The 2013 Aston Martin Vanquish

Aston Martin’s range-topping Vanquish sports car has made its U.S. debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

As expected, the Vanquish is nearly identical to the AM 310 Concept\ that quietly debuted earlier this summer at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. Cues inspired by Aston’s One-77 supercar abound, including sharply creased side strakes, muscular haunches and elegant C-shaped taillights.

Despite those new details, the familiar headlights, grille and overall proportions ensure that the Vanquish is instantly recognizable as an Aston. Underneath the sheetmetal, the car will use significant amounts of carbon fiber and other lightweight materials in order to cut down on weight.

The Vanquish receives its motivation from a “significantly upgraded” 5.9-liter V12 developing 565 horsepower. Power will be routed to the rear-wheels via Aston Martin’s ‘Touchtronic 2’ six-speed transmission rather than a previously rumored eight-cog unit.

The Vanquish will be able to accelerate from 0-60 in 4.1 seconds and hit a top speed of 183mph.
