Inspiration for a generation to succeed, the exquisite V12 Vanquish was the most desirable car at Geneva for us. Beneath the gorgeous coachwork is an equally stunning aluminum and carbon fiber chassis. The raging heart of this British beast is a 6.0-liter/460-horsepower V-12, promising a 190-mph top speed. Equally impressive, the most technically advanced Aston Martin ever built was subject to almost a million test miles during development, despite the minute production volume. All this for just $228,000. The line forms behind James Bond.
