As much as we like to talk about the carbon fiber tub of the new Vanquish and how much cooler it is than anything Aston has ever made, it's not a very fast car, more of a very fast gran tourer than a supercar.
This video from the Moscow Mile is one of the first we've seen of the car in drag racing conditions. Its first opponent at the Russian even is a BMW M5 with a Stage 2 kit from Hartge. Despite being slower over the 1/4 mile, the Vanquish wins the race hands down.

Its next opponent is a much more serious 700 horsepower Nissan GT-R by Ecutec, which flies off the line and leaves the Aston to eat its figurative dust. Be that as it may, in a world without money we'd take the Aston every time!

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.
