VANQUISH S TAKES ASTON MARTIN'S ULTIMATE SUPER GT TO THE NEXT LEVEL
◾Power of naturally-aspirated 6.0 litre V12 engine increased to 580bhp
◾Suspension set-up honed to deliver greater poise and precision
◾Exterior features new exposed carbon fibre splitter and diffuser, plus striking new quad exhaust outlets16 November 2016, Gaydon:
Aston Martin has turned up the heat on it's ultimate Super GT to create the new Vanquish S. Sharper styling, greater potency and increased athleticism define this latest evolution of an illustrious model line. One that originated from Aston Martin's legendary Works in Newport Pagnell and has proudly served as standard bearer for the marque's sporting and stylistic values since 2001.
In this, the second generation Vanquish's evolution to S specification, careful attention has been paid to the engine, chassis and aerodynamics to create a machine honed to deliver more intense thrills and even more scintillating performance.
Central to this is the naturally-aspirated 6.0 litre V12 engine, which now produces 580bhp and enjoys sensational throttle response, thanks to a revised, freer-breathing intake system. These larger volume inlet manifolds allow 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.
Building on this increased intensity, the calibration of the 8-speed Touchtronic III transmission has been revised to deliver faster gearshifts and greater refinement at low speeds for a greater sense of precision and immediacy.

Likewise, the suspension, damper internals, spring rates and anti-roll bar bushes have also been re-tuned to give the Vanquish S a keener edge in the more sporting suspension modes, without compromising its ability to deliver supple ride quality on demand.
Visually the Vanquish S can be readily distinguished by a new aerodynamic package. Fashioned from exposed carbon fibre, this revised front splitter and rear diffuser combine to deliver a meaningful reduction in frontal lift wîth a minimal penalty in additional drag. Combined wîth visually striking new quad exhaust outlets the Vanquish S has more aggressive appearance, entirely fitting for Aston Martin's most overtly sporting GT production model.
This look can be further enhanced wîth 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 sits proudly on the tailgate as the perfect piece of jewellery.
Inside, the Vanquish S can be further personalised wîth 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.
Dr. Andy Palmer, Aston Martin President & CEO said: '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.
'In its second generation the Vanquish maintained that momentum wîth 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.'
Vanquish S is available in both Coupe and Volante and recommended retail price starts from $294,950 in the ÚS. Deliveries will commence in April 2017.Source - Aston Martin The Americas
