Aston Martin Vanquish
The Aston Martin Vanquish is a super grand tourer released by Aston Martin in 2001 as a successor to the Virage. The first-generation V12 Vanquish, designed by Ian Callum and unveiled at the 2001 Geneva Motor Show, was produced between 2001 and 2005. In 2004, a more powerful version, the Vanquish S, became Aston Martin's flagship vehicle. The second generation of the Vanquish was introduced in 2012, followed in 2017 by the Vanquish S 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 Project Vantage Concept prototype, which debuted with a V12 engine at the North American International Auto Show in January 1998. The V12 produces 460 horsepower at 6,500 rpm. The standard Vanquish model had 355mm drilled and vented disc brakes with four-pot calipers, ABS and electronic brake distribution. Its appearance in the James Bond film 'Die Another Day' in 2002 earned the V12 Vanquish the number three spot on the list of 'Best Film Cars Ever'. The Vanquish was the basis of two concept cars, both shown at the 2004 International Geneva Motor Show, 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 kept 5935cc, but the power increased from 460hp to 520hp. New wheels, a different nose shape, a new raised boot lid with spoiler and S emblem and the addition of a small front splitter were the visual changes. The 2004 Sports Dynamic Pack was now incorporated, with sportier suspension, steering and braking functions. This model was sold for the 2005 and 2006 model years in the US with only minor trim changes. The Vanquish S had bigger brakes than the V12 Vanquish. The end of the Vanquish's production run was celebrated with the Vanquish S Ultimate Edition. With a top speed of over 322 km/h, the Vanquish S was the fastest Aston Martin ever until the One-77 was introduced in 2008. Production of the Vanquish ended on July 19, 2007, coinciding with the closure of the Newport Pagnell plant after 49 years of operation.
