The quintessential Aston. The Vanquish S was purposeful yet beautiful, brutally fast yet sumptuously comfortable, and designed to be the ultimate grand tourer. The standard Vanquish was launched in 2001, and heralded the modern rebirth of Aston Martin. It was the stunning flagship the maker needed, designed by Ian Callum with its looks, pace and power, it became one of the world's most desirable cars and so it was no surprise that James Bond took delivery of his slightly modified Vanquish, a year later.
The S took things to the next level when it made its debut at the 2004 Paris Motor Show, with a host of performance upgrades; the mighty all-alloy V12 engine was enhanced with new cylinder heads, revised engine mapping and updated fuel injectors, raising power from 460bhp to 520bhp. The sports suspension, steering and braking package that was optional on the conventional car was also fitted as standard. It included stiffer springs and dampers, as well as shorter steering arms for quicker response. The Vanquish holds on the honour of being the last model to be built at the famous Newport Pagnell factory, and fact which adds to the significance of the model in Aston Martin history.
This example was supplied new to its first owner in May 2005 and has since covered less than 4,000 miles since. The car is an extremely high specification and was supplied with the optional 2+2 configuration, the original order specified that the car was painted in the Ferrari Colour of Grigio Titanio and the trim was to be finished in two-tone blue. The upper dash, outer seats and carpets are Caspian blue with the inner seats and lower dash finished in the slightly lighter Arctic blue. This stunning combination also benefits from quilted head lining, Platinum finish wheel, Silver calipers, and chrome door handles, whilst other options include rear parking sensors, Satellite Navigation, power mirrors and a fitted telephone system. Having had just two owners from new this Vanquish S is fresh from a major service at Desmond Smail and is now situated in our Chorleywood showrooms, ready to be used and enjoyed immediately. This extremely low mileage and excellent specification Vanquish S is an opportunity not to be missed.
