Aston Martin's Vanquish configurator web pageEnlarge Photo
Now that luxury automaker Aston Martin has officially announced its range-topping Vanquish, based on the AM 310 concept shown at this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, it’s only logical that the British luxury brand would add a Vanquish configurator to its website.
Unlike other configurator sites (Ferrari's 458 Italia Spyder, for example), the Vanquish configurator (accessed by choosing "Configure" from the Vanquish page of Aston Martin's website) isn’t much of a time-suck. Prospective buyers can change paint colors, opt for “Standard” or “Carbon Fiber” trim, choose between seven wheel designs and opt for one of five brake caliper colors.
When you’re done, you can view your personalized Vanquish from several different angles and share your car with others, but that’s it. The configurator, at least in its current form, doesn’t allow you to view or customize the interior, which will be available to buyers in 2 or 2+2 seating configurations.
We expect that Aston Martin will serve up a considerable amount of variations for the inside, so expect to see an expanded Vanquish configurator in the coming weeks.
Look for the 2013 Aston Martin Vanquish to go on sale early next year, at a price of $279,995 in the United States.
