The Ultimate Grand Tourer

AM11 Engine

 

The advanced AM11 engine is the most powerful Aston Martin GT 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.

Vanquish sees AM11 tuned to its most potent specification, it’s the ultimate heart for our ultimate GT.

Unique Engine
Technology

 

Impressive figures are backed by an advanced development story. Produced at our bespoke engine facility in Cologne, our engineers worked tirelessly to create an engine which mated seamlessly to the character and performance our development team requested. The process delivered clear technical advances. The debut of dual variable valve timing. Enlarged throttle bodies. Fully machined combustion chambers and a ‘big wing’ intake manifold.

A Revolutionary Core...


Our world-renowned VH architecture was specifically evolved for Vanquish – with three-quarters of all components new to Aston Martin. This Gen4 technology delivers outstanding strength and a 25% increase in stiffness over DBS. But that’s not all, we increased strength and rigidity but reduced weight. Scarcely believable, but Vanquish is lighter than DBS.


A Lightweight
Skin

The bonded aluminium VH architecture includes carbon fibre components. More impressively, every body panel is manufactured from aerospace standard carbon fibre. The perfect material for structure, carbon fibre is also perfect for form. Unbroken exterior surfaces were created, essential to the beauty and proportion of Vanquish.

Perfectly Poised


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. Three exceptional numbers. Here’s another two – 50:50. Vanquish achieves a perfect weight distribution.

Power Mated
to Agility


The AM11 engine drives through a fully automatic and mid-rear mounted Touchtronic 2 six-speed gearbox. Offering a fully interactive and instantly responsive manual change with just a paddle click. The Touchtronic 2 gearbox is also lighter than other transmission types such as a dual-clutch gearbox and can deliver everything from quiet refinement to absolute control.

Instant Power Access


The New Vanquish includes launch control - an Aston Martin first. The same technology used in our class-leading motorsport development brought for the first time to the road. Optimum takeoff is achieved by balancing throttle, transmission, traction aids and damping to harness the full power of Vanquish even from a standing start.



Command &
Control


Normal, Sport, Track. Three distinct modes 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.

Intensively Tested

Vanquish has endured more testing than any Aston Martin ever created. More than 5,000km of high-speed durability tests in Italy. Intense handling work at Aston Martin’s custom-built Nürburgring centre. Hot weather and altitude extremes in Spain. Cold weather testing on Swedish ice fields. We created Vanquish with one goal in mind, produce the most technically advanced Aston Martin in history – our testing confirms it.
