THE BEST ASTON MARTIN EVER
100 years of Aston Martin. 100 years of producing the most beautiful and desirable cars in the world. We knew our centenary demanded something special. Our mission was to produce the greatest Aston Martin in history, the car to lead us into our second 100 years - a new flagship. We did it. With the most advanced engineering, the most beautiful design and the finest materials, we created the best Aston Martin ever. We created Vanquish.
THEIR GREATEST ENGINE
Their greatest car had to have our greatest engine. Introducing the New AM11 Gen4 V12 - the most powerful production engine in Aston Martin history. 573 PS. 620 Nm of torque. 0-62mph in 4.1 secs. Vanquish has the greatest performance numbers ever reached in an Aston Martin, it’s not a Grand Tourer, it’s a Super Grand Tourer.
REVOLUTIONARY STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING
Clothing an engine of such immense power required a body of phenomenal rigidity and razor-sharp agility. There was only one material we could use to achieve this level of performance – aerospace engineered carbon-fibre.
We didn’t compromise. Every body-panel is constructed from the most advanced carbon available, producing a staggering strength-to-weight ratio and ensuring Vanquish is the pinnacle of a century of engineering expertise.
TECHNOLOGICALLY  ADVANCED
Technologically advanced on the outside, Vanquish is as advanced on the inside. An all-new interior includes a state-of-the-art infotainment system enabling efficient and easy control of the cabin environment. Hand-crafted capacitive glass buttons now include illumination and revolutionary ‘haptic feedback’. Vanquish takes driver and passenger usability to new heights.







NEW LIGHTWEIGHT SEATS
Our Ultimate Grand Tourer now comes with the ultimate Aston Martin lightweight seat, reducing weight by 17kg. Specially developed for driver and passenger rigidity, lateral support, and sporting performance, an advanced composite structure includes both Kevlar® and carbon-fibre. With an exposed carbon-fibre weave on the rear and exquisite hand-trimmed leather and alcantara on specially designed front panels, the new lightweight Vanquish seats combine sports tailoring with sports performance.
LUXURY REDEFINED. OUR FINEST INTERIOR
This is the most luxurious interior we’ve ever produced. A unique Vanquish design combines the widest choice of materials and finishes ever created for a GT. All new ergonomic interior environment groupings and carbon fibre interior finishes. Contrasting seat accent colours and unique hour-glass stitching.
A million stitches go into every Vanquish, along with 100 years of history
THE DEBUT OF AM11
The all-new AM11 engine is the most powerful Aston Martin production engine ever created. Performance benefits compared to our previous flagship are clear; 63 more PS, a further 50Nm of torque, an acceleration time of just 4.1 secs.
Vanquish sees AM11 tuned to its most potent specification, it’s the ultimate heart for our ultimate GT.
VANQUISH IN MOTION
The first official dynamic footage of the Aston Martin Vanquish is revealed in this exclusive new film. Captured on location in Italy with a striking 'Hammerhead Silver' model, this film explores the power, beauty and soul of our new flagship.
