애스턴마틴은 V12 밴티지의 파이널 에디션 모델을 최초로 공개했다. 

애스턴마틴 V12 밴티지는 가속 능력, 정밀한 핸들링, 고유의 디자인 및 전통을 두루 갖춘 최고의 역동적인 스포츠카이다. 지난 2007년 첫번째 V12 밴티지 RS 컨셉트카가 공개된 순간부터 지난 15년 동안 가장 빠르고 강력하며 역동적인 스포츠카라는 상징적인 혈통까지 계승한 애스턴마틴 최신 모델이다. 

애스턴마틴은 이번 파이널 에디션 공개를 통해 역사적인 마지막 챕터를 스스로 기록하려 한다. V12 밴티지의 파이널 에디션은 전세계 한정 333대만 생산되며, 올 2분기부터 생산을 시작해 3분기부터 순차적으로 고객에게 인도된다.

 


파이널 에디션 모델은 가장 빠르고 강력한 밴티지 모델로 기록될 것이다. 최고 출력 700마력(PS)과 최대 토크 753Nm(1,800~6,000rpm)의 강력한 파워를 제공하는 쿼드 캠 60° 5.2리터 V12 트윈 터보 엔진은 중간 단계와 낮은 영역대의 엔진회전에서도 최상의 성능을 발휘한다. 

파워트레인의 강력한 파워와 첨단 소재를 다양하게 접목시킨 애스턴마틴 엔지니어링 팀의 경량화 노력 덕분에 수치상으로 기록된 다이내믹 성능 지표인 최고속도는 322km/h(200mph)이며, 0-100km/h까지 도달 시간은 3.5초에 불과하다. 

 


V12 밴티지의 무게대비 출력비는 톤당 390PS이며 V8 엔진 기반 밴티지 대비 20% 이상 높다. 경량화 소재인 카본 파이버는 프런트 범퍼, 클램쉘 보닛, 프런트 펜더와 사이드 실 등 광범위하게 적용됐으며, 컴포지트 리어 범퍼, 경량 배터리 및 차체 중앙에 장착된 트윈 배기 시스템 등 다양한 경량화 기술을 탑재했다. 특히 V12 밴티지의 강력한 배기 시스템은 1mm 두께의 가벼운 스테인리스로 제작돼 다른 밴티지 모델보다 약 7.2kg이 가볍다. 

파워트레인과 결합된 ZF 8단 자동 변속기는 차체 후미에 탑재된 기계식 LSD(Limited-Slip Differential)를 거쳐 동력을 전달한다. 밴티지 F1 에디션 모델 등 기존 모델의 데이터를 기반으로 최적화 과정을 거친 소프트웨어를 탑재했다. 운전자의 요구 사항에 따른 차량의 응답성을 분석해 최상의 변속 성능을 제공한다. 

밴티지라는 명성에 어울리는 드라이빙 다이내믹 성능은 최신 기술과 엔지니어링을 통해 크게 향상됐다. 최신의 안티롤 바, 스프링 및 댐퍼 어셈블리가 적용된 적응형 댐핑 서스펜션 시스템은 최상의 드라이빙 경험을 제공한다. 전반적인 차체 강성은 8%, 측면 강성은 6.7% 향상돼 다이내믹한 드라이빙을 즐길 최적의 플랫폼을 완성했다. 특히 차체 후미에 장착된 2차 텐더 스프링은 메인 스프링보다 부드러워 향상된 승차감을 제공하면서도 다이내믹 성능에 영향을 끼치지 않는다. 

V12 밴티지의 카본 세라믹 브레이킹 시스템은 6-피스톤 캘리퍼의 410mmx38mm 전륜 디스크를, 4-피스톤 캘리퍼의 360mmx32mm 후륜 디스크를 탑재하고 있다. 카본 세라믹 브레이킹 시스템의 강력한 제동성능은 어떤 상황에서도 안정적으로 발휘된다. 800° 온도에서도 브레이크 페이드(Brake Fade)를 방지하도록 설계됐으며 일반 브레이크 대비 23kg 경량화에도 성공했다. 

드라이빙 성능을 배가시키는 혁신적인 디자인도 확인할 수 있다. 코너링 성능과 최적화된 안정성을 위해 약 40mm 더 넓어진 와이드 바디 디자인은 향상된 에어로 다이내믹 성능과 강력한 파워가 느껴지는 디자인을 동시에 제공한다. 약 25% 더 커진 대형 프런트 그릴은 엔진의 빠른 냉각에 이상적이며, 보닛 전체에 걸쳐 말굽 형태의 에어 벤트부터 사이드 실 등은 에어로 다이내믹 성능은 물론 밴티지 GT12 등 전설적인 모델들의 디자인 아이덴티티까지 계승하고 있다. 

차체 후미의 통합 디퓨저를 포함하는 고유의 범퍼 외에 날렵한 실루엣으로 섬세한 디자인 디테일까지 제공하는 대형 리어 윙을 포함하는 에어로 다이내믹 패키지는 최대 204kg에 달하는 다운포스를 생성해 최상의 고속 안정성을 제공한다. 

인테리어 역시 밴티지 고유의 레이아웃은 유지하는 동시에 애스턴마틴 윙 로고 퀼트 및 천공 패턴의 풀 세미 아닐린 가죽의 스포츠 플러스 시트가 스탠다드로 제공된다. V12 벤티지 고유의 특성과 고객 개인의 개성을 강화할 수 있는 Q 바이 애스턴마틴 비스포크 서비스 역시 선택 가능하다.​

 

애스턴마틴 밴티지의 장엄한 피날레 모델이 될 V12 밴티지의 판매는 이미 끝난 상태다. 유례없는 인기로 사전 계약이 조기에 완료되었다. 첫 차의 고객 인도는 올 2분기에 이뤄진다.

2012년 하반기 부터 판매될 애스턴마틴 뱅퀴시, DBS의 후속이다.

Aston Martin is today unveiling a stunning new luxury sports car – the Vanquish.

Sitting proudly at the pinnacle of the luxury British car maker’s sports car line-up, this breath-taking new super grand tourer represents the zenith of current Aston Martin design and engineering.  Vanquish points to an exciting and confident future for the historic brand.

Vanquish is a new Aston Martin featuring the next generation of the renowned VH architecture as well as a significantly upgraded 6.0-litre V12 engine that is considerably more potent than before.

The design represents the latest take on Aston Martin’s iconic visual language. Vanquish unquestionably sees the brand continue its enviable tradition of producing some of the most beautiful sports cars in the world. Styling cues such as the elegant new waist, elongated side strakes and LED rear light blades are derived from the One-77 supercar.

Unmistakably an Aston Martin, the design shows a clear and coherent lineage from its heritage while providing an equally clear pointer to the luxury car brand’s vibrant future. Closer inspection reveals details such as the stunning new Aero Duct on the rear boot lid. This elegantly devised passive engineering feature, which counteracts lift at the car’s rear when travelling at speed, is a triumph of both design and technical ability.  

Performance, presence, style and great British craftsmanship – the new Vanquish has all these traits in abundance.

Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer, Dr Ulrich Bez said: “Today’s Vanquish is the ultimate expression of Aston Martin design ethos, engineering innovation and technical ability. It offers luxurious, continent-crossing capability and pure driving excitement without compromise.

“Bearing the same name as the iconic original Vanquish that did so much to cement Aston Martin’s reputation as a maker of great GT cars in the modern era, I believe the car unveiled today once again puts this great British brand at the top of its class.

“The new Vanquish mixes beautiful design with impressive technology such as the superb new infotainment system. This is the latest incarnation of everything we know, informed and developed from One-77. It is the ultimate Super Grand Tourer – confident and assured – and is the newest representation of Power, Beauty and Soul.”

As happy on the streets of a bustling city as it is carving through the countryside or long distance motorway touring, the Vanquish offers a thoroughbred British luxury sports car that’s also suited to everyday use.

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 Vanquish firmly into supercar territory. Yet the brand’s team of engineers have been working towards economy and emissions improvements, too.

The latest engineering methods, innovative technologies and typically understated classic British design come together to make the muscular new Vanquish a true super GT. For instance, each body panel on the car is constructed from carbon fibre because of its high strength-to-weight ratio and flexibility of form.Meanwhile torsional rigidity is improved by more than 25%.

Practical improvements such as a newly designed and significantly more spacious cabin and a boot that, at 368 litres, is more than 60% larger than that of the DBS, ensure the new Vanquish can carry sufficient luggage for even the most ambitious grand tourist.

Designed and hand-built at Aston Martin’s global headquarters at Gaydon in Warwickshire the new Vanquish, available as a 2+2 or 2+0, sits atop a broad line-up of world-class sports cars including the exquisite DB9, sporty V8 Vantage and luxurious four-door Rapide.  

Dr Bez said: “The Aston Martin range is stronger now than at any time in our 99-year history. The new Vanquish represents the perfect way to signal the beginning of our centenary celebrations next year.”

Priced from £189,995 RRP first deliveries of the new sports car are expected to begin in the UK and Continental Europe late in 2012.
