2013 Aston Martin Vanquish

New For 2013

The Vanquish is an all-new model for Aston Martin, replacing the DBS as the British brand’s top model, but you might recognize the styling, the V-12 engine, and the name. Aston Martin previously applied the Vanquish moniker to its most powerful and most expensive model from 2001 to 2007. The Vanquish comes as a coupe for now, but if history is any indication, a folding-roof Volante can’t be far off.


The raciest Aston Martin looks the part, thanks to styling cues drawn from the million-dollar, limited-edition One-77. With uniquely sculpted haunches and lurid fascias, the high-speed, high-performance, high-dollar Aston finally stands apart from its lesser siblings. Carbon-fiber body panels are again part of the pedigree, and Aston has taken new steps to control weight by sprinkling bits of the composite material into the VH architecture. The result is a car that weighs 123 pounds less than last year’s DBS Carbon Edition. Whereas weight has dropped, power has increased, with the 5.9-liter V-12 receiving variable intake- and exhaust-valve timing, a slightly higher compression ratio, and an upgraded fuel pump to generate a 55-hp gain. Total output now registers 565 hp, and torque is up 37 lb-ft to 457. The six-speed automatic transmission (sadly, no manual is offered) is armed with a new launch control system that helps the Vanquish sprint to 62 mph in 4.1 seconds, 0.2 second quicker than the DBS. The Vanquish is capable of a top speed of 183 mph. Nearly seven leather hides are used in the sumptuous cabin, but the best part of the interior might be the redesigned center stack. We haven’t had any seat time yet, but the pictures reveal a dramatic new look that finally pulls Aston Martin interiors out of the 1990s.


ABS, front and side air bags, and stability and traction control are standard equipment, as is a tire-pressure monitoring system.

2013 Aston Martin Vanquish Right Side View Burnout
The all-new, 2013 Aston Martin Vanquish is less garish than a Lamborghini and much easier to drive in traffic. It has the prowess of a Ferrari and more style than a Mercedes-Benz. We rarely come face-to-face with a flagship Aston, and it’s even more rare that we have a chance to drive one. So when a Vanquish recently showed up at our door, it was an occasion. Work took a backseat and we turned into drooling car geeks who couldn't stop talking about how best to spend our time with it. Here are the twelve things we decide we have to do now that we have a twelve-cylinder Aston Martin at our disposal.

Aston Martin thinks it can disguise the fact that it was out testing the upcoming Vanquish Volante on the Nürburgring. Lucky for us, the camouflage doesn't do much to hide the svelte lines of Aston's newest convertible.

There's no doubt the 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish looks good, but does its attractive appearance match its performance? In this week's episode of Ignition, host Carlos Lago puts the One-77-inspired DB9 replacement to the test to discover whether it it's more than just a pretty face.
