Yet another Aston Martin has been delivered to temporary storage warehouse of Almaty airport. This time it is Aston Martin Vanquish, Auto.Lafa.kz reports.
This car is not as rare and expensive, as the previous Aston Martin One-77, and it costs about 220 thousand euro. “New Vanquish is identical to Aston Martin DBS that was produced by British manufacturer Aston Martin Lagonda Limited from 1967 to 1972 in length and size of wheelbase. Though there is a difference of+ 5mm and +14mm in the width and height of the new model's interior. The car weights 1739 kilograms that is 55 kilograms less than Aston Martin DBS. It was made possible through use of aluminum, carbon and magnesium in the making of some of the car,” the website reports.
Powered by a significantly revised naturally aspirated 6.0-litre V12 petrol engine mated to the proven Touchtronic 2 six-speed automatic gearbox, the new car offers suitably impressive performance figures. The V12's power peak of 565 bhp (573 PS) makes it Aston Martin's most potent production model yet, outmuscled only by the strictly limited edition £1.2m One-77 supercar. The raw statistics speak for themselves: 573 PS at 6,750 rpm, 620 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm, 0-62 mph in 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 183 mph place the Aston Martin Vanquish firmly into supercar territory.

Earlier a rare 7.3-liter Aston Martin One-77 was brought to Almaty. There was a limited run of 77 cars sold for GB£1,150,000 in the world. One Aston Martin One-77 currently costs about $1.7 million in Europe. The top speed of the car was estimated at 200 mph (320 km/h) but the actual tests in December 2009 showed a figure of 220.007 mph (354.067 km/h), with a 0–60 mph time of approximately 3.5 seconds.
