Sit back, relax, and enjoy the soundtrack of that sweet V12 as we take you for a Sunday drive in the 2013 Aston Martin Vanquish.

For the best video experience, we recommend wearing a good set of headphones for the POV Test Drive at 2:55. The audio in this video was recorded with binaural microphones that, when played back through headphones, give the feel of 3D sound. Trick stuff.

You can read our Driven article on the 2014 Vanquish here: www.windingroad.com/articles/reviews/driven-2014-aston-martin-vanquish/

      corvette has its look but to be an aston owner is so much more special. when top gears clarkson was in the corvette he liked the audio system and the vent louvers started falling apart adjusting them.. no car that price point should have plastic cheap at that it should be anominiuam mesh carbon fiber class or sandwood teak gold

      I'd put a good set of studded winter tires on this and drive it in our Canadian winters.

      @NikoBell12 hahaha typical. the grammar card is low hanging fruit for your type

      improper punctuation and capitalization still gets the point across, whereas using words you dont understand doesnt

      again, you really should stop using words you dont know the meanings of

      @Chris W You really should learn capitalization and punctuation. Thinking a car isn't all that great when you haven't even driven it or had the experience of reviewing cars like it is ignorant. Look up the word ignorant because judging from your posts, your English is rather poor or maybe you're just stupid.

      They did but now Aston Martin are their own. At least for now. Ford motor company still holds a considerable percentage of the company in terms of shares but they dont have the highest word if thats what you want to call it. I think they own single digit percentages of Aston Martin now but then again Aston is doing fairly well.

      An Aston Martin is essentially a highly refined Ford, and will remain so till the company is bought out by Daimler from its current Italian and Qatarian owners.

      I'd like to know more. Can you elaborate? If this is the case, then a Mercedes is a Chrysler, a Jaguar is a ford, all Porsche are VWs, to include Audio and Rolls-Royce are BMWs

      I love how this car was filmed on the same day as the Buick Encore (@ 3:13 and 11:20)
      No wonder that Encore video showed WR drivers to be wringing it out. It must have been like crawling vs. this Aston if they were driven side by side.

      Regardless, beautiful car and even more beautiful engine. Save for the sluggish 6spd gearbox this would be the best GT car in the world.

      @Belal Qureshi I never said AMG has the perfect sound, I said Astons have the perfect sound. I was very unclear, and I apologize but I disagree when you say that AMG is the opposite of perfect sound. In my opinion, the opposite of perfect sound is the Jaguar F-Type R. It sounds incredibly fake, and I prefer the V6 sound much better.

      @Will James You craphead. Only the db10 will have it in the bond movie. And why would you look forward to such a terrible thing. Don't you like the charismatic growl of the Aston's original V12. Im only 14, but when I grow up I'm going to buy a 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish because I hate this newfangled "8 speed" gearbox crap. I don't care if the car will be old.
