If the words “Aston Martin” conjure images of James Bond in his 1960s DB5, come see what a difference 50 years can make. The new Vanquish combines the soul of Bond’s car and wraps it in cutting-edge technology and bespoke luxury. We’re sure the cows used to make the interior are honored to be so used. The sleek exterior evokes the aerodynamics of a WWII Spitfire, which is augmented by the 420 hp V8. Need more power? This ride can be ordered in GT mode, a street-legal version of the racing model, complete with eye-popping graphics. Need even more power? Step up to the Vanquish V12 and its top speed of 205 mph that’s sure to reduce your daily commute as it raises your blood pressure;
