Aston Martin VanquishEdward Green ▼ |
Unique features take the design of Aston Martin into a new generation. An all-new exterior form sees each carbon-fibre body panel take a very fluid form. Every external panel is made from aerospace standard carbon-fibre. Essential in creating the pure surfaces and maintaining the precision used to create such a beautiful design. Carbon-fibre also offers immense structural benefits such as creating a lighter body which is 25% lighter than DBS. That, no doubt, enables even better performance for the new Aston.
Vanquish isn't just constructed from carbon-fibre, it's also styled with it. A continuous ring of exposed 2x2 twill weave sees the splitter, light-catching side skirts and rear diffuser blend together to plant the car visually. We don't stop there. We also measure and position the material exactly so the subtle weave flows precisely to accentuate the car's elegance. With an exposed carbon-fibre roof, door handles and wing mirrors also optional, Vanquish is cloaked in a suit of carbon.
Hollow aluminium produces a front chassis 13% lighter than DBS. An all-new engine bay lowers engine position by 19mm. Use of carbon fibre positions 85% of weight within the wheelbase. With 50:50 Vanquish achieves a perfect weight distribution. The Aston Martin story is told by three stunning numbers: 37mm more legroom, 60% more boot space, and 140% more interior space than DBS. Vanquish isn't just the greatest Grand Tourer we've ever built, it's also the grandest.
Vanquish isn't personalised, it's personal. Every Vanquish is unique with and excellent array of choice with no compromise on materials. Only the finest glass, metal, the most precise carbon-fibre weave, and the most supple leather.
The all-new AM11 engine is the most powerful Aston Martin production engine ever created. Performance benefits compared to our previous flagship are clear; 63 more PS, a further 50Nm of torque, an acceleration time of just 4.1 secs. Three are distinct modes, Normal, Sport, Track, for the driver to tailor their driving experience with no loss of control or feel. Broadening the character of Vanquish from cruising GT in Normal mode, to assertive sports car in Sport and Track modes. ■
