Irvine CA, 6 September 2012 – Aston Martin’s stunning new luxury sports car; the Vanquish is set to make its Canadian debut at a series of exceptional events across the country.
Aston Martin, in partnership with MCL Motor Cars and the Dilawri Group, will commence the celebrations with a special media sneak peek and an exclusive preview for attendees on Friday 7 September during the grand opening of the third annual Luxury & Supercar Weekend, held at the Van Dusen Botanical Gardens in Vancouver, where the new Vanquish will make its Canadian debut. Sitting proudly at the pinnacle of the luxury British car maker’s sports car line-up, this breath-taking new super grand tourer represents the zenith of current Aston Martin design and engineering.
