Aston Martin recently unveiled the new Vanquish (left, below)—a high-performance sports car that goes from zero to 62 mph in 4.1 seconds. Its body panels are constructed from carbon fiber and its interior is more spacious than that of its predecessor. An “infotainment” system features 15 Bang & Olufsen speakers, satellite navigation, Bluetooth and a Wi-Fi hub. Available in the U.S. in early 2013; priced at about $280,000. astonmartin.com
