A total of 1,086 Vanquish S models were manufactured between 2005 and 2007 and the car on sale here is one of the last cars produced with the more desirable revised dashboard with big screen sat nav. The Vanquish S debuted at the 2004 Paris Motor Show and offered a power increase from 460bhp to 520bhp, other changes included new wheels, a slightly different nose shape, new raised boot lid with a larger integrated spoiler and the addition of a small front splitter for aerodynamic reasons which help the Vanquish S boast an improved drag coefficient. The car also featured an optional Sports Dynamic Package which incorporated sportier suspension, steering and larger brakes than the slandered V12 Vanquish. With a top speed exceeding 200mph, the Vanquish S was, at the time, the fastest Aston Martin ever produced.
This Vanquish S was delivered new to the USA on 31st March 2006, it had two owners before being repatriated to the UK in October 2016 by our vendor. The car was last serviced at Aston Martin Works, Newport Pagnell at 29,220 miles and is accompanied by an MoT test certificate valid until March 2020. It also comes with a Newport Pagnell V12 Vanquish build log and Aston Martin Heritage Trust - Vehicle Heritage Certificate. The car is finished in the only colour scheme to have with Onyx Black metallic paintwork and Obsidian Black interior, quilted headlining and oyster suede/Alcantara seat inserts. The car is presented with all the original equipment which includes two keys and even the boot mounted umbrella. This is truly a collectors example of an achingly beautiful Vanquish with performance to match.
