    NEW - Aston Martin AM 310 Vanquish

    570HP, 620Nm, 0-100 4.1 sec, 295km/h

    Like the current DBS better, but maybe it's the (quality) of the pictures and the color? yes

    Re: NEW - Aston Martin AM 310 Vanquish

    I saw video of a gray one driving the other day, nothing special, they seem to be out of idea's. They shouuld narrow their model line-up and work on performance improvements.


    Re: NEW - Aston Martin AM 310 Vanquish

    How much more lipstick and make-up can you put on VH platform and the DB9 shell?

    Cut the sausage long, it's a Rapide. Cut the sausage short, it's a Vantage. Add more spice, it's a Virage. Add even more spice, it's a DBS.

    It's all becoming a silly exercise at this point.


    Re: NEW - Aston Martin AM 310 Vanquish

    wow, asian influence does not look good on the AM body profile. It almost looks aftermarket. 

    I agree with Heist, they came across a great initial design and now they are too attached to it, its time to stop making small changes to try and refresh the thing and get a blank slate and start again. If the core values of the brand and their identity is strong enough they should be able to move past this and turn a new leaf. 


    Re: NEW - Aston Martin AM 310 Vanquish

    I can only assume Vanquish-owners around the globe will have to keep their present cars for another generation. What a disgrace compared to the previous Vanquish, this is just a Mansory'ed DBS. mail

    I believe it's called evolution not revolution. I've seen it somewhere before, I just can't think where.

     


    Re: NEW - Aston Martin AM 310 Vanquish

    At least porsche innovates technically, the Aston is using the same old platform and engine

    Re: NEW - Aston Martin AM 310 Vanquish

    The DBS looks much better, this doesn´t look like a brand new product, it´s outdated already. Anyway this color is just awful and it doesn´t help either.

    +1 ... it just looks like a Frankenstein car where Aston has put together design cues from existing cars (DBS, One-77 etc) in a melange that is far from harmonious.

    Macadamia brown only looks good on ice cream :)

    I swear it's as if the guys at Mansory took over AM. Smiley

    Re: NEW - Aston Martin AM 310 Vanquish

    Mansory is even worse than this .... I guess that before you can place an order for a Mansory car, it must be a pre-requisite that you have zero taste and don't care what people will think of you :)

     on the contrary, those who order Mansory cars want others to notice how rich and how tasteful they are Smiley


    Re: NEW - Aston Martin AM 310 Vanquish

    Or rather how rich but tasteless they are and that they have enough money to burn without caring :)

    Re: NEW - Aston Martin AM 310 Vanquish

    Looks are subjective. I too find it a bit tacky but what really buffles and disappoints me is the claimed top speed. That's some 20 kph (16 mph) less than the original Vantage S of yesteryear. enlightened

    FERRARI RULES!!!

    Re: NEW - Aston Martin AM 310 Vanquish

    I realize it's cheaper than the F12 and Aventador, but as Aston's flagship how do they expect it to compete with only 565 horsepower??? And the rear spoiler is terrible Smiley


    Re: NEW - Aston Martin AM 310 Vanquish

    Looks better in some other colors and the interior has been updated nicely, so if you are going to get passed by a Mustang, you might as well be in something luxurious, silver blonde with CF

    Re: NEW - Aston Martin AM 310 Vanquish

    the rear spoiler looks tacked on


    Re: NEW - Aston Martin AM 310 Vanquish

    Nahh AM use glue.(plus I believe that is a trunk) No real difference than the ducktail showing up on a few 911 anniversary models. Looks pretty good in this angle pictured below. AM line-up looks like a million shades of white, but this may be the best. I will wait till I see 1 in person.

    Re: NEW - Aston Martin AM 310 Vanquish

    too many design curves...
    I think designers talk about "surface tension" when talking about the looks of a car. Well, on this model, there are so many slats and rips and unnecessary lines that all the surface tension as gone, and all that remains is a shape that vaguely reminds of something beautiful...

    Re: NEW - Aston Martin AM 310 Vanquish

    The front apron looks silly ... rear spoiler looks aftermarket ... not what one expects from an Aston IMHO.

    Aston Martin has taken its toll losing Ian Callum


    Re: NEW - Aston Martin AM 310 Vanquish

    Well those few people who have seen one in the flesh swear that it is stunning. I am reserving judgement until I see one as I think it looks great from some angles in photos and not so good from others...

    Its not really a brand new model but its a big step up from the current range.  CF body panels and a reworked engine has boosted power to 565BHP and made the car more economical at the same time.

    Its more of a 997.1 > 997.2 upgrade than a whole new 991 however...

    This is the start of a clean up of the model range which can be a tad confusing to some.   Vanquish will replace DBS as the flagship model, and the current DB9 and Virage will be discontinued with a new DB9 (based around a slightly downgraded current Virage) being released soon.  There will be a "Virage pack" available for DB9 to take it back up to current Virage spec (e.g CF brakes etc...).


    Re: NEW - Aston Martin AM 310 Vanquish

    Aston did not do much to upgrade the interior dash displays. No hi-res LCD. The steering wheel still looks overly thick and a remanent from the old Vanquish.

    I do not know guys, I'm trying to find a compelling reason why someone would want this over a current spec DBS (+ a few thousands in tweaks) and I can't seem to find one.


    Re: NEW - Aston Martin AM 310 Vanquish

    The opinion of the readership of Teamspeed is almost unanimous that this is perhaps the best that AM has ever done and one of the nicest cars available now. It is interesting to see different viewpoints, I read most other forums to one extent or another. Teamspeed is more diverse and has the highest wealth demographic, so that leads me to believe that this car may be a winner.
