ASTON MARTIN VANQUISH Volante
The ultimate Aston Martin. The ultimate grand tourer. The perfection of all bliss. There is no better GT. And thanks to the 6 liter V12, this Grand Tourer forms the shell for my candidate, whom I send in the race for the “Favorite Engine Sound” in the Mobil 1 competition!
Goosebumps feeling when starting the elite V12. The roof is down, the sun is shining in the Aston Martin, and at the latest when the starter sings the one-time sound when starting a V12, because this sound is unique - unmistakable - and when the blink of an eye later the twelve-finisher comes to life with fervor - yes - at the latest then the driver has a grin on his face. It is not the sheer power of the Vanquish Volante, it is not the purchase price that is in the range of a single-family home - it is the fascination of the total work of art. No other automobile manufacturer currently has a nicer, more elegant, or more elite roadster in its range than the British from Gaydon.
The ultimate GT - the ultimate engine
Twelve-cylinder, six-liter displacement. The premier class of engine construction under the long, dignified and at the same time sporty hood. That it sounds angry and powerful from the two tailpipes when necessary, it should probably remind one of the elemental force of the AM29. 630 Newton meters, free suction, always ready to climb the speed ladder with an explosion. 576 hp. In 4 seconds to 100 km / h. The Aston Martin Vanquish Volante is a bodybuilder in a fine, noble thread. It is elegant, sporty - it conceals the tremendous muscle power under its elegant cover made of aluminum and carbon. Carbon fiber on the diffuser, sills and splinters are aggressively reminiscent of the elegant outer shell. 20-inch alloy wheels turn in the wheel arches, covered with elegant Pirelli P-Zero. 305 millimeters wide on the rear axle. The transmission was packed on the rear axle, the transaxle construction promotes balance. An almost perfect weight balance of 51 to 49% contributes to the sporty handling. Within 130 milliseconds, the automatic, operated by a paddle on the steering wheel, throws the gears into confusion.
V12 - the ultimate sound!
It is - in short - the ultimate combination. An incredibly beautiful car. A guy from an engine. According to the sound. From quietly grumbling, to seething aggressiveness, up to a pithy and all-engrossing screeching. The V12 under the carbon bonnet of the Vanquish is my "Favorite Engine Sound"!
