 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish, the model year when it becomes more readily available. With that said, the new model is a beast of a machine. Built upon an all-aluminum monocoque chassis and finished with carbon fiber body panels, a combination which led to a lighter design yet with a 25% increase in rigidity. Add on the 6.0-liter V12 powerplant, its ability to kick in 565 horsepower with ease, and you have a car that is a worthy successor to the Aston Martin DBS. Engaging for driver, passenger, even onlookers, the Vanquish clocked in just 4 seconds from 0 to 60 miles per hour. But this ultimate expression of speed will cost you as well, with a base price tag of US$ 282,110. But its worth every cent you put in.
