The Spirit of Vanquish. The Art of Aston Martin.

Once again the One-77 supercar
has provided welcome inspiration,
giving rise to the central ‘waterfall’
design centre console. This flowing,
elegant design houses all the major
controls for the ventilation and
latest generation infotainment
systems. It also incorporates touchsensitive
capacitive switches, which
give haptic feedback – a gentle
vibration - through the smooth
glass surface.

From the sumptuous embrace of
the softest hand-crafted leather
and the fingertip pulse of our
hi-tech ‘haptic’ switches, to the
confidence-inspiring steering feel
that connects you to the road,
Vanquish is a tactile delight.

AMi (Aston Martin infotainment) and the climate
control systems are controlled using new touchsensitive
switches. Taking inspiration from the latest
smart phones and tablet devices, these capacitive
switches are a tactile and technological triumph,
giving ‘haptic feedback’ by delivering a subtle
vibration through the glass surface of the switch
to provide sensory confirmation that the system
recognises your instruction. These haptic switches
are supplemented by a new joystick, which now
includes rotary control as well as up/down/left/right,
ensuring precise control and easy input of
instructions to AMi.
