This is the production spec Aston Martin Vanquish. It will replace the DBS.

The car's braking system features third generation Brembo Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brakes. The front brakes use 398 mm x 36 mm CCM discs with larger front brake pads and six-piston brake callipers from the One-77, while the rear brakes use 360 mm x 32 mm CCM brake discs with a four-piston calliper.
The Vanquish will be offered in either 2+0 or 2+2 seating configurations. Legroom is said to be up 37 mm, shoulder room by 25 mm, elbow room extends by 87 mm while knee room is boosted by 50 mm.
