Aston Martin Vanquish: The One-77 Inspired DBS Vanquisher

Aston Martin Vanquish

When we talk of an Aston Martin we are talking of one of the most beautiful cars available, if not the most beautiful. Basically, Aston Martin’s cars all look the same, and it will take the keenest eye to distinguish one from the other. The Aston Martin Vanquish looks inspired by the One-77, where they have added newer features and embraced carbon fiber.

The History

The grand touring Vanquish first reared its bonnet in 2001, where it replaced the Virage to much aplomb. Having vanquished the Virage the car featured as the official car for the 007 movie Die Another Day. Production of the car lasted four years 2001-2005. The Vanquish S was introduced in 2004 as an upgrade, followed by the V12. These two upgrades lasted until the DBS came into the market in 2007. DBS lasted until 2012 where it was replaced by the current Vanquish. The Aston Martin Vanquish was released as the flagship car of Aston Martin to commemorate their 2013 centenary celebrations. In the words of its official website this is the “ultimate Aston Martin.” Read More

What’s In A Name

The irony of calling your smallest car vantage, well I guess the guys at Aston Martin had their legitimate reasons. The Vantage name was used for high performing GT variants of former models. Of worthy note is the Virage of the 1990s. The Aston Martin Vantage, however got its own model that currently reigns today. The sports car competes in the same space as that of the Porsche 911. However, it manages to feature as 8th in the Car and Driver list of Top Premium Sports Cars, which is topped by the Porsche 911. Read More
