We've already been introduced to the jaw dropping Aston Martin Vanquish, and thoroughly impressed by the 550 hp V12, the 4.1 second 0-60 time, and the interior that is, in our not terribly humble collective opinion, one of the best on the market at the moment

The big Aston GT is certainly track ready, but that isn't its sole purpose. It's made to be a stunning vehicle for pleasure cruises, vacationing, and, if the owner desires, some track days as well. Since an essential part of the French riviera experience involves the cool sea breeze, this means that many have no doubt been waiting for the inevitable Vanquish Volante. For those well heeled few with $297,995 to spend on a spectacular car, the time is neigh.
