Introducing the 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish
The Aston Martin Vanquish has made it’s triumphant return after being on a 5 year hiatus. The return is bittersweet, however, because with the arrival of the Vanquish, we will see the departure of the DBS.
The new Vanquish starts with an all-aluminum monocoque chassis that the automaker calls its “Generation 4 VH” platform. Affixed to the lightweight framework is an aluminum, magnesium alloy and composite body, every single body panel is now carbon-fiber. Compared to its DBS predecessor, Aston Martin claims the new structure is lighter and 25-percent more rigid.
Aston Martin quotes 0 to 60 mph in just under four seconds with a top speed of 183 mph. With the base price of $279,995, the Vanquish is offered in both 2+0 and 2+2 configurations, but the standard two-seater configuration is highly recommended.
