Aston Martin has revealed the new Vanquish S, which offers sharper styling, sportier suspension and becomes a machine that can deliver more intense thrills and even more scintillating performance. The naturally-aspirated 6.0 litre V12 engine produces up to 600PS (up from 573PS) and enjoys sensational throttle response, thanks to an updated intake system. These larger volume inlet manifolds offer a greater volume of air to flow into the engine at high revs, creating a relentless power delivery and a stronger feel all the way to the redline.
Vanquish S features a revised 8-speed Touchtronic III transmission that produces faster gearshifts and greater refinement at low speeds for a greater sense of precision and immediacy. The suspension, damper internals, spring rates and anti-roll bar bushes have also been given upgrade.
Aston martin Vanquish S comes complete with a new aerodynamic package: front splitter and rear diffuser, molded from exposed carbon fibre and new quad exhaust outlets that gives car its aggressive appearance. This look can be further enhanced with a range of new options. These include carbon fibre bonnet louvres, new forged 5-spoke diamond turned wheels and a choice of striking painted graphics packs. A new Vanquish S badge adorns the tailgate as the perfect piece of jewellery.
Inside, the Vanquish S can be further personalised with a choice of spectacular new “Filograph” quilted leather and the use of new materials and finishes, such as the Satin Chopped Carbon Fibre fascia panel. Sumptuous Bridge of Weir Caithness leather offers an added touch of luxury and tactility, while Vanquish S embroidery on the headrests provides a crafted finishing detail.
Vanquish S is available in both Coupe and Volante and recommended retail price starts from £199,950 in the UK, €262,950 in Germany and $312,950 in the US. Deliveries will commence in December 2016.
