I got a taste of the new Aston Martin Vanquish during a sopping wet day on a racetrack outside of New Orleans. The car was impressive but my time with the Brit-bred brute was far too brief. I needed more time. I needed to more deeply sample the new seats. I needed time to experience the revised center stack with its haptic-feedback buttons. Most importantly though, I needed time to get more closely acquainted with the 565-horsepower 6.0-liter V12 engine mounted under the sultry carbon fiber nose of this grandest of tourers.

[Disclaimer: Aston Martin let me borrow the Vanquish for a weekend, and included a full tank of gas. I said goodbye to my wife and dogs on Friday only to reemerge with a British accent on Monday morning.]
