Vanquish Options & Upgrades

Developed from the 1998 Project Vantage concept car, the V12 Vanquish entered production in 2001. The Vanquish marked a step forward for Aston Martin engineering as the car combined a bonded aluminium chassis with the traditional craftsmanship Aston Martins are renowned for.  V12 Vanquish was also the last car to be produced at the Newport Pagnell site, meaning many of the staff who worked on the car as new are still present within our workforce, a level of expertise and passion unmatched at any other facility.

Some of the options, accessories and upgrades we offer on V12 Vanquish can be found below.

Manual Conversion

The V12 Vanquish Transmission Conversion has been especially designed to enhance driving experience by giving you more choice. Now you can select a conventional gear-change system for a more hands-on traditional drive.

The Vanquish has many distinctive features including the highly individual 'paddle' gear-change system. We are aware, however, that some drivers prefer a traditional gear lever transmission. In response, an expert team of technicians from Works Service collaborated closely with the engineering team at Aston Martin's Gaydon HQ to design and build a conventional system that is robust, reliable and, above all, right for the Vanquish.

Manual Conversion (cont.)

The conversion is compatible with all Vanquish models. The dashboard of models up to and including the 2005 model will be upgraded to the 2005 Vanquish S specification, and will include leather trim that matches your existing interior scheme. The 2006 Vanquish will be fitted with a reconfigured dashboard.

Alterations to the dashboard and the installation of the gear lever will be carried out to the highest Aston Martin standards. Leather trim will be matched to your existing interior, and the gear lever is ergonomically designed for comfort and performance.

iPod & USB Upgrades

If you own an earlier model, or a 2006 or 2007 Vanquish, Works Service offer an iPod® retro-fit service that connects your music collection to the car's in-built audio system - meaning you can enjoy the best quality sound and your painstakingly compiled play-lists at the same time. Even better, the work takes just one day.

We also offer digital link solutions for earlier Vanquish and DB7 models.


We offer a range of accessories for the Vanquish. These include Car Covers with the option of the Aston Martin Works Service logo embroidered and also custom designed luggage suitable for the Vanquish. The four-piece luggage set consists of a Large Holdall, Small Holdall, Garment Bag, and Beauty Case.
