Aston Martin Announce the Vanquish S

16 Nov , 2016  

Aston Martin have announced the Vanquish S, an overhaul of the current Vanquish.

In the looks department, the Vanquish S has been given a new aerodynamic package which includes exposed carbon fibre, revised front splitter and rear diffuser and new quad exhaust outlets.

The new range of options can also help towards the good looks which include new forged 5-spoke diamond turned alloys, carbon fibre bonnet louvres and striking painted graphics packs.

Inside, the Vanquish S will come a new ‘Filograph’ quilted leather and Satin Chopped Carbon Fibre fascia panel. Vanquish S is embodied on the headrests which add towards the high amounts of detail.

The Vanquish S uses the same 6.0 litre V12 engine as the Vanquish but now produces up to 600PS. A revised, freer-breathing intake system has helped increase the throttle response.

Paired with the engine will be a 8-speed Touchtronic III transmission. It has been tweaked to provide faster gearshifts and also be smooth at low speeds.

The suspension, spring rates, anti-roll bar bushes and damper internals have also been improved on.

“From the moment the original Vanquish was launched it became a modern icon. It propelled Aston Martin from an era of hand-built cars to one where craftsmanship and technology combined to create a new kind of great British GT,” said Dr. Andy Palmer, Aston Martin President & CEO.

“In its second generation the Vanquish maintained that momentum with huge engineering advances such as its all-carbon fibre bodywork and compelling, contemporary styling. Now, the Vanquish S takes things a step further, confidently asserting itself within the Aston Martin range and distinguishing itself from the new DB11. A spectacular machine in every sense, the Vanquish S is a magnificent addition to our range.”   

The Vanquish S is available as a coupe and convertible (Volante) and will start from £199,950. Deliveries will start next month.
