Aston Martin Vanquish
The Aston Martin Vanquish is a super grand tourer released by Aston Martin in 2001 as the successor of the Virage. The first generation V12 Vanquish, designed by Ian Callum and unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2001, was produced between 2001 and 2005. In 2004, a more powerful version, the Vanquish S, became the flagship of Aston Martin. The second generation of the Vanquish was introduced in 2012, followed by the Vanquish S in 2017 with a more powerful engine and improved aerodynamics. The Vanquish was succeeded by the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera in 2018.
The Aston Martin V12 Vanquish was designed by Ian Callum and had many similarities with the DB7 Vantage. However, the car was heavily influenced by the prototype of the Project Vantage Concept, which debuted in January 1998 with a V12 engine at the North American International Auto Show. The V12 produces 460hp at 6,500rpm. The standard Vanquish model had 355mm drilled and ventilated disc brakes with four-pot calipers, ABS and electronic brake distribution. The performance in the James Bond movie 'Die Another Day' in 2002 gave the V12 Vanquish the number three place in the list of 'Best Film Cars Ever'. The Vanquish was the basis of two concept cars, both shown at the International Geneva Motor Show in 2004, the Zagato Roadster and the Bertone Jet 2.

The Vanquish S debuted at the 2004 Paris Auto Show, with more power and minor styling revisions. The engine continued to hold 5935cc, but the power increased from 460pk to 520pk. New wheels, a different nose shape, a new raised boot lid with spoiler and S-emblem and the addition of a small splitter at the front were the visual changes. The Sports Dynamic Pack from 2004 was now incorporated, with sportier suspension, steering and braking functions. This model was sold during model years 2005 and 2006 in the US with minor changes. The Vanquish S had larger brakes than the V12 Vanquish. The Vanquish production run was celebrated with the Vanquish S Ultimate Edition. With a top speed of more than 322 km/h the Vanquish S was the fastest Aston Martin ever until the One-77 was introduced in 2008. The production of the Vanquish ended on 19 July 2007 and coincided with the closure of the Newport Pagnell factory after 49 years.
