We are delighted to offer for sale this stunning left hand drive 2006 Aston Martin Vanquish ‘S’. This example is presented in Jet Black exterior paint with a fabulous Obsidian Black with Spicy Red accented full leather interior.
This particular example benefits from Aston Workshop’s renowned 6-Speed automatic gearbox upgrade. This now allows the car to drive as it should without the historic faults that are known to occur with the original Vanquish gearbox. The Vanquish always looked and sounded very special and with this enhancement the car is now also a joy to drive. Please note the original gearbox also comes with the car on completion of sale.
The Vanquish S built on the success of the original Vanquish with an increase in engine power from 460bhp to 520bhp and revised gear and back axle ratios. Top speed was quoted as being in excess of 200mph, making it one of the fastest Aston Martin road cars built at Newport Pagnell.
The exterior panels of this car were lovingly hand finished in the factory panel shop from ‘Superformed’ aluminium. Discreet changes to the ‘S’ that are present on this example included a bigger, revised grille, front splitter and a raised rear spoiler built into the boot lid to keep the car stable at high speed.
Inside, this Vanquish S shows what could be achieved with beautiful hand stitched leather. The dashboard and many of the smaller interior pieces are trimmed in hide adding to the bespoke feel of the already impressive cabin. Being a very late car, this example also adopted updated switchgear, an Aston Martin audio system and standard fit satellite navigation screen.
This car has now covered less than 30,200km and can only be described as the perfect grand tourer. Having originally been delivered new to Japan and first registered on 19 May 2007, it was regularly serviced by the main Aston Martin agent before being brought back to England by Aston Martin. Upon return to England it was purchased by the current owner who also had it regularly maintained by a main Aston Martin agent in Monaco.
