Aston Martin’s sinful sounding grand tourer, the 2014 Vanquish, can be seen on film for the first time in a video the British automaker just released.
The car hasn’t exactly been carefully cloaked, but this is the first time it can be seen, and more importantly heard by the general public in it’s intended environment. Aston fans and anyone who’s ever been passed by one know that if the brand does one thing well, it’s building engines that sound simply fantastic.
Official information on the car is still unavailable, but the most important piece – the exhaust note – is undeniably there. It will use the same 6.0-liter V12 engine as the old model, but massaged to make 565 hp, which is 45 more than the old model.
The video reveals the car’s interior with read leather and quilted stitching on the seatbacks. More importantly, you hear that the car is “cloaked in a suit of carbon.” Not only will the car be more powerful, but it will make a much more extensive use of carbon fiber than the old car did, meaning it will be significantly lighter than the old Vanquish’s 4,133-lb curb weight.
