The Company claims it to be the ultimate Aston Martin. The Vanquish Coupe made its North American debut in Monterey, California in August 2013. The car is upgraded and ready to be launched in 2015. It is surprising how the company manage to upgrade their cars despite a platform and engine that are more than a decade old. This new model is two-seat cabin, front-mounted V12 engine, comes paddle shift automatic gearbox, along with the vertical doors, which gives this a better and classy look.

The 2015 model is equipped with the new generation AM29 V12 6.0 litre engine which is the most powerful GT engine in Aston Martin history. It delivers 568 bhp of power and 630 Nm of torque. The engine is matted with the all-new Touchtronic III ZF eight-speed automatic transmission with eight gears produced by four gear sets and five shift elements. The company claims a top speed of 201 mph (323 kmph) and an acceleration of 0-60mph in just 3.6 seconds. Fuel economy is improved by 7 percent in the US combined cycle and CO2 emissions dropped by 10 percent to 298 g/km over the previous model of the vehicle. The latest Bosch Engine Management System helps in more precise engine control and the revised steering ECU delivers more crisp steering responses.

The engineers designed a great chassis to enclose such an extreme engine in it. The carbon – fibre body plays a significant role in designing the body to bring out the best performance from the car. The car is also 3 percent lighter in weight than its predecessor. The engine is mounted 19 mm lower in the chassis, to help the handling. The dampers in the front are 15 percent stiffer and 35 percent more at the rear, over the previous model, while a re-tuned brake booster and amended rear suspension bushes are 20 percent stiffer. These give a better handling and stability to the car. On the exterior the car comes with a slightly more compact grill surrounded by a flowing, bare carbon splitter bonnet vents. The new running LED headlights look classy while the protruding front side skirts extending down the side gives a feeling of speed. The car comes in an option of Cobalt Blue and Sky fall Silver and Volcano Red colour on the body. Although buyers do get an option to customize their car out of the Factory. You get an optional 20-spoke or 20-inch alloy wheels.

Garmin powered navigation with a 6.5-inch display screen, a 1000-watt, 15-speaker Bang and sound system with iPhone integration, USB port and satellite radio capability, as well as Bluetooth phone and audio streaming. Touch-sensitive glass buttons vibrate when your finger makes contact, this gives a good feeling. The company provides a new range of interior lather colours, combination of royal blue and black replaces the regular black and grey interior shades. The combination of Orange with black and Pink with black are to more options to choose from.

For a near-supercar, the Vanquish is also remarkably easy to drive. It is confident, well balanced. The standard carbon ceramic brakes are massively powerful and the broader spread of torque and ride isolation makes it smooth. All together the company made an effort to make it one of the best from the house of Aston Martin.
