Aston Martin Vanquish hits the street [video]

Goes on sale later this year

Aston Martin has released a new promotional video plus 45 new photos for the 2013 Vanquish.

Designed to replace the DBS, the Vanquish features evolutionary styling that borrows a number of cues from the Virage and One-77. Notable highlights include a ventilated hood, a carbon fiber front splitter and 20-inch alloy wheels with Pirelli P Zero tires.

Power is provided by a 6.0-liter V12 engine that produces 573 PS (565 hp / 421 kW) and 620 Nm (457 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed Touchtronic 2 transmission which enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds and hit a top speed of 295 km/h (183 mph).

The Vanquish will go on sale later this year and U.K. pricing starts at £189,995.

I own a SL63. I really wanted to buy an SLS, but didn't. Not because of the money but because I am to tall and would have to scunch down to see out the windshield. I think the Aston is beautiful, but would never buy one, again not cause of money, But because I have coming to this site for years now and I have heard repeatedly from Aston owners how unreliable,or problematic the car is or the Service Manager is the closest friend. I have not had that experience with the MB's I have owned.

Have you been inside an SLS? Its full of hard plastic. The leather is mediocre. The control panels are at best average. There is nothing inside the SLS that dictates luxury, class or value for money. Where the SLS excels at is the engine and the body design. This is why you would buy an SLS. The new Vanguish towers over the SLS in almost ever single department with the exception of 1, "The Engine". AM has always been shy with their power figures in a similar way as Maserati is. I can understand Maserati because they do not want to surpass their big sister Ferrari but AM, well there is none.

Sounds awful, like a supercharged motorboat! Over this I prefer the sounds of a Ferrari or a Lexus LF-A, even my Infiniti FX sounds better than this car. I am think of the new C-X16 concept jaguar is about to bring to fruition, I am hoping it sounds better than this Brit and of course fast to along.

The technology and solutions from Mercedes may not yet work in this light years to its English garage.

My biggest gripe is that it is essentially a DBS plus, and to be frank the DBS is a far better looking machine. At the same time it doesn't have a great interior to offset the lack of performance for some, so its just a great waste of opportunity to galvanize the Vanquish name. Its not my position but perhaps if they allocated more effort into creating a more significant Vanquish instead of the One-77 perhaps they might have something better to show for after its so called renaissance in 2004. Aston is clearly returning to its 'old' ways product-wise, hopefully not financially.

Lets not forget, people who buy Aston Martins can also afford Ferrari's and high end Benzes, but they go for the Aston anyway. There's no doubt a Ferrari can easily destroy an Aston as far as performance but it's not as special to drive it doesn't make you feel as good as an Aston would. Put a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and a Merc SLS AMG next to this Aston Vanquish and I bet you, more crowds will gather around the new Vanquish

I don't like the interior. But exterior is beautiful...

For someone whose priority is not to set a good time on a racetrack, neither SLS not C63AMG come close to the Aston in terms of class and luxury. Compare Nike Air shoes with Prada boots, while you're at it.

Looks great, fine interior... But the figures arent impressive. This csr could be outmatched by a slightly tuned C63 AMG.
