Review of Aston Martin Vanquish
2013 marked the centenary year of the prime automobile company, Aston Martin. Aston Martin has been manufacturing the most beautiful and the sought-after cars in the world ever since its inception in 1913 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford.
To celebrate the completion of a glorious hundred long years, the makers had been keeping aside the best of the designs and car implementations since the last few years and launched the new Aston Martin Vanquish to lead their way jubilantly into the second century.
The 2015 Aston Martin Vanquish comes with the new generation AM 29 V12 engine, an engine which is hailed to be the most powerful GT production engine in the history of the premium car manufacturing company, which delivers 568 BHP of power, 201 MPH top speed and a remarkable acceleration scale as the cargoes from 0 to 60 MPH in a mere 3.6 seconds!
Thus, the Aston Martin Vanquish is equipped to deliver the greatest performance among all the previous Aston Martin cars and has become the epitome of performance, setting a benchmark for all its contemporaries.
The makers decided to come up with a body that requires immense rigidity and sharp agility to keep up with the phenomenally powerful engine which could only be served by the aerospace engineered carbon-fiber. Hence the engineers incorporated the most advanced carbon available in each and every panel of the car body ensuring an astounding strength-to-weight ratio.
Therefore it can be rightfully said, that the Aston Martin engineers had saved up their best to take the Vanquish to the pinnacle of engineering expertise in the hundredth year of their calendar.
Review of 2015 Aston Martin Lagonda Saloon
The current Aston Martin design director Marek Reichman uses the term ‘spiritual’ to describe the 2015 Aston Martin Lagonda Saloon. This perfectly depicts the ability and the performance of the revamped version of the age-old Lagonda which has been the trump card of the manufacturing company for long.
The company has been keeping the exact details of the car to be a closely guarded secret but a few of the specifications have leaked out, that has successfully created a stir in the automobile industry. The Lagonda has been given more generous a headroom and is over 5.4m long with an extra 300mm in the wheelbase meaning the Lagonda offers as much space as the Mercedes S-Class or a stretched Rolls-Royce.
The Lagonda is equipped with a 5.9L V12, 600 BHP engine with a top speed of 175MPH. It is build with the Aston Martin’s usual aluminum VH architecture, while the body is entirely made up of carbon fiber to ensure its agility and strength - a sure shot winner in the automobile market.
Review of Aston Martin V8 Vantage
With the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, the car manufacturers are breaking the mould of producing only highly expensive cars and are ready to roll out equally able and performance-based cars.
The car is build with absolutely to-die-for looks and gives the option of choosing any one of the five offered designs- Alloro Green with white, Jet Black with silver, Skyfall Silver with anthracite, Mariana Blue with silver, and Speedway White with silver. The interior is heavily lined with leather and offers sport seats like those in the V12 Vantage.
The Aston Martin V8 Vantage comes with a 4.7L, quad-cam dry-sump engine with 430 horsepower at 7300 rpm and 361 lb-ft of torque at 5000 rpm. The car is equipped with a sport suspension tuned closely to that of the Vintage S model and the transmission is the commendable six-speed manual with a seven-speed single clutch.
