Aston Martin Vanguish – Overview
The Aston Martin Vanquish is one of the loveliest things on four wheels and the British brand's grandest grand tourer. Its powerful appearance is available in coupe or convertible which Aston calls Volante and every Vanquish features a ferocious and sonorous V-12 engine that compares with its rivals Ferrari 812 Superfast, Lamborghini Aventador and McLaren 570S.
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 with the debut of dual variable valve timing, enlarged throttle bodies, fully machined combustion chambers and a ‘big wing’ intake manifold.
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 and included specifically developed tyres.
