2013 Aston Martin AM 310 Vanquish: A Stunning New Luxury CarBy Staff


Aston Martin Vanquish

Aston Martin has been making cars for 99 years!  Their cars always début in 007 Movies and they do have a sexy design when it comes to cars.  For the 2013 lineup, Aston Martin decided not to make the DB9 but replace it with the Vanquish.  That’s right. The Vanquish has returned and it looks sexier than ever.

The Vanquish retains the 5.9-liter 12-cylinder, but upgraded to produce 565 hp at 6750 rpm. It served up 510 hp in the DBS. Maximum torque is 457 lb-ft at 5750 rpm, up from 420 lb-ft. Aston declined to adopt direct injection—”the benefits are not worthwhile,” an engineer told us. Top speed will be around 183 mph, 0 to 60 mph comes up in a claimed 4.1 seconds, and 0 to 100 takes less than 10. When developing the car, the engineers didn’t see any benefit to fitting an eight-speed automatic, and so the Vanquish keeps the ZF6HP six-speed box of the DBS. Sadly, there is no manual transmission, and the Graziano-built seven-speed dual-clutch box will remain confined to Aston’s sportiest offerings. At least the six-speed automatic can blip the throttle on downshifts, and it shifts up to 37 percent quicker than before. “This transmission fits the character of the car,” we are told, and that’s probably true.
