"The Pebble Beach week is now well established as a global celebration of the automobile and we are delighted to be a featured marque for 2013, celebrating our first 100 years, while also looking forward to the future. Along with our partners, we look forward to welcoming current owners, new customers and automotive enthusiasts to share in our celebratory events at The Aston Martin Estate throughout the weekend," said Julian Jenkins, Regional Director Americas, Aston Martin.
The Aston Martin Vanquish Volante uses Aston's fourth-generation VH platform. It is powered by a 6.0-litre V12 engine that delivers an imposing 565Bhp. Peak torque is 620Nm at around 6,750rpm. Power is sent to the rear wheels thanks to the Touchtronic 2 six-speed automatic transmission. The potency of this car is further accentuated owing to an almost perfect weight distribution of 51:49.
All this leads to a 0-100 time of 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 290kmph.
