2006 Aston Martin V12 Vanquish


Mr. Eriksson is, likely, familiar with this beautiful car, having come to LA from the UK. Of course, it may not be on his list as it’s a different vibe than your Enzo-type super car. Still, for glorious nights spent cruising at high speeds, the Aston Martin V12 Vanquish would be a perfect selection for any multi-millionaire’s garage. At a cost of around $228,000, the Vanquish is customized to your taste – you get invited to Aston Martin’s Newport Pagnell factory to select colors and fabric.

Price: $228,000

Power and Performance: A 6.0-liter, twin overhead cam V12 that makes 450 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 400 lb.-ft of torque at 5,000 rpm, mated to a six-speed transmission that’s a clutchless manual, given the required driver input. Of course, you can just slide the shifter and not worry about it, as well. Acceleration times come in at 4.5 seconds to 60 mph and a flat 10 seconds to 100 mph. That’ll burn up those 19-inch tires, to be sure, especially given the Vanquish’s rigid and lightweight aluminum frame.

Why it matters: The Aston Martin V12 Vanquish is a car that offers the kind of performance and comfort a man of means expects, one far too sophisticated in its style to ever be involved in such Enzo hi-jinks. This is the car that makes Aston Martin a much-desired nameplate among the well-to-do.
