I would die for one
Sachin Murthy Jun 20, 2012
Vanquish sounds bad ass lol
Skylar Grout Jun 20, 2012
Holy shit the chevy sonic is so long its like 1 syllable
Ben Bourdon Jun 19, 2012
It's full name would be "Aston Martin AM130 Vanquish", which is 11 syllables . If you include the name of the company then of course it's longer.
Carlton Salmon Jun 19, 2012
@ Thibault. Try 22 syllables long? Mind you, most people will only call it a Gallardo anyway, regardless of what edition it is.
Josh Banning Jun 19, 2012
Everyone's just gonna call it the Vanquish anyway
Nick Schnee Jun 19, 2012
Exactly. The Super Trofeo Stradale has like, 15 syllables. This has only six...
Thibault Leroy Jun 19, 2012
i think the lamborghini gallardo lp570-4 super trofeo stradale is really long when you read it all out
Phillip Holbrook Jun 19, 2012
I think they could have settled on 310 Vanquish, everyone knows its an Aston Martin.
David Pires-Ihsaan Jun 19, 2012
Mercedes-benz sl65 amg black series is long.. Lamborghini murcialago lp-670 sv superveloce is long.. This is just fine.
Mark A. Young Jun 19, 2012
The name is like six syllables.
Kyle Rowland Jun 19, 2012
I'm torn with the name because I liked the simplicity of DBS as the name.
Nick Schnee Jun 19, 2012
AM310 Vanquish doesn't sound all that bad too me...
John Serely Jun 19, 2012
I'm not sure if I like the name. They could have used "AM310" or "Vanquish" but not both, it's too long long IMO

Jeremy clarkson was wrong again!... another V12!!
Sachin Murthy Jun 20, 2012
Finally got the power to back the racing heritage
Skylar Grout Jun 20, 2012
I dont and probaly no one here owns one so you cant really say it sucks or is awesome
Michael Douglas Jun 20, 2012
Most likely it will be a works conversion just like the old vanquish. They only came with the paddle shift, but AM works came with a conversion to manual. It cost something like 14,000£
Carlton Salmon Jun 19, 2012
I'd read somewhere that there wasn't going to be a manual 'box available on this car. Can anyone confirm this?
Patrick Joseph Jun 19, 2012
Jarrod. You never buy an Aston because of it's power. Rather because it's a gentlemens sports car. It's beautiful and luxurious. The power is just a bonus.
Jarrod Mark Price Jun 19, 2012
There is a manual. Why is the auto 6-speed, not 7? Aston are a little behind it on drivetrains if you ask me. Sitting in the aventador, F12 price range with 700hp cars is going to be embarrassing come review time.
Phillip Holbrook Jun 19, 2012
Regardless of what it replaces "officially", there will not be a One-77 again, which pits this against the F12 Berlinetta and by default the Aventador.
Josh Banning Jun 19, 2012
It's replacing the DBS
Phillip Holbrook Jun 19, 2012
First page said it is the new flagship for Aston Martin, because the One-77 was a limited production car and is now sold out.
Stephen Cobbs Jun 19, 2012
@Phillip Its not replacing just taking ques from it.
Thibault Leroy Jun 19, 2012
@Philppe its not replacing the one-77
Phillip Holbrook Jun 19, 2012
No no no, if it's replacing the One-77 it needs the engine too.
John Darwin Price Jun 19, 2012
They had better offer a manual, agreedz
Kyle Rowland Jun 19, 2012
I hope they still offer a six speed manual.
Kieren Donoghue Jun 20, 2012
Normally I would hate that colour but I think that it works for this car so well! I think Aston have done enough to make this distinguishable from other Astons! Also love the power increase!
Carlton Salmon Jun 19, 2012
Simply breathtaking. Love the colour also.
Mr Two Jun 19, 2012
looks good but they need a change mite aswel buy an old db9 and get same rezctions
Matthew Crighton Jun 19, 2012
No nick, its just you thats autistic.
Matt Piccolo Jun 19, 2012
@ Matty, how do these lights look like the 911's?
Craig Lafey Jun 19, 2012
@Zaire agreed. Damn that's nice
Zaire Wilkins Jun 19, 2012
plz be in the forza Summer carpack
Matthew Mckernan Jun 19, 2012
Brilliant, it's just brilliant
Josh Andrews Jun 19, 2012
Loin the spoiler
Matty Michaels Jun 19, 2012
They look like 911 lights
Sebastian Grey Jun 19, 2012
It is beautiful.
Grant McHendry Jun 19, 2012
I kinda like that color too. On any other car it would be hideous though.
Grant McHendry Jun 19, 2012
That's A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.
Brendon Davis Jun 19, 2012
Love the taillightsZ
Paul Dickey Jun 19, 2012
I love how the lights look like the Aston badge.
Nick Sti Jun 19, 2012
Is it me or do the rear lights make it look autistic?
Crazybonbon Obobo Jun 19, 2012
That is very awesome

@phillip, I wouldn't call the F12 a GT car for the same reason I wouldn't call the Aventador a GT car, because that would be stupid, The F12 is a two-seater supercar, the Aston is not, so there is no reason for them to compete as you suggested
Skylar Grout Jun 20, 2012
... I guess it goes againgst maserati quottroppe idk how to spell
Michael Douglas Jun 20, 2012
I can't wait until the new Vanquish S comes out. Old vanquish had 460bhp couldn't break the 200+mph and the S had 520 and did 200+mph.
Garrett Dean Jun 19, 2012
LOOK at the thing.. Then just try to complain. It's not for racing, it's for rich people who want to have fun driving and look awesome, which anyone does driving one of these. And the noise any V12 makes is worth it..
Layton Cater Jun 19, 2012
O-62 in 4.1 is a little slow.... for the price. For 36,000 usd you can have factory supercharged toyota tundra that can pull those times. Yes i know it will not go around a corner or reach near that top speed.. just saying.
Carlton Salmon Jun 19, 2012
4.1 to 60 sounds about on par for a car of this size and class. I for one wouldn't be complaining about how slow it feels whilst sitting behind the wheel. As previously stated people don't buy Astons for their outright power and top speed.
Abraham Mendoza Jun 19, 2012
Hey, 4.1 isn't that bad for a GT cruiser.
Alex Roberts Jun 19, 2012
still, a little more performance wouldnt be bad
Abraham Mendoza Jun 19, 2012
The car is supposed to be smooth an comfy. Relaxed.
Jarrod Mark Price Jun 19, 2012
That's such a slow 0-60 time. Im sorry but anything this exclusive with a V12 needs easy sub-3s times. Not for bragging but just to show you are up to modern standards.
Ghee Buttersnaps Jun 19, 2012
The db9 did 186 with nearly 100hp less. Idk, something seems fishy to me
Nick Schnee Jun 19, 2012
You cry 'cos of a 3 mph difference?
Ivan Alfaro Jun 19, 2012
only 183mph?? the db9 was capable of 186!
Jason Ofhorrormoviefame Jun 19, 2012
The interiors are so nice on Astons that I can actually say the price tag seems justified despite being slightly slower to 60 than my 60k Corvette. A well done GT car, I usually think GT cars fail at speed and luxury too but this is a goodcompromise
Phillip Holbrook Jun 19, 2012
But Aston does claim to be a direct competitor with Ferrari, and their GT car (Berlinetta) makes 700 ponies. If they had just used the One-77 motor they could back up that claim.
David Pires-Ihsaan Jun 19, 2012
Its a gt car. Not a supercar...
Paul Dickey Jun 19, 2012
Astons are more luxury sports cars than supercars. I'm not surprised by the numbers.
Branden Holmer Jun 19, 2012
Not super impressed especially with today's standards but still is a beautiful car
Korli Jorlk Jun 19, 2012
I expect 200miles +

It's about $298,000 and €235,000
Jesse Weis Jun 20, 2012
£190 000, whats that? $250,000?
Carlton Salmon Jun 19, 2012
Easy. The 2+2 version has small rear occasional seats in the rear. The 2+0 version doesn't have these seats so is strictly a two-seater.
Phillip Holbrook Jun 19, 2012
The only conclusion that I can draw from a 2+0 is that there is space behind the rear seats, whereas in a standard two seater there isn't. Best example I can think of is a Mustang or Camaro with the rear seats removed.
Phillip Holbrook Jun 19, 2012
2+2 has bucket front an rear, a 4 seater has a bench rear that can accommodate 5 people in a pinch.
Bob Jones Jun 19, 2012
I don't know, what's the difference between a 2+2 and a 4 seater?
Zachary Hollopeter Jun 19, 2012
I have known the difference between a 2+2 and a four seater, but what is the difference between a 2+0 and a 2 seater?
Nick Benz Jun 19, 2012
Its not a teaser. Its been fully unveiled. Its probably just a small picture thats been blown up to fit the phone
James Lynch-Sarasek Jun 19, 2012
It's a teaser...
Brendon Davis Jun 19, 2012
What's up with the shitty quality?
Grant McHendry Jun 19, 2012
that's Gorgeous. This is definately my favorite Aston.
Kyle Rowland Jun 19, 2012
True Aston Martin interior
Justin Harris Jun 19, 2012
Awesome seats... Yet again they make an epic interior.
