Aston Martins hardly need any extra features to distinguish themselves, but that hasn’t kept the British automaker from indulging in some extravagance with the Vanquish Carbon Edition.
The Aston Martin SP10 Special Edition is born out of racing success at the Nürburgring Nordschleife. In the last four years Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4 race cars have delivered two SP10 class wins and four podiums in the uniquely challenging ‘N24’ Nürburgring 24-hour endurance race.
Here we have a 2012 ceramic grey Aston Martin DBS Carbon Edition that came in for our Correction Detail.
The Aston Martin Virage made its debut at the Birmingham Motorshow in 1988. Designed by John Heffernan and Ken Greeley it was praised for its fresh contemporary styling. It proved to be quieter and more comfortable than the earlier V8’s and was indeed the first truly new Aston Martin in nearly 20 years.
The Aston Martin Vanquish made its official entry to the grand tourer market as a replacement for the aging Virage in 2001 and was launched with 5.9-liter V-12 rated at 450 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. Production of the first-gen model ended in 2007, when the DBS rolled out as a replacement. The Vanquish name returned for the 2013 model year as an evolution of the DBS. Inspired by the exclusive One-77 inside and out, the new Vanquish kept the company’s proven 5.9-liter V-12, now squeezing no less than 565 ponies and 457 pound-feet of torque.
