Aston Martin has released a stunning set of photos of its updated-for-2015 Vanquish Volante.

The enhancements to the 2015 Vanquish Volante center around the inclusion of the new Touchtronic III eight-speed automatic gearbox that brings with it enhanced performance and efficiency. The 0-60 mph time drops from 3.9 seconds to 3.8 seconds and the top speed increases to 197 mph.

A reduction in exhaust gas back pressure as a result of transmission ratio adjustment and other changes also benefits peak power, which rises by up to three hp to a peak of 568 hp in Vanquish. Peak torque is up too, to 465 lb-ft at 5,500 rpm.

Touchtronic III delivers shift speed and moves between ratios as quick as 130 milliseconds - far quicker than even the most accomplished racing driver is capable of - while better gearbox efficiency allows more power and torque to be transmitted to the road more of the time.

2015 Model Year Exterior and Interior Enhancements

There are also subtle styling enhancements, both inside and outside the car, that add extra visual appeal for 2015 Vanquish Volante.

Outside there's the arrival of new ten-spoke forged alloy wheel designs, available in a variety of finishes, that save almost seven kilos in weight versus the standard wheel. There are also new paint color options including, for the first time on Vanquish and Rapide S, the availability of the special paint color Diavalo Red, previously limited to the V12 Zagato.

Inside, the car gets new leather trim color options including the contemporary blue-black Dark Knight, and bold Fandango Pink.

Stiffer Dampers

Uprated dampers on the new Vanquish Volante - 15% stiffer at the front and a full 35% stiffer at the rear - improve the dynamic characteristic of the car in line with its significantly enhanced performance.

2015 Vanquish Volante's Engine Management Upgrade

Away from the gearbox, the 2015 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante benefits from the addition of the latest Bosch Engine Management System. The new system, which delivers more precise engine control and seamlessly communicates with the new gearbox, receives its first application in an Aston Martin that combines the AM29 V12 engine and an automatic gearbox.

Meanwhile other electronic and engineering changes have taken place in 2015 cars to deliver a consistent GT character by aligning the chassis with improvements in powertrain performance and accessibility. For instance, a revised torque tube reduces transmission noise transfer into the passenger compartment while revised DSC sees the retuned stability system optimized for the new gearbox. A revised steering ECU delivers an even more crisp and precise steering response, according to the British manufacturer.
