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).
The Vanquish is a hand-built machine and individuality is a large part of its appeal. You can personalise the exterior with lightweight forged 5-spoke diamond-turned wheels, carbon-fibre bonnet louvres and a graphics pack; when it comes to the interior, the options are even more extensive. Among the choices are an all-new asymmetric Filograph quilt design on the seat accents, door cards and headlining; 2x2 twill or satin chopped carbon-fibre fascia; Alcantara, Caithness or Balmoral leather; and a One-77 steering wheel. In fact, so wide is the selection that your H.R. Owen Aston Martin dealership is by far the best place to explore it.
