2002 ASTON MARTIN VANQUISH 2+2 - £89,995
Inspired by the Aston Martin DB4GT Zagato, designer Ian Callum has taken the elegant and classic lines of the past and penned a bold and chiseled look for the Vanquish. As enthusiasts, we marvel at the history, the styling, the machinery and the technology that are infused into a performance car's DNA. However, what ultimately wins our affection is the thrilling driving experience that stimulates our human senses: an engine's bold and authoritative bark and a well-balanced, confidence-inspiring chassis.
The 2002 V12 Vanquish is the ultimate Gran Turismo that not only delivers top-notch styling, performance and luxury, but most importantly an exhilarating driving experience that excites our senses of sight, sound, smell and touch, all at the same time.
Insert the key and turn on the ignition, push the starter button and the 5.9 litre V12 quietly comes to life. At idle, this dohc powerplant is docile compared with most other super-performance sports cars. A quick pull on the right paddle shifter puts the car into 1st gear. Stomp on the gas pedal. The electronic drive-by-wire throttle immediately snaps open, releasing the might of all 12 pistons and delivery of 450 bhp and 400 lbf-ft of torque is linear and buttery-smooth and the accompanying engine growl is simply mesmerizing. The rumble through the twin exhaust resonates in the cabin and it ensures that occupants can hear and feel the car's awesome power. With a 0-60mph of 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 190mph, this is a true supercar!
Its appearance in the 2002 James Bond film Die Another Day earned the V12 Vanquish the number 3 spot on the list of 'Best Film Cars Ever' behind the Mini's from The Italian Job and the AM DB5 from Goldfinger & Thunderball.
