The unique features of the second generation Vanquish took the design ethos of Aston Martin into a new generation. The all-new exterior form was influenced by the One-77 supercar, seeing each carbon-fibre body panel take a taut, aggressive form.

Uniquely Formed

Every external panel on Vanquish was made from aerospace standard carbon-fibre, essential in crafting the pure surfaces and maintaining the precision used to create such a beautiful design. This made the body 25% lighter than DBS.

Produced at Aston Martin's bespoke engine facility in Cologne, engineers worked tirelessly to create an engine worthy of a new flagship model. 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.

New Heights of Performance

The revolutionary Carbon Ceramic Matrix braking technology reduced brake fade and improved heat dissipation. Improving handling and driver feel this silicon-injected carbon fibre was an incredible 12kg lighter than equivalent steel discs. Vanquish also included specifically developed tyres.
