Aston Martin today launched its 183mph flagship supercar at £189,995. The car built in Warwickshire is on sale now and will be delivered in late 2012. It has a 6.0 litre V12 engine and 565 brake horse power and can do 0-60mph in just 4.1 seconds.
The car comes with F1 paddles and has a six speed gear box. The touches that set it apart are Super-strong aluminium, magnesium carbon-fibre body, 20 inch alloys amongst many others. Each panel has been sculpted so make it more stream line and help the cool the brakes.
Aston Martin chief executive Dr Ulrich Bez said: ‘The Vanquish is the ultimate expression of Aston Martin design ethos, engineering innovation and technical ability. It offers luxurious, continent-crossing capability and pure driving excitement without compromise. I believe the car unveiled today once again puts this great British brand at the top of its class. It also represents the perfect way to signal the beginning of our centenary celebrations next year.’
