Aston Martin AM310 Vanquish at the ‘Ring [Video]
Even tough the new Aston Martin Vanquish has been revealed, even making a guest appearance at the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed, it’s still undergoing testing at the Nurburgring track in Germany.
Both a full-boddied pre-production test vehicle and a camouflaged Vanquish were spotted testing. The actual production version should actually be ready for customer deliveries in Winter 2012.
The replacement for the DB9 is built on a hollow-cast aluminum chassis and a carbon fiber body. This makes the car 55 kg or 120 lbs lighter, but also 25 percent stiffer.
Powering the car is a 6-liter V12 engine that delivers 565bhp (573 PS), which is 55 hp more than the DBS. Zero to 100 km/h is dealt with in 4.1 seconds and the car reach a top speed of 295km/h (183mph).
