No, This Is an Aston Martin Vanquish

There’s a car that comes with seats that don’t really move about so you so you can't fit an Ikea table inside. Its ride will jolt you if you go over a bump, and in fact you might lose a bumper if you go over speed humps at speed. So basically, it’s something for stupid people, people who should have their head examined.
But if you’re looking to buy the new Aston Martin Vanquish you’re not insane, you’re a genius. A rich genius with a taste for the finer things in life and you don’t care what your wife thinks of your petrol bingeing because it’s your money.

We’re pretty glad to hear that Aston Martin is bringing the Vanquish name back. They should take care of their heritage and offer the gentlemen racers something British to buy and enjoy.

Of course the new Vanquish, which we have photos of (check’em out, they’re really cool!) has a predecessor. This is it, and it’s really cool for a car launched 11 years ago. But the thing that ruined this Grand Tourer was a stupid gearbox, which is gone, replaced by an 8-speed built by ZF. Sound like we’re in for an almost perfect successor!

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
