"Flying into view for the first time, the all-new V12 Vanquish promises to put the legendary British marque ahead of Porsche and Ferrari when it debuts in spring next year and, judging by Auto Express's first look at a production-ready machine, it seems as though it will certainly deliver.
The Vanquish will accelerate from 0-60mph in under 4.5 seconds, charge from 0-100mph in less than 10 seconds and reach a 190mph top speed. The wheels are huge, with 255/40 ZR19 Yokohamas at the front and 285/40 ZR19s at the back. Another notable feature is an automatic tyre pressure sensing system, which warns of any abnormalities. All of this is powered by one of the best engines in the business – the all-alloy 6.0-litre V12, which is a development of the DB7's, and now produces 450bhp at 6,500rpm and 556Nm at 5,000rpm. It is linked to a six-speed manual transmission, which has either automatic or hand-shifting like Ferrari's 360 F1, and can change gear in 250 milliseconds.
Auto Express expects Aston Martin to launch a Vantage version of the Vanquish, with a near-600bhp power output."
Now what I want to know is will the cup holders fit a big gulp?
