If you've got a few seconds to spare, we suggest heading toward the Aston Martin website for a little virtual window shopping. The supercar manufacturer has officially rolled out the configurator for the new Vanquish, and while the options are limited to a gaggle of colors, a few wheel choices and some carbon fiber trim, it's still fun to figure out just how annoying we can make the new ultra luxury machine. Sadly, the company doesn't offer a paisley vinyl wrap to match our smoking jackets.
The online tool doesn't allow you to play with the interior options either, but the site does give visitors a good idea of what to expect from the cabin. Quilted leather seats in hues from tame to obscene and plenty of fine details are par for the course. Buyers can look forward to 556 horsepower from a 6.0-litre V12 as well as a chassis that's a full 25-per cent stiffer than anything else on the VH platform. How much will it cost? Who knows, but it will hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.1 seconds on its way to a top speed of 183 mph (295 km/h). We guess we'd take one without the paisley wrap.
