The 5.9-litre V12 engine produces 595bhp (an increase of 27bhp over the old Vanquish) and 630Nm of torque which is sent to the rear wheels through a 8-speed automatic gearbox which now can shift faster through the gears.

The increase in power is thanks to larger inlet manifolds up front along with a free breathing stainless steel exhaust setup with four tailpipes sticking out of the rear end.

The Vanquish S will sprint from 0-100km/h in 3.5 seconds (0.3 seconds faster than the previous Vanquish) and will keep on accelerating till it hits a top speed of 323km/h.

Design wise, the Vanquish S features a carbon fibre body kit with a sculpted splitter up front along with a rather hefty rear diffuser that won't look out of place in a race car. The 20-inch diamond turned alloy wheels and the carbon-fibre bonnet louvres are optional extras.
