"Aston Martin’s great leap forward was spearheaded by the V12 Vanquish. Out were the old, fussy V8s, and in came Ian Callum, who penned a riot of convex metal so lascivious that minors nearby should need parental supervision. The Vanquish was Callum’s first clean-sheet styling coup for Aston Martin after working over the DB7 from a preexisting design. It not only represented a new styling direction for the company, it also introduced the V12 engine that defines Aston Martin in the 21st century. In the Vanquish, the V12 is good for 460 horsepower and an almost equal amount of torque, giving the motor great tractability and pushing around the extruded-and-bonded aluminum chassis with great urgency. Factor in the compliant yet sporting suspension and the result is a superlative grand touring car able to handle roads as curvy as its body, as any fast sweeper on the new Bernese Alps track will quickly demonstrate. Don’t forget to line up the Vanquish against the stunning Alpine backdrop in Photo Mode to show off the Callum design in a beautifully complimentary setting."—Official description
