British luxury carmaker Aston Martin has unveiled the new Vanquish S for 2017, its last naturally aspirated V12 powered car.
The new Vanquish S brings with it new performance upgrades including an updated version of Aston's sonorous naturally aspirated V12 engine along with upgraded dampers, spring rates and anti-roll bar bushes.
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.
Inside, the Vanquish S gets a satin carbon fibre dashboard fascia panel along with seats done up in Bridge of Weir Caithness quilted leather.
The new Vanquish is available in both coupe and convertible form with prices for the coupe starting at£199,950 (Rs. 1.69 Crore) in the United Kingdom.
