Aston Martin is one of the rare car makers that explicitly takes care of the design of their cars. They don’t need a special introduction as they are easily recognized across the globe with their beautiful styling, luxury interior, and powerful engines. British car maker continues to upgrade its second generation Vanquish. In addition to new DB11, this GT (Grand Tourer) will arrive with a red “S” badge. This means a number of things. 2017 Aston Martin Vanquish S has a meaner design, higher engine output, and retuned suspension. When you think that something’s reached its perfection, this manufacturer proves you wrong. Since the hype for new DB11 isn’t over, British with this move wants us to not forget that this model is still alive.
2017 Aston Martin Vanquish S – Stunning Design
The design of the body of new Aston Martin Vanquish S is a masterpiece. They barely touched it for the S model, and we don’t mind at all. The difference between current one and Vanquish S comes with revised front splitter and rear diffuser. Also, the lower part of the grille has honeycomb mesh. Aston Martin says that they achieved a meaningful reduction in front lift. There are two more changes, and they come with dual exhaust pipe system and carbon-fiber hood louvers. Although at first, this doesn’t seem like much, they managed to further increase engine output. To round the design of new model car maker installed five-spoke 20-inch diamond-turned wheels.
2017 Aston Martin Vanquish S – Luxury Interior
As for the interior, we shouldn’t bother wasting words. When you enter the interior it’s like walking into another dimension. Yes, you have leather upholstery in every luxury car and that is nice. But Aston Martin Vanquish S has Filograph quilted leather upholstery, the Satin Chopped Carbon Fiber finish for the center stack, or Sumptuous Bridge of Weir Caithness leather. Not every luxury car has this details. To fulfill the design of interior designers embodied Vanquish S on the headrests. The whole interior has fluent lines with no sharp corners.
2017 Aston Martin Vanquish S – Increased Engine Output
The powertrain remains the same. Yes, it’s the 5.9-liter V12 engine which in Vanquish produces 568 horsepower. But thanks to the bigger air intakes and revised exhaust pipes carmaker claims that the total output is almost 600 horsepower. For UK and EU number is 595, and for U.S. the exact number is 580 horsepower. The car maker ditched six-speed auto gearbox back in 2012 in favor of new eight-speed Touchtronic III automatic transmission. They refined shifting quality. Not only that but with a bigger air intake at high revs, power response is much quicker. In a way, that as Aston Martin claims that new model will reach 0-60 time in just 3.5 seconds. And that is 0.3 seconds quicker than regular Vanquish. The EPA fuel economy is 14.4 mpg in the city and 30.4 mpg on the highway. To further improve sporty feel engineers also retuned suspension and spring rates.
