magnificent 6.0-litre V12 has evolved to become more powerful and more responsive. Vanquish harnesses its 568 bhp (576 PS) with remarkable results. It is capable of 201 mph (323 km/h) and covers 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.8 seconds), yet with much improved fuel efficiency, lower emissions and greater refinement, Vanquish has a broader range of talents than ever before. CONTROL & COMMAND Raw numbers tell part of the story, but it is the way this magnificent engine delivers its power that is truly mesmerising. Engineered to deliver a torrent of performance from idle to its rev limit in one mighty wave, Vanquish can reach 201 mph (323 km/h) and can cover the benchmark 0-60 mph sprint in 3.8 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.8 seconds). HIDDEN INTELLIGENCE Beneath Vanquish’s muscular skin is a super-strong, super-stiff skeleton of bonded aluminium. This structure – known as the VH architecture – has been subject to a comprehensive programme of re-engineering to achieve new levels of performance, refinement, responsiveness and safety. TWELVE TO THE POWER OF EIGHT The elemental power of the Vanquish 6.0-litre V12 now works in combination with one of the most sophisticated gearboxes in the world. The 8-speed Touchtronic III gearbox is a revolution, improving every facet of the Vanquish driving experience. Gearshifts are smoother and quicker (as fast as 130 milliseconds), refinement is improved at high speeds, more power is transmitted to the road and its lower mass improves driving dynamics. SAFEST ASTON MARTIN EVER PRODUCED The Vanquish's inherent balance, poise and predictability allow you to always feel in calm control. However, thanks to a suite of passive and active safety systems it is also designed to aid you in avoiding an incident during emergency situations. Sophisticated ABS, traction and dynamic stability control systems provide an active electronic safety net should driving conditions or circumstance mean control of the car is compromised.
