Aston Martin Vanquish S gets harder, better, faster

Now in its next generation, the Aston Martin Vanquish has ultimately earned a red “S” badge. That means a arcane revamp of the Vanquish’s shape, speed, discontinuation, and interior specification to separate the new coupe from both the untimely model and the new hotness, the incoming DB11.

A meaner fa fascia and a racy rear diffuser, both in exposed carbon fiber, shorten frontal lift. The new black quad squander pipes tucked into triangular cutouts right-minded look mean. For those who want to go accessory, the already considerable option sheet gets new elements like carbon-fiber locomotive louvers and a new diamond-turned wheel contrive. Aston Martin also talks up an array of “imposing painted graphics packs,” which reasonable lean toward the subtle sky blue accents in the car pictured on as opposed to a purple and yellow Indy Rate Car package.

The 6.0-liter V12 adds 12 horsepower for a total number of 580. Larger inlet manifolds and a freer-breathing intake award finer throttle response for an anxious legal foot. The eight-speed Touchtronic III gearbox adds delicacy at the same time as it swaps cogs more swiftly than before. Changes made from one end to the other the suspension, from spring rates to damper internals, should do the jape when driving calls for more hammer than velvet.

Not that you have need of to drive anywhere in the Vanquish S to enjoy it fully, since the cockpit is a recompense unto itself. Chopped carbon fiber drenched in a satin burnish comprises the waterfall center console, in costly-tech brutalist contrast to the new “Filograph” quilted seats in Bond of Weir leather. One unsubtle aspect of the Vanquish S: the $294,950 fee for the coupe, and a cool $312,950 for the Volante. Deliveries start in December.
