The next-generation Aston Martin Vanquish will take the form of a mid-engined supercar and while it is bound to be impressive, it will lack one thing that its predecessor had; a naturally-aspirated V12. That’s what makes ‘older’ models like these so desirable.
The following 2018 Vanquish S has been listed up for sale through Bring a Trailer and has only been driven 10,000 miles (16,093 km) since new. It is being sold with a copy of the original window sticker, a clean Carfax report, a clean Texas title, and all the original literature and accessories. The British icon has also been equipped with a plethora of options.
Adorning the exterior of the car is a shade dubbed China Grey. It also sports a carbon fiber roof, carbon wing mirrors, and carbon vents on the hood while contrasting the China Grey paint are a number of bright blue accents. Further adding to the car’s visual appeal are five-spoke 20-inch forged alloy wheels wrapped in 255/35 front and 305/30 rear Pirelli P Zero tires.
The interior is just as gorgeous as the exterior and has Phantom Grey ‘Bridge of Weir’ leather upholstery sporting an optional Fliograph-quilted pattern on the seats, headliner, and door panels. While it would be nice to see a little bit of color injected into the cabin, perhaps including some blue accents, it certainly looks like a nice place to sit thanks to the various carbon fiber parts, the Shadow Bronze Jewelry Pack, and the Bang & Olufsen BeoSound system.
As mentioned, the Vanquish S sports a naturally-aspirated 5.9-liter V12 pumping out 580 hp and 465 lb-ft (630 Nm). Drive is sent through the rear wheels courtesy of an eight-speed automatic transmission. The window sticker reveals this car had a sticker price of $339,991 when it was new, over $50,000 of which are options.
