Aston Martin has released the first official dynamic footage of its new AM 310 Vanquish, an example finished in Hammerhead Silver being captured tearing up and down the Italian countryside.

The Vanquish is powered by a normally-aspirated 6.0 litre V12 lump offering 565 hp and 620 Nm, and performance specs include a 0-100 km/h time of 4.1 seconds and a 295 km/h top speed.

Plenty of kit on the two-door coupe, which wears 20-inch alloys and 255/35 front and 305/50 rear Pirelli P Zero rubbers as standard, among them a three-stage adjustable Adaptive Damping System (ADS) with Normal, Sport and Track mode, ventilated carbon ceramic discs and six-pot front/four-pot rear brake calipers.

There’s also a full-grain leather interior with Alcantara headlining and a 1,000 watt Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 15-speaker audio system as standard fit. First deliveries of the AM flagship – available in 2+2 or 2+0 guise – is set to begin late this year.
