The existing Vanquish was already great. Instead of a complete re-think, the Aston Martin Vanquish S makes several subtle tweaks to up the performance of the already powerful GT. The 6.0L V12 gets a new intake system, boosting its output from 565 to 592 hp, and the re-calibrated eight-speed transmission delivers faster shifts and a more refined in-town experience. The suspension has likewise been updated for more precise control in sport modes, and the aerodynamics have been plussed with a front splitter and rear diffuser crafted from exposed carbon fiber. The finished package is a refined yet exhilarating tourer that’s as comfortable on cross-country drives as it is on twisty mountain roads.
