Internationally, Aston Martin has recently unveiled a new luxury sports car – the Vanquish. Now the company has launched their new super grand tourer Vanquish in India, with a price of Rs.3.85 crores (ex-showroom, Mumbai). By adding the Vanquish grand tourer to its line-up, it becomes the fifth model to be offered in India and will take on the Lamborghini Aventador and the Ferrari FF.
Before the launch of Vanquish, Aston Martin had been selling four cars in India for the past year, apart from the One-77 limited edition sportscar. After launch of Vanquish, it is the most expensive Aston Martin to date in India, not taking the One-77 into account which was picked up by a solitary Indian customer for a price of Rs.25 crores. These prices may seem steep to an average Indian but the company has a fan following in India where all of their vehicles in the luxury segment account for major sales.
Coming back to Vanquish, this car replaces the DBS and is powered by a naturally-aspirated 6.0-litre V12 petrol engine that produces 565bhp and is mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox. It sprints from 0 to 100 kph in 4.1 seconds while top speed is slated at being 295 kph. It has a light carbon fiber body which contributes to its sports car like driving dynamics.
On the inside, bespoke materials used in the cabin and dashboard of the Vanquish heighten the luxury quotient of the car. A brand new entertainment system is a new addition. The car gets a range of safety options like Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) with Track mode, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), Emergency Brake Assist (EBA), Positive Torque Control (PTC), Traction Control and Launch Control.
The two door car is available in two seating configurations, a 2+2 four seat layout and a 2+0 two seat layout. The 2013 Vanquish is a grand tourer is based on the new VH(Vertical Horizontal) architecture that will underpin the next generation of Aston Martin sportscars. The car also gets ceramic brakes on all four wheels for better stopping power while a limited slip differential ensures control in the curves even at high speeds.
