For Sale: Aston Martin Vanquish S

Submitted by on September 9, 2014

aston martin vanquish sAston Martin’s V12 Vanquish is one of the most superbly designed front-engine GT cars of all time. The Aston Martin Vanquish S is even more special.

The Vanquish is a credit to its creator, Ian Callum, who served as design director for both Aston Martin and Jaguar. And a credit to Aston’s management, engineering, and development teams, who so faithfully brought Callum’s lines and curves from drawing board to reality. The Vanquish purposely recalls Aston’s DB4 GT Zagato of the early ’60s, and there’s a bit of Ferrari Daytona in there, too. But it’s by no means a copy of anything.


The Vanquish S was purposeful yet beautiful, brutally fast yet sumptuously comfortable, and designed to be the ultimate grand tourer.

The standard Vanquish was launched in 2001, and heralded the modern rebirth of Aston Martin. It was the stunning flagship the maker needed, with its looks, pace and power, it became one of the world’s most desirable cars and so it was no surprise that James Bond took delivery of his slightly modified Vanquish, a year later.


The S took things to the next level when it made its debut at the 2004 Paris Motor Show, with a host of performance upgrades; the mighty all-alloy quad cam V12 engine was enhanced with new cylinder heads, revised engine mapping and updated fuel injectors, raising power from 460bhp to 520bhp. The sports suspension, steering and braking package that was optional on the conventional car was also fitted as standard. It included stiffer springs and dampers, as well as shorter steering arms for quicker response. The Vanquish holds on the honour of being the last model to be built at the famous Newport Pagnell factory, and fact which adds to the significance of the model in Aston Martin history.


Just 1,086 Vanquish S cars were produced with only 375 being RHD. Being the last of the hand assembled cars at the historic factory of Newport Pagnell, the Vanquish S has already being earmarked as the next future classic from Aston Martin, following in the steps of the DB5.


This MY2005 Vanquish S car is an extremely high specification and was supplied with the optional 2+2 configuration, the original order specified that the car was painted in the classic colour combination of Meteorite Silver with black hide and Alcantara roof lining, absolutely timeless. This stunning combination also benefits from, Platinum finish steering wheel, diamond cut 19” special order alloy wheels, correct factory Yokohama new tyres, black painted brake calipers, heated seats and screen, 1200w Linn audio system with 6 disc changer, and chrome door handles, whilst other options include rear parking sensors, Alarm and immobiliser, Auto dimming rear view mirror, Battery conditioner and disconnect switch, Driver and passenger front airbags, Traction Control System, Trip computer, Tyre pressure monitoring, AM Umbrella and holder, Ventilated, grooved floating disc brakes with ABS, Wheel Slip Protection Satellite Navigation, power mirrors and factory ipod connectivity.


Having had just two owners from new this Vanquish S is fresh from a major service at Trivett Aston Martin Sydney which included new clutch assembly, and new discs and pads all around and is now situated in our showroom, ready to be used and enjoyed immediately.


This extremely low mileage and excellent specification Vanquish S with impeccable works service history, is an opportunity not to be missed. Factory extended AM warranty is available for this car at either 12 or 24 months through the Australian Aston Martin Dealership as part of their heritage service.
