Aston Martin’s Gaydon headquarters has been quite busy of late — DB11 is making its way to customers, development is continuing on the AM-RB 001 hypercar, and in Spring of 2017, the new Vanquish S will be making its way onto U.S. roads just in time for the Summer driving season.
In addition to the ‘S’ designation, this second-generation flagship vehicle receives an updated aero kit featuring exposed carbon fiber, forged 5-spoke diamond turned wheels, quad exhaust outlets, and a freer-breathing 6.0-liter V12 engine that now produces 580 horsepower.
Drivers will find themselves surrounded with premium materials like ‘Filograph’ quilted leather, Satin Chopped Carbon Fibre accents, and Bridge of Weir Caithness leather. Iridium hardware, an Alcantara headliner, and Vanquish S embroidery add finishing touches to an incredibly luxurious interior.
Dr. Andy Palmer, Aston Martin President & CEO said: “From the moment the original Vanquish was launched it became a modern icon. It propelled Aston Martin from an era of hand-built cars to one where craftsmanship and technology combined to create a new kind of great British GT.”
“In its second generation the Vanquish maintained that momentum with huge engineering advances such as its all-carbon fibre bodywork and compelling, contemporary styling. Now, the Vanquish S takes things a step further, confidently asserting itself within the Aston Martin range and distinguishing itself from the new DB11. A spectacular machine in every sense, the Vanquish S is a magnificent addition to our range.”
Vanquish S will be available in Coupe and Volante models, and carries a starting MSRP of $294,950.
