Aston Martin Vanquish – The impeccably styled icon hits the track

Aston Martin VanquishAston Martin Vanquish is the car that marked the start of the automaker’s second century. As with any celebration, the folks at Aston Martin knew that they had to come up with something special. That’s how the automaker created the Aston Martin Vanquish.
What we’ll be checking out today is the 2015 Aston Martin Vanquish -a newer model but, with minor changes and some natty new color options to pick from. Though, it stays pretty much the same, it’s worth to check out what the company brings on the market.

The Aston Martin Vanquish still sits on the same VH architecture – the one that has underpinned the company’s products since 2004. The 2015 Aston Martin Vanquish can trace its ancestry way back.
Nevertheless, the Aston Martin Vanquish is an example of a job well done – it’s big, a bit old fashioned and impeccably styled. This is the sort of car you expect to see driving away from a casino when the sun comes up. It makes the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta look like a default choice and the Aventador commonplace.

Aston Martin Vanquish – The impeccably styled icon hits the track

Aston Martin VanquishEven though the Aston Martin Vanquish is still prety much the same it does have some amazing differences. The one thing that stands out the most is the new eight-speed automatic transmission. The truth is that this is the same ZF gearbox that you can see in many other sports car nowadays. However, Aston has re-engineered it for the Aston Martin Vanquish ‘s trans-axle layout. Oh and let’s make things clear – this is all to increase performance and performance only. With no other mechanical change, the Aston Martin Vanquish can hit 201 mph.
On the test track, the Vanquish confirmed that despite the fact that it’s a slower car, it’s nowhere near a slouch. It hits 3.6 seconds from zero to sixty mph and records a 8.3-second sprint to 100 mph.
The 6.0-liter V12 remains untouched so, do we really need to say something about it? Of course we do. The Vanquish’s V12 may not be able to match more-modern rivals on raw power but, I doubt you’ll find a more charismatic power-plant than this one. The noise of the engine is lazy and creamy until you add revs. That’s when the good stuff are on.

No, this is not the only thing that makes the roaring thing under the hood special. The way that it reponds is way more precious. The accelerator on the Aston Martin Vanquish delivers without digital delay. In addition, there are no turbos to get in the way – it’s perfectly linear and proportional.
