The spiritual successor to the One-77, the new Aston Martin AM 310 Vanquish has been revealed by the company.

The car originally debuted as the AM 310 concept, and was recently seen in spy photos looking production ready sporting the Vanquish badge. Replacing the One-77 as the companies flagship, the new AM 310 Vanquish sports all new design elements, as well as incorporating some of the old classic look that Aston Martin is known for.

The same 6.0-liter V12 engine as the last generation stays under the hood, but with boosted ratings, up to 565 hp and 457  lb-ft of torque. All that power will be sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission outfitted with paddle-shift technology. Sprinting from 0-60 mph should take the car around 4.1 seconds, with the speed topping out at around 183 mph.

Weight has been cut on the new Vanquish thanks to carbon fiber body panels, while torsional rigidity is said to have been improved by 25 percent. Interior style comes from straight out of the One-77 , as seen by the sweeping design of the center console. Trunk space has been upped by 60 percent compared to the last model DBS, making the car a little more convenient as well.

The price has been announced at £189,995 (approximately $297,828), but will probably be a little more when U.S. pricing is officially announced.
