2017 Aston Martin Vanquish is an automobile of the British brand Aston Martin. The 2017 Aston Martin V12 Vanquish is presented for the first time at the Geneva International Motor Show. On 23 September 2004, at the Paris Motor Show, the Vanquish S was presented with, among other things, a more powerful engine, improved behavior and subtle aesthetic retouching.
The latest model, 2017 Aston Martin Vanquish is equipped with a vehicle capable of competing with the most successful GTs on the market. Indeed, even if the Aston Martin V8 or Vantage had the necessary performance, their technology was outdated. The Vanquish must mix the best of both, a cutting edge technique in a craft vehicle built in Newport Pagnell. At that time it was the flagship of the brand, but also the latest “handmade” model produced at the Newport Pagnell factory. This model replaces the Virage in the traditional workshops of the brand. This is why the production will be limited to 300 copies per year, coupe or coupé versions 2 + 2 combined. However, the workshops have been extensively modernized in order to guarantee a high level of quality.
2017 Aston Martin Vanquish Design
The line was born under the pencil of Ian Callum, “dad” of the DB7 and the Project Vantage (1998) to which the Vanquish owes the essential. The resemblance to the DB7 is striking, but the Vanquish seems much more powerful, where the DB7 is elegant and racy. We naturally find the traditional grille, as well as the scoops of air on the front wings. With this design, it is clearly the lineage of the DB4, DB5, and DB6 which is highlighted, while the line of DBS, V8 or Virage is discarded. The rear more massive than that of the DB7 translates the power of the machine, well camped on its 19 “wheels, Yokohama AVS Sport 255/40 ZR19 front and 285/45 ZR19 rear ( With continuous pressure control.) The brake discs are ventilated and perforated with a diameter of 355 mm at the front and 330 mm at the rear.
2017 Aston Martin Vanquish Interior
Inside, the atmosphere and smell of leather are reminiscent of the British tradition in spite of a touch of modernity, replacing walnut with aluminum. The Vanquish thus affirms its sportiness. The future buyer can also choose his body color, Connolly leather, and interior trim as well as the Wilton carpet. The Vanquish was available in version 2 + 2 against the sum of 7 000€.
2017 Aston Martin Vanquish Technology
A huge Start Engine button makes the V12 roar. The Aston Martin sequential gearbox is very well integrated, as the gear lever gives way to 4 buttons: P (Park), R (Reverse), N (Neutral), D (Drive). The Vanquish is based on an all-new aluminum and carbon fiber chassis, providing exceptional rigidity, robustness and safety. As before, all body panels are entirely hand-crafted.
With the Vanquish, Aston Martin abandons the V8 and acquires a range entirely composed of V12 models. With a cylinder capacity of 6.0 l, this is an evolution of the V12 of the DB7 Vantage, which develops 466 hp. Developed in collaboration with Cosworth Racing and mounted by hand, this atmospheric engine is associated with a 6-speed manual transmission sequentially controlled on the steering wheel. The accelerator is electronic (drive-by-wire).
The transmission, developed by Magneti-Marelli and Ford, allows rapid changes, as well as automatic operation. Like the Project Vantage, the V12 Vanquish is constructed of the most modern materials, combining aluminum with carbon fiber and other composite materials. The aerodynamics are neat, with in particular a flat base creating a ground effect, and ensuring a better support at high speeds. Despite the use of lightweight materials, the Vanquish is heavy and its performance is barely superior to that of the DB7 Vantage. But, its majestic road behavior is far superior, as well as the level of safety. The carbon shell ensures a very rigid survival cell.
2017 Aston Martin Vanquish S
On November 15, 2016, a performance-enhanced version called Vanquish S was presented at the LA Auto Show. It differs externally with new front and rear spoilers of the standard model. The 5.9-liter V12 now delivers 444 kW (603 hp) and accelerates both Coupé and Volante in 3.5 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h. Furthermore, the chassis and the 8-speed automatic have been reworked.
The engine gains 62 horsepower to 528 hp and torque increases to 577 Nm with new cylinder heads, redesigned combustion chambers to improve gas flow, new injectors, and new engine mapping. The sound of the V12 stainless steel exhaust is even more powerful and demonstratively vocalizes. Performance improved from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds, more than 322 km/h in peak, making it the fastest Aston Martin in history, At the arrival of the V12 Vantage S on May 29, 2013.
The bridge ratio was shortened, the chassis was also revised, the front brake discs increased to 378 mm, the suspension was firmer, the body height was lowered by 5 mm and the steering was 20% more direct. Aerodynamics is up compared to the 2017 Aston Martin V12 Vanquish with a Cx of 0.32 instead of 0.33. The rear axle is equipped with a limited slip differential and a traction control.
