Used Aston Martin Vanquish For Sale
Unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in 1998, the Aston Martin Vanquish for sale represented the next step in the marque’s lineup of V12 powered grand touring coupes. Put into production in 2001, the car housed a 5.9-liter V12 that produced 450 hp. Reaching 60 mph from a stand still in 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 190 mph, the car packed the luxury and speed it promised in James Bond’s Die Another Day and other screen appearances.
In 2004, the S became available, capable of a higher top speed of 199 mph due to its improved aerodynamics and other minor weight cutting alterations. Production of the line temporarily ended July 19, 2007, with the planned closing of the brand’s Newport Pagnell production facility.
In 2012, a new generation emerged, much changed from its predecessor and featuring several design cues from the exclusive One-77. The new car rode on a lighter aluminum and carbon composite monocoque and aluminum subframe, improving weight and performance. In addition to these structural changes, the V12 retained its displacement but increased its output to 565 hp. Aesthetically, the new car features a derivative of the classic grille, with a more streamlined profile approach than its predecessor.
In 2013, the car became available in a convertible option as the Volante. Slightly slower by .2 seconds to 60 mph in the 2014 model and heavier due to its additional structural reinforcement to compensate for its open top, the Volante provides a refined open-top grand touring experience for drivers and passengers.
The marque with a strong grasp on the “ultra luxe” market has done it again. Following a line of Aston Martins draped in carbon fiber and clad in black wheels, the Vanquish Carbon Edition demands all of the attention and admiration you would expect. Midnight black windows and headlight surrounds accompany glossy black wheels, while the interior has been treated to an ample serving of carbon fiber among the cockpit’s control panel and leather upholstery. Under the hood, is the world famous 6.0- liter V12 serves up 567 horsepower, enough to wrinkle the asphalt beneath its wheels into a smoldering pile as it bolts from 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds. Available in either black or white in both soft and hardtop configurations, the Vanquish Carbon Edition looks and sounds absolutely stunning. With a top speed of 201 mph, admirers won’t have long to observe this piece of moving art. Starting at $300,000, the Carbon Edition is a statement of pure elegance, luxury, and performance.
