Unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in 1998, the Aston Martin Vanquish represented the next step in the marque’s lineup of V12 powered grand touring coupes. Put into production in 2001, the Vanquish 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 Vanquish packed the luxury and speed it promised in James Bond’s Die Another Day and other screen appearances.
In 2004, the Vanquish 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 Vanquish line temporarily ended July 19, 2007 with the planned closing of the brand’s Newport Pagnell production facility.
In 2012, a new generation of the Vanquish emerged, much changed from its predecessor and featuring several design cues from the exclusive One-77. The new Vanquish rode on a lighter aluminum and carbon composite monocoque and aluminum subframe, improving weight and performance. In addition to these structural changes, the Vanquish’s V12 retained its displacement, but increased its output to 565 hp. Aesthetically, the new Vanquish features a derivative of the classic Aston Martin grille, with a more streamlined profile approach than its predecessor.
In 2013, the Aston Martin Vanquish 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.
