The dramatic design of the Vanquish grand tourer has been given a new twist, with the release of the Carbon Black Editions of Aston Martin's flagship high-performance car making it more aggressive and vigorous than ever.
Both the Coupé and Volante editions can now carry the Carbon Black or Stratus White paint schemes, along with special wheel designs and carbon fibre detailing. The new Aston Martin Vanquish Carbon Editions can be discovered in more detail at Jardine Aston Martin dealerships in Cambridgeshire and Kent.
In addition to extraordinarily powerful carbon-ceramic brake discs (measuring 398mm at the front and 360mm at the rear), the Vanquish Carbon Black Editions come with a host of active safety features to prevent any loss of control, further ensuring the safety of its occupants. The ABS brakes of the vehicle are accompanied by Dynamic Stability Control, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, Emergency Brake Assist, Traction Control, Positive Torque Control and Hydraulic Brake Assist.With these systems providing safety and stability, the Vanquish Carbon Black is able to take on the roughest roads and worst conditions.
The monochrome design of the Carbon Editions accentuate the air of menace that is an integral part of the Vanquish character. In addition to the Carbon Black or Stratus White paint scheme, both models boast 10-spoke alloy wheels in “Gloss Black" or “Gloss Black Diamond Turned". Window surround sills with the same finish, along with a unique “eyebrow" headlight signature, complete the effect – whether you choose your model in black or white.
The plush interior of the Vanquish Carbon Editions offers occupants Alcantara, full leather or quilted leather seats and door inserts.
A prominent centre console with ample carbon fibre detailing (jet-black, like the rest of the cabin) provides access to an array of useful and technologically advanced functions.
The unique, sonorous roar of Aston Martin's V12 engine remains unchanged in the Vanquish Carbon Black Editions.This unit delivers colossal maximum power of 576PS, whilst its 630Nm of torque at 5500rpm can thrust it from a standing start to 60mph in 3.6 seconds.
Taking it to a maximum top speed of 201mph (197mph in Volante models).The power delivery is also smooth and uninterrupted, due to the efficiency of the car's eight-speed Touchtronic III automatic transmission.
A three-stage Adaptive Damping System offers the driver a choice of Normal, Sport and Track modes, each of which offer their own distinct capabilities and characteristics.
Although a driver-focused vehicle, the cabin's infotainment system still allows you to stay connected to the outside world, and offers easy access to the state-of-the-art Bang & Olufsen speaker system.
