British carmaker Aston Martin brought its sleek luxury sports car, the 2014 Vanquish, to the Los Angeles Auto Show.
Featuring a 6.0 liter V-12 engine that cranks out 565 bhp at 6,750 rpm and a new carbon fiber body, the first customer-ready cars will be delivered to the Americas during the first quarter of 2013.
The new $280,000 Vanquish can go from 0 to 60 mph in four seconds flat and hit a top speed of 183 mph.
“Vanquish is the ultimate expression of Aston Martin design ethos, engineering innovation and technical ability,” Ulrich Bez, Aston Martin chief executive, said in a statement. ”It offers luxurious, continent-crossing capability and pure driving excitement without compromise.”
