Aston Martin V12 Vanquish - Part 1

by Mike

Aston Martin introduced their new flagship super car, the V12 Vanquish, in 2001. Featured in the James Bond movie, Die Another Day, the Vanquish was well received and was produced until 2007.

The Vanquish was a fun and fast car to drive but, in my opinion, suffered from the use of the paddle shift transmission instead of a manual shift transmission. Although, it was a better paddle shift transmission than that offered on the Ferrari 575M.

Below are pictures from Aston Martin literature and technical data from Aston Martin.

Part 2 will be about cars for sale.
