The Aston Martin Vanquish made its Canadian debut during the third annual Luxury & Supercar weekend held Sept. 7-9 in Vancouver, B.C. According to Aston, the V12-powered coupe represents the pinnacle of the brand.
It replaces the DBS as the halo coupe, and features design elements from the One-77 supercar including the side strakes and LED rear-light blades.
The 565-hp engine is attached to a Touchtronic II six-speed transmission, and it also makes 457 lb-ft of twist. The Vanquish name was last used in 2007.
Like every Aston in the lineup, it will be expensive, priced at $279,995.
