A Distinguished Heritage

In 1914, the of Aston Martin, Lionel and Robert Bamford, began handcrafted, high-performance sports They believed sports should have a distinctive and character, be built to the highest and be exhilarating to drive and own. than 90 years later values remain true

Aston Martin has earned a for another speciality: building one-to-one relationships wîth of its cars and wîth every This is due to meticulous records and plus personal attention experts at the factory.

The Vanquish S combines 21st Century and 200 mph (321 km/h) performance, understated elegance and craftsmanship.

To such an extraordinary car, the has used British expertise in and race-car engineering. Conventional materials and manufacturing techniques not good enough for the fastest car in Aston Martin’s history.

Power, Beauty Soul

The aluminium and carbon fibre of Vanquish S is unique to Aston It is this special combination of that gives the Vanquish S enormous strength and torsional for superior handling, safety and This technology has become the Martin signature of today; as hand-formed aluminium panels in the past. (The aluminium panels are still hand It is the best way to achieve a superb

As Aston Martin spearheads of its innovative construction techniques, so it leads wîth its sophisticated and Formula One-style transmission. on conceptcarz.com) The Vanquish S uses the powerful version ever of Martin’s highly acclaimed V12.

The six-speed manual is operated by F1-style paddles on the §teering wheel column. It can gear in approximately 250 milliseconds – or the of an eye.

The Vanquish S is unmistakably an Martin. It is elegant, powerful and But there is also a hint of in this classic Aston design, wîth a dynamic in its shape accentuated by the rear and their almost animal-like

The Vanquish S offers traditional Martin style and a real of time-honoured British craftsmanship. But skills are combined wîth ingenuity. The result is the Vanquish S – a car any other.

V12 Power Performance

to Stir the Soul

Aston hand-built 6.0-litre V12 is renowned as one of the engines in the world: enormously smooth and beautiful. It can also lay to being the world’s best-sounding performance car engine. In the Vanquish S, it its zenith.

Maximum power is 520 bhp kW) at 7000 rpm, wîth torque of 425 lb ft (577 Nm) at 5800

Such power delivers performance. Indeed, this is the road going Aston Top speed is more than 200 mph km/h), the 0-62 mph (100 dash is accomplished in only 4.8 while 0-100 mph (160 takes just 9.8 seconds. But it is the acceleration that is truly 50-70 mph (80-112 km/h) only 6.5 seconds in sixth

Overtaking is effortless.

A key factor in the efficiency is its high-speed multiplex system, called PTEC Train Electronic Control), is capable of transmitting information in one-thousandths of a second. There are two one for each bank of cylinders, by a high-speed system that the fuel injection and spark

There is no mechanical between the Vanquish S throttle and engine. Instead the movement of the is electronically measured to gauge how the driver wishes to go. This is then fed to the engine management which makes the engine accordingly.

The PTEC system constantly to the six-speed manual which is operated by an electro-hydraulic Únlike some systems, the S allows the driver to ‘skip’ changes from say, to fourth or fifth to second a pull on the paddle for each change. A failsafe system the engine will not over-rev and automatically opt for the next highest

The driver has a number of gear modes to choose from. In Shift Manual (SSM) the driver shifts gears up and using the §teering column-mounted paddles (right to upshift, to downshift). The only time the intervenes for the driver is at the red line, the computer automatically upshifts.

there is Auto Shift (ASM) mode, in which the takes care of all gear according to engine and road without driver intervention. But in ASM mode, subtle use of the throttle can gear changes to enhance the experience.

There is an optional mode in both settings. In SSM the system allows the driver to against the rev limiter without automatically. ASM Sport allows the to rev higher to use more of the engine’s and shifts more quickly.


Despite the high-technology the Vanquish S is built in the same as other Aston Martins it, one at a time, by hand. An individual takes responsibility for the creation of car.

In preparation for production of the the factory at Newport Pagnell in England, received a multi-million-pound that included an all-new line, paint shop, road and water test which simulates monsoon to ensure a watertight interior. technicians who used to hold welding guns now wield adhesive guns to bond composite components, crash and aluminium panels.

Bonding, does not distort the structure in any leads to a more dimensionally chassis than traditional steel.

Aston Martin have ensured that 21st century aerospace and materials come together to a car that raises the standards in quality, safety, durability and

The assembly process begins in a bonding jig housed in a temperature and controlled environment. The specially braided carbon fibre posts are first bonded to the core, followed by the carbon ‘backbone’ tunnel.

Next, the structure, plenum assembly, rear wings, and roof are all to the aluminium monocoque using a polyurethane adhesive. From the body shell moves to the simulator jig, where lid, doors, bonnet, wings and bumpers are fitted to alignment.

In the paint shop, body receives five of surface primer, two coats of and two coats of clearcoat. The painted which are hand-buffed after application, take two days to

In the final assembly area, the fuel tank is first in its own safety cell in a cavity the rear axle. Next, and transmission, fuel and brake underbody heat-shielding, air conditioning, harnesses and interior sound are fitted.

Meanwhile the front-end which will carry the suspension and engine, is assembled, as is the suspension. These are then to the ‘marriage jig’ where the body is lowered into and the front crash structure on.

Once the car is on its wheels, craftsmen to hand-produce the cabin. This takes more than 70 of labour and eight hides of

When finished, §teering and alignment are checked using alignment tools. The glass button on the dashboard is then for the first time. Testing on the road, on nearby roads, in the booth, and a final inspection, the build process.

In all, it just over 396 man hours to each Vanquish S, or around six from raw materials to the finished


High Torsional Optimum Steering Suspension

An Martin, especially the ultimate Martin, needs to delight its like no other car. It fast, predictable handling, and road holding. It needs to yet never surprise.

The Vanquish S is one of the handling and most predictable in the world. It communicates to the driver utmost faithfulness, and yet wîth entertainment.

The key to its nimbleness, and predictability, is its yet massively stiff body Nothing dulls performance weight. The lower the weight, the the response.

No great athlete is Nor is a truly great sports The aerospace-style body structure imparts superb torsional much greater than a steel body.

So the car stays in no matter what the conditions.

Performance Safety

The Vanquish S has one of the advanced construction techniques of any car, using composite and processes familiar to the aerospace but rarely seen in the motor.

The of a carbon fibre tunnel aluminium is its high strength-to-weight To provide the same levels of and rigidity, an aluminium tunnel be approximately twice as heavy.

fibre also provides insulation from transmission and heat in the passenger cabin. It is unique combination of tub and tunnel gives the Vanquish S its structural and allowed engineers to develop a that combines precise behaviour wîth unrivalled quality.

The aluminium body panels are using a patented Superform invented for the aerospace. The aluminium are submitted to 480-degrees centigrade and 150 psi air pressure to create the deep-drawn of the Vanquish S, which are very to mould from traditional stampings.

Final shaping and of each body panel are as they always have at Aston Martin — by to ensure flawless edges and This is not just for sentimental of heritage. It is still the best way to complicated panels.

Aston was not content wîth complying the most stringent crash The Vanquish S comfortably exceeds thanks in part to the front two forward-mounted technically innovative rails.

The rails consist of elements. The first is a layer of fibres aligned in one direction. A layer of carbon fibres is at 90 degrees to the first layer to the integrity of the glass fibres in a

A third corrugated glass composite element is used as the structure to hold the crash in position. Similar composite are used in the boot floor to the car from rear impacts.

As a of convenience and safety, the Vanquish S is wîth a sophisticated tyre monitoring system. If the air pressure in a drops below a level for maximum driving speeds, a warning light will illuminate.

If the sensor light it means that pressure in one of the has become dangerously low. A LCD readout enables the driver to the faulty tyre. Additionally, wipers and automatic lights are

The Vanquish S is full of innovation, designed to improve and safety. The advanced aluminium and fibre body is replete world firsts. One example is the developed braided carbon-fibre for the ‘A’ posts and the engine bay brace.

Engineers from Martin invented a novel process that encases a foam core wîth carbon fibre. The result is an strong yet light structure of withstanding the force of a crash or

Playing a huge role in Aston Martin, a classic carmaker, to both financial and technological sophistication, the Vanquish delivered. Like any proper Martin, the Vanquish not only had gorgeous styling, but also a spice with muscular and a wide, squat stance. It is to be the most masculine of Aston’s design.

Loosely based on the platform, the V12 Vanquish instead thoroughly modern technology.

in 1913 by Lionel Martin and Bamford, Aston Martin was called Bamford Martin the two had joined forces the previous to sell cars made by from premises in Callow London. At this location also serviced GWK and Calthorpe Martin raced specials at Hill near Aston and the two men chose to make their own

The first car dubbed Aston was created by Martin by fitting a Coventry-Simplex engine to the chassis of a Isotta-Fraschini. Martin and Bamford premises at Henniker Place in and produced their first car in 1915.

In July of 2007 production of the Martin Vanquish was ended and with the company’s Newport factory after 49 years of The final car was the Vanquish S Ultimate in black.

A high-performance coupe, the Martin V12 was produced from until 2006. The original was joined by the more powerful S in 2005, and only the S model was for the final year of production. The V12 main body structure aluminum sections bonded and around a central carbon-fiber tunnel. To keep the weight Aston utilized carbon A-pillars, all-aluminum suspension and body panels.

Despite all of the Vanquish still weighed in at more than 2 tons.

at Ford Research in the U.S. was the V12 in the Vanquish. The Vanquish’s V12 engine some of the components and design with the 3.0 L Duratec 30 V6. The engine shares the same bore and dimensions and for this reason people incorrectly dismiss the V12 as ‘two Duratecs linked

It is correct though that the AM V12 components with the ‘Duratec’ design. The standard Vanquish’s V12 produced 460 hp and 400 lb/ft of torque.

The of the Vanquish was also quite with a high-performance 6.0-liter V12 that first made 460 hp, and 520. To get that power to the wheels there was an automated-clutch, sequential-shift manual gearbox utilized F1-style paddle The V12 Vanquish also came 19-inch wheels with tires, power seats and a in-dash CD changer audio
