The Aston Martin Vanquish is a grand tourer introduced by British luxury automobile manufacturer Aston Martin in 2001 as a successor to the Aston Martin Vantage (1993).

The first-generation of the “V12 Vanquish,” designed by Ian Callum and unveiled at the 2001 Geneva Motor Show, was produced from 2001 to 2007 as the pinnacle of the marque. The prototype, known as “Project Vantage” and the first Aston Martin design wholly styled by Callum, was built by the Ford Motor Company with Indian craftsman Dilip Chhabria to display the company’s vision for a future supercar to carry the Aston banner after the demise of the Virage-based Vantage. The V12 Vanquish featured a carbon fiber and alloy construction, Aston’s most powerful V12 engine, and a design that evoked the muscular heritage of other flagship Astons. A specially modified V12 Vanquish was driven by James Bond in the 2002 film Die Another Day. In 2004, a version of the first-generation car named “V12 Vanquish S” was introduced featuring a more highly tuned engine and a more track-oriented ride and handling. The V12 Vanquish was indirectly replaced by the DBS after 2007.

A second-generation “Vanquish” was introduced in 2012, based on the Gaydon VH architecture, followed in 2017 by a “Vanquish S” with a more powerful engine and improved aerodynamics. The second-generation Vanquish was succeeded by the DBS Superleggera in 2018.

The Aston Martin V12 Vanquish was styled by Ian Callum and drew inspiration from the DB-4 Zagato – projecting a more aggressive presence than Callum’s DB7 Vantage. The production car closely resembled the Project Vantage Concept’ which debuted with a V12 engine at the North American International Auto Show in January 1998. Underneath, the car featured a very strong carbon fibre/aluminium composite chassis, an advanced independent suspension, and a tuned 5,935 cc (5.9 L; 362.2 cu in) V12 engine. It was available in 2+0 and 2+2 seating configurations and came only in a coupé body style. The V12 Vanquish was the fastest production Aston Martin in terms of top speed ever produced up to that time (V-600 and LeMans versions of the earlier Vantage had engines modified by Works Service after production and delivery) and the model remained the most powerful Aston Martin in the range throughout its life.

The naturally aspirated 60° DOHC 4 valves per cylinder V12 engine with a bore x stroke of 89 mm × 79.5 mm (3.50 in × 3.13 in) has a power output of 466 PS (343 kW; 460 hp) at 6,500 rpm and 400 lb⋅ft (542 N⋅m) of torque at 5,000 rpm.[3] It is controlled by a drive-by-wire throttle and driven by a 6-speed Electrohydraulic manual transmission. The Vanquish model debuted with 355 mm (14.0 inches) drilled and ventilated disc brakes with four-pot calipers, ABS, with electronic brake distribution. The interior featured full instrumentation, advanced electronics, and rich leathers with metallic details – the latter an intentional move away from the wood trim seen in the DB-7.

The first-generation V12 Vanquish was generally very well received by the motoring press receiving near universal praise for its powertrain, chassis, advanced engineering and design. Described as “The ultimate Grand Tourer” by Road & Track magazine , the V12 Vanquish and V12 Vanquish S represented Aston’s entry into the top tier GT market – a “no excuses” technological wonder meant to show that Aston Martin was back at the top of its game. With a top speed over 190 mph and 0-60 times in the mid-4s there was no question about capability, and after experiencing it in action Car & Driver described it as “…worthy of the marque’s heritage and a serious alternative to the top Ferrari.”
