Making a surprise return for Aston Martin‘s line of luxury automobiles comes the 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish. Autoblog got the opportunity to explore this hand-assembled piece of craftsmanship, which boasts a 6.0-liter V12 engine and a staggering 565-horsepower. With strong bonds to racing cars of the past, the Vanquish is blisteringly fast – moving from 0 to 60mph in under four seconds. The interior cockpit is composed of full-grain leather, polished aluminum detailing, and comes with a wide variety of sound and navigation features, including a Bang & Olufsen 15-speaker audio system. The car is modestly priced at $279,995 USD (base price), but might be well worth the investment for the driving experience of a lifetime.
