Aston Martin’s Vanquish Super GT in motion was released on the British luxury sports car maker’s global website last week.

The nine video clips are stringed together, showing the new car on a variety of roads in Europe, and are expected to be popular with fans of the British brand who are keen to see, and hear, the Vanquish in action.

Viewers will also get a behind-the-scenes look at the intricate preparation required to capture the car in the best lighting conditions.

The Aston Martin features the next generation of the VH architecture as well as the new AM11 6.0-litre V12 engine that is considerably more potent than before.
With 573PS available at 6,750rpm, 620Nm of torque at 5,500rpm, a 0-100kph time of 4.1 seconds, the supercar notches up a top speed of 295kph.

Created as part of a comprehensive marketing and information campaign that accompanies the global launch of Aston Martin’s new Super GT, the video includes thrilling first glimpses of the Vanquish being driven in anger.

Announcing the global ‘go live’ of the much-anticipated footage online, Aston Martin CEO Dr Ulrich Bez said: “We know from the feedback we have received for other images of Vanquish that Aston Martin owners, enthusiasts and friends of the brand worldwide are very keen to see much more of our incomparable new sports car.

“I’m very happy to say that, via our site, we can now offer everyone an exciting new view of the great new Vanquish.”

Designed and hand-built at Aston Martin’s global headquarters in Warwickshire the new Vanquish sits atop a broad line-up of  sports cars including the DB9, V8 Vantage and four-door Rapide.

The £190,000 (RM941,000) super GT is hitting the road in Britain this week as it embarks on an ambitious whistle-stop tour of the luxury brand’s 21 dealerships nationwide.

The display car is travelling from city to city in a specially-created truck complete with exclusive Aston Martin Vanquish branding.

First deliveries of the Vanquish will begin in Britain late in 2012. – The Star
