DESIGNED TO BE DRIVEN
If a supercar is a no-compromise machine capable of devastating speed, and a GT is a fast, smooth and refined way to cover long distances, then the new Vanquish S is that rare creation: a super GT offering the best of both. As with the Vanquish, it features carbon-fibre body architecture and a naturally-aspirated 6.0-litre V12 engine, but Gaydon’s engineers and designers have added more power, revised styling and improved dynamics. Ideal for a relaxed high-speed tour all the way to the Nürburgring – and a blistering hot lap or two once you’ve arrived there.
To say the Vanquish S has a new carbon-fibre front splitter and rear diffuser understates the impact of both. These components give it a low, lean and menacing air, further accentuated if you choose an optional contrast graphics pack. However, the aero components do far more than create visual drama. The front splitter, for example, features tiny ‘turning vanes’ at the outer edge which reduce lift at speed. Quad exhaust pipes with bright finishers nestle within the carbon-fibre rear diffuser and the effect is completed by ten-spoke gloss black sports wheels (other designs are optionally available).
