Jay Leno is "astounded" by the new Aston Martin
Vanquish. It takes a total of five weeks of manpower hours to build each one. That's the type of bespoke quality we're dealing with here, so don't be surprised by the Vanquish's $280,000 asking price. With its 6.0-liter V12 producing 565 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, the entire car is constructed from carbon fiber and aluminum, yet it still weighs around 3,800 lbs. But as Leno notes, the Vanquish is the true GT car in every sense.
