Aston Martin Vanquish

The Aston Martin Vanquish was the English coach builder's GT offering during the hay day of the Ford era and made an on screen cameo in the James Bond film Die Another Day. The original 2001 V12 Vanquish was powered by the venerable 6.0 Liter double Duratec built by Cosworth and was offered in both standard and S trims. The regular twelve cylinder made 453 HP and 400 lb.-ft. of torque going from 0 to 60 MPH in 4.4 seconds and reaching a top speed of 196 MPH. The Vanquish S made 514 HP and took four seconds flat to get to 60 MPH and was good for 204 MPH. When the full sized super car met the end of the road, Aston Martin filled its slot with the top of the line DBS.

The Aston Martin Vanquish made its official entry to the grand tourer market as a replacement for the aging Virage in 2001. Designed by Ian Callum, the man who also penned the gorgeous Jaguar F-Type, the Vanquish was launched with a 5.9-liter V-12 rated at 450 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. Production of the first-gen model ended in 2007, when the DBS rolled out as a replacement. Based on the DBR9 race car, the DBS featured the same engine, but output was increased to 510 horses and 420 pound-feet. The Vanquish name returned for the 2012 model year as an evolution of the DBS. Inspired by the exclusive One-77 inside and out, the new Vanquish kept the company’s proven 5.9-liter V-12, now squeezing no less than 565 ponies and 457 pound-feet. Going into 2015, the Vanquish remains basically unchanged inside and out, but receives an extensive drivetrain upgrade that includes a brand-new autobox and minor engine tweaks.

Although output gains are slight, the coupe’s performance has increased dramatically, as the 2015 Vanquish ascends into a league reserved for sports cars that can return three-second 0-to-60 sprints. How quick is the updated Vanquish and what’s new for the 2015 model year? Read on to find out.

UPDATE 02/15/2013: Aston Martin has unveiled yet another cool video for its latest Vanquish supercar, this time presenting the engineering behind this incredible super GT. Enjoy!

Updated 08/06/2014: Aston Martin unveiled details on the 2015 Vanquish which will be put on sale in the third quarter of 2014. The main addition for 2015 model year is a newly developed Touchtronic III eight-speed automatic transmission. Details after the jump.
