Under the skin there’s the same 6.0-litre V12 engine found in any other Vanquish, which is good for 565bhp and 620Nm of torque. This sends power to the rear wheels via Aston’s new eight-speed Touchtronic III automatic gearbox, allowing the Vanquish Carbon Edition to see off 0-60mph in 3.6 seconds, before maxing out at 201mph.
Aston Martin has confirmed order books are now open, with deliveries on course to begin in October. The Vanquish Carbon Edition Coupe starts from £199,995 - £7,000 more than the standard Vanquish.
