Car Watching - Aston Martin Vanquish

I give you the Aston Martin Vanquish.  All 3800 pounds of it. 
 Under that beautiful hood rests 5.9 Liters of V12 with over 560 horsepower.  So not only is it gorgeous, but it's capable of hitting 60 miles per hour in under 4 seconds and it can blow doors up to 200+ miles an hour.
 Very Jaguar-like in the face, the Aston's have always been quite a bit different than the Jag's. 
 The canopy tapers back and rests between the awesome fender bulges.  In person, this is menacing.
The best view: 3/4 rear shot.  You get to see the canopy and the fenders meld, and the sexy side windows cut the line along the door and the fender.  Take a close look at the brake calipers and rotors in the other photos.  They are all business, with carbon ceramic discs 

You have to love Chesterfield and the cars that visit here.
