Aston Martin Vanquish and Vanquish Volante models are now updated for the 2015MY and as expected, the vehicles are faster and more efficient. For the 2015MY, Aston Martin Vanquish and Vanquish Volante are now available with a new Touchtronic III 8-speed automatic transmission developed by ZF, which is bolted to the 6.0-liter V12 engine delivering 568 bhp (+3 bhp over its predecessor) and 465 lb-ft (630 Nm) of torque at 5,500 rpm.
As a result, the Vanquish is much faster as the 0-60 mph time dropped from 4.1 to 3.6 seconds (3.8 seconds 0-100 km/h). Meanwhile, fuel economy was improved by 7 percent in the US combined cycle and CO2 emissions dropped by 10 percent to 298 g/km.
Top speed was improved too and the 2015 Aston Martin Vanquish is capable of doing over 200 mph or 320 km/h. And this is not all as the new transmission is 3 percent lighter than its predecessor.
Thanks to the latest Bosch Engine Management System there is more precise engine control, while the revised steering ECU delivers more crisp steering response.
The dampers are 15 percent stiffer at the front and 35 percent stiffer at the rear, while a retuned brake booster and amended rear suspension bushes are 20 percent stiffer. Also new for 2015MY is the special Diavalo Red colour, which was previously limited only to the V12 Zagato.
Inside there are new leather trim colours such as blue-black Dark Knight and bold Fandango Pink. Aston Martin will introduce the 2015 Vanquish and Vanquish Volante models in Q3 of 2014.
