100 years of Aston Martin. 100 years of producing the most beautiful and desirable cars in the world. The centenary demanded something special. To produce the greatest Aston Martin in history, the car to lead them into their second 100 years - a new flagship. They did it. With the most advanced engineering, the most beautiful design and the finest materials, they have created the best Aston Martin ever. The Vanquish.
The greatest engine.
The greatest car had to have their greatest engine. Introducing the New AM11 Gen4 V12 - the most powerful production engine in Aston Martin history. 573 PS. 620 Nm of torque. 0-62mph in 4.1 secs. Vanquish has the greatest performance numbers ever reached in an Aston Martin, it’s not a Grand Tourer, it’s a Super Grand Tourer.
Revolutionary Structural Engineering.
Clothing an engine of such immense power required a body of phenomenal rigidity and razor-sharp agility. There was only one material Aston Martin could use to achieve this level of performance – aerospace engineered carbon-fibre.
They didn’t compromise. Every body-panel is constructed from the most advanced carbon available, producing a staggering strength-to-weight ratio and ensuring Vanquish is the pinnacle of a century of engineering expertise.
Technologically advanced on the outside, Vanquish is as advanced on the inside. An all-new interior includes a state-of-the-art infotainment system enabling efficient and easy control of the cabin environment. Hand-crafted capacitive glass buttons now include illumination and revolutionary ‘haptic feedback’. Vanquish takes driver and passenger usability to new heights.
New lightweight seats.
This Ultimate Grand Tourer now comes with the ultimate Aston Martin lightweight seat, reducing weight by 17kg. Specially developed for driver and passenger rigidity, lateral support, and sporting performance, an advanced composite structure includes both Kevlar® and carbon-fibre. With an exposed carbon-fibre weave on the rear and exquisite hand-trimmed leather and alcantara on specially designed front panels, the new lightweight Vanquish seats combine sports tailoring with sports performance.
The finest interior.
This is the most luxurious interior Aston Martin has ever produced. A unique Vanquish design combines the widest choice of materials and finishes ever created for a GT. All new ergonomic interior environment groupings and carbon fibre interior finishes. Contrasting seat accent colours and unique hour-glass stitching.
A million stitches go into every Vanquish, along with 100 years of history.
The next generation.
Highly distinctive, yet timelessly attractive. Unique features take the design ethos of Aston Martin into a new generation. An all-new exterior form, influenced by the One-77 supercar, sees each carbon-fibre body panel take a taut, aggressive form. The sculpted curves of the wheel arches and rear haunches define the profile. The iconic Aston Martin grille and new front-splitter create a unique "face".
The designers designed a new form of Aston Martin. Their engineers used a new material to make it a reality. Every external panel is made from aerospace standard carbon-fibre. Essential in creating the pure surfaces and maintaining the precision used to create such a beautiful design. Carbon-fibre also offers immense structural benefits. Creating a lighter body which is unbelievably 25% lighter than DBS. Vanquish is where form perfectly meets function.
Vanquish isn’t just constructed from carbon-fibre, it’s also styled with it. A continuous ring of exposed 2x2 twill weave sees the splitter, light-catching side skirts and rear diffuser blend together to plant the car visually. They also measure and position the material exactly so the subtle weave flows precisely to accentuate the car’s elegance. With an exposed carbon-fibre roof, door handles and wing mirrors also optional, Vanquish is cloaked in a suit of carbon.
A fusion of design and engineering.
World-leading design. A century of engineering excellence. The New Vanquish is the embodiment of Aston Martin in the 21st century. Take the stunning new rear Aero Duct. Elegantly designed, yet a crucial engineering asset. This subtle feature counteracts lift at high speed but also ensures the lithe shape of Vanquish continues through the rear of the car. A triumph of both design and technical ability.
Powered by Aston Martin's greatest engine. Formed by carbon-fibre. The New Vanquish is the ultimate expression of Aston Martin design, innovation and ability. Luxurious, continent-crossing capability, and a dynamic form. This is the most beautiful Aston Martin yet.
Grand Tourer is a category, but it’s also a purpose. They knew that to create their Ultimate GT demanded increasing both boot and cabin room. The story is told by three stunning numbers. 37mm more legroom. 60% more boot space. An unbelievable 140% more interior space than DBS. Vanquish isn’t just the greatest Grand Tourer Aston Martin has ever built, it’s also the grandest.
