Aston Martin V12 Vanquish First Generation (2001-2007)

Introduced to Aston Martin enthusiasts in 2001 as the successor to the Aston Martin Vantage, the Aston Martin Vanquish price started at around $230,000 MSRP. For the money, Palm Beach Gardens drivers received one of the fastest cars on the road today. The Vanquish featured a V12 engine with 460 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque on tap. Paired with a lightweight carbon fiber backbone, the Vanquish offered exceptionally swift acceleration and intimate handling. With a 0-60 MPH time of under 5 seconds and a top speed of 190 MPH. Despite its performance, standard ventilated disc brakes had no problem quickly and smoothly bringing the Vanquish to a halt. Would we expect any less of the vehicle that starred in the 2002 James Bond film Die Another Day

In 2004,the Aston Martin V12 Vanquish S trim was introduced and sold as an alternative upgrade to the original Vanquish. This model increased horsepower to 520 hp, top speed to 200 MPH, revamped the exterior, and made available an optional SPORTS DYNAMIC PACKAGE that stiffened up the suspension for firmer handling.

Aston Martin Vanquish Second Generation (2012-2018) 

The Aston Martin Vanquish was reintroduced in 2012 after a 5-year retirement. It featured an all carbon fiber body, further reducing weight and drag. Furthermore, the standard Vanquish featured more power, implementing an AM28 engine that achieved 565 hp, 0-62 MPH in just 4.1 seconds, and a top speed of 184 MPH. 

The new generation also featured an overhauled Aston Martin Vanquish interior. The cabin was now upholstered in hand-stitched Alcántara leather, featured a new infotainment console, and was available as a both 2-seater and 2+2-seater. 

In 2014, the brand upgraded the Vanquish with an AM29 engine that was slightly more powerful, with 568 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque, a top speed of 201 MPH, and a new 0-60 MPH time of 3.6 seconds. 

Finally, the brand introduced two additional trims of the Vanquish. In 2013, it released the Vanquish Volante, which featured a much bigger boot, a stiffer suspension, and upgraded performance brakes. In 2017, the S trim was reintroduced and bumped hp up to 595, 0-62 MPH times to 3.5 seconds, and a top speed of 201 MPH.
