The Aston Martin the Vanquish is a lighter, leaner, more stylish and contemporary offering to the lineup with supercar-league performance, responsive handling and an eye-catching exterior design. The Vanquish (coupe) and Vanquish Volante (convertible) are both powered by a 6.0L V12 engine, making 568 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. It's teamed to a "Touchtronic III" 8-speed automatic transmission with magnesium steering-wheel shift paddles that can order up shifts manually when desired. The Vanquish comes equipped as a prestige-luxury model, including full-grain leather upholstery, an Alcantara (faux-suede) headliner, heated power front seats with memory settings, heated power-folding side mirrors, front and rear parking sensors, cruise control, automatic climate control, Bluetooth audio streaming and hands-free, a Garmin navigation system and a powerful 13-speaker, 1000-watt Bang & Olufsen premium audio system that has full iPhone integration and USB input. As is the case for a prestige brand such as Aston Martin, options are reserved for customization and personal expression, mainly. And there's a long list of items--such as exposed carbon fiber elements, special wheels, black Luxmil leather, embroidered headrests and a matte-black textured tailpipe. Among the few functional extras are heated and ventilated seats, a rear parking-assist camera and an upgraded alarm system. Volante models are virtually the same in features and performance as their coupe counterparts, although they instead have a multi-layer lightweight fabric power top that folds open in just 14 seconds, tucking into an aerodynamically shaped tonneau. The Aston Martin Vanquish carries into 2016 unchanged.
