The Vantage and Vanquish are close to the V8 American GT coupes last built in the 60’s. With a 4,115-pound 2+2 propelled by a supercharged 420-hp V-12…And a 6-speed manual transmission…You shoot to 60 m.p.h. in under five seconds flat…With the top down and the aroma of the finest hand-stitched leather wafting into your nostrils.
The aptly named 460-hp Vanquish is $228,000 US for the ultimate Aston Martin. The Vanquish delivers an F1-style 6-speed transmission as in some Ferraris shifted via electro-hydraulic actuators. There’s no third pedal on the floor. Gear changes are made by tapping paddles up and down, as on the Ferrari 360 Modena.
