2015 Aston Martin Vanquish – Hi-Tech Poetry

When speaking of Aston Martin, we generally think of automotive art. The 2015 Aston Martin Vanquish doesn’t go astray from this, and despite not being radically changed aesthetically, it’s still as lovely to watch as always. Even though there are lesser cars that produce bigger numbers, none of them do it looking as good as an Aston Martin. This is definitely a special machine.

That being said, the Vanquish’s performance is nothing to be sniffed at, with a 5.9 liter V12 engine developing a whopping 576 BHP and 465 ft-lb of torque. This is probably one of the most sought after GTs, which can quickly and comfortably devour continents at a very fast pace. Its top speed clocks in at 200 MPH and at 3.6 seconds, the 0 to 60 will give all supercars a good run for their money. This 2015 Aston Martin Vanquish is the fastest AM to date and we think it’s safe to say that this not just a Grand Tourer anymore, this should be in a new class, the Super Grand Tourer.

“Ah, but what about that slouchy gearbox everyone is complaining about?”, I hear you say. Well, we’re pleased to report that this has finally been addressed and the power of that mighty V12 engine is now harvested by the all-new Touchtronic ZF 8-speed gearbox, which is able to deliver shifts faster than you can blink, at just 130 milliseconds.

This rather impressive performance package has been wrapped up in a very advanced aerospace engineered carbon fiber body. That insures that the 2015 Aston Martin Vanquish won’t feel outdated any time soon and also this GT will have all rigidity and razor-sharp agility that V12 requires to shine.

Don’t think that the technology show-off ends on the outside, though. On the inside, the Vanquish has received an all-new full-grain Luxmill and alcantara leather interior, as well as a very high-tech infotainment system, and hand crafted capacitive glass buttons with haptic feedback. The whole interior is completely unique, with a wide range of materials and colors to choose from. Actually, Aston Martin says that this is the most luxurious interior they have ever produced. We tend to believe them. You will, as well, once you open the door and peek inside. As a matter of fact, the ignition key by itself should give you a good hint regarding the level of detail to be expected in this Vanquish: it’s made from crystal (wait, what?) and has an embedded Aston Martin logo in it.

So, does this Super Grand Tourer sound like your kind of car? Well, the 2015 Aston Martin Vanquish can be had from “as little as” $287,820, and that’s for the base model. But then again, can you really put a price on art?
