In 2016 Aston Martin re-imagined its Super GT to create Vanquish S, with sharper styling, greater potency and increased athleticism compared to the original.
In the second generation Vanquish’s evolution to S specification, careful attention was paid to the engine, chassis and aerodynamics to create a driving experience more thrilling, with even greater performance capabilities.
Vanquish S featured a new aerodynamic focused design, with a carbon fibre 2x2 twill front splitter and rear diffuser, improving high speed stability and accentuating exterior styling. It's Touchtronic III ZF eight-speed automatic transmission delivered astounding performance and shift speed, allowing shifting in 130 milliseconds.
Central to Vanqiush S is the naturally-aspirated 6.0 litre V12 engine, which now produces up to 600PS (up from 573PS) and enjoyed sensational throttle response, thanks to a revised, freer-breathing intake system. These larger volume inlet manifolds allowed a greater volume of air to flow into the engine at high revs, creating a relentless power delivery and a stronger feel all the way to the redline.
