2006 Aston Martin Vanquish S
As the story goes, Aston Martin wasn't 100 per cent on board with
having the DB5 on the silver screen. In a way, Eon Productions had
to beg Aston Martin to so much as "lend" them a DB5 prototype for
Goldfinger. Then, Goldfinger hit theaters...Hard. It was a runaway
success and the DB5 captured the hearts and minds of many. The fact
that it was fitted with certain enhancements such as oil slicks,
concealed machine guns, tire shredders and, of course, an ejector
seat, was the icing on the cake. The Aston Martin Vanquish S
debuted at the 2004 Paris Motor Show, with much increased engine
power, beautiful aerodynamic lines, and plenty of conveniences. A
marked difference and a long way from the original DB5, but still
holding the James Bond style.
For Consignment a car for the person who just may want to go around
with the capability to go 200 MPH. Where exactly one would do this,
I'm not currently at liberty to say, but there are places.
Otherwise you do not have to go maximum speed, you can just to
choose to show up in the ultimate style supercar todays money can
buy. All hand built and all quality to excess.
With just shy of 40,500 miles, and bathed in slick black with some
visual changes to this '06 model including new wheels, a slightly
different nose shape, a new raised boot lid with a larger
integrated spoiler incorporating the third high level brake light
(in the rear window on the original Vanquish), a Vanquish S badge
on the boot lid (the original Vanquish had no rear model
designation) and the addition of a small front splitter (although
this was mainly done for aerodynamic reasons). As part of its
improvements, the Vanquish S had a slightly improved drag
coefficient. This supercar has very little markings on it, straight
panels still lovingly hand finished in the factory panel shop from
'Superformed' aluminum from the plant in Newport Pagnell. We note
well minded gaps, and stunning curvaceous lines to boot!
Inside the Vanquish S shows what could be achieved with beautiful
hand stitched leather. The dashboard and many of the smaller
interior pieces are trimmed in hide adding to the bespoke feel of
the already impressive 2+2 cabin. Highlighting areas within the
black, are brushed aluminum trim, which adds beautiful contrast and
cold texture. This car has an adopted updated paddle switchgear, an
Aston Martin audio system, and several pushbutton drive modes, and
all the power conveniences and hands-free hookups one would want.
Hovering above is a pristine suede headliner.
The engine displacement is at 5,935 cc (5.9 L-362.2 cu in), and
power is 520hp. We note a wonderfully clean engine bay looking near
showroom. Attached to the back of this V12 is a 6-speed manual
gearbox with Auto Shift Manual/Select Shift Manual (ASM/SSM)
electro-hydraulic control system.
Loaded with aerodynamic ground effects panels, absolutely clean,
and pristine underneath. The car sports a Quicksilver exhaust
(meaning full Titanium) running from front to back.
With a top speed exceeding 200 mph, the Vanquish S was (as measured
by top speed capability) the fastest Aston Martin automobile ever
produced until the One-77 was introduced in 2008. Also, you can
carry 4 passengers in this car.
