THE ASTON MARTIN VANQUISH

The official Aston Martin website calls the Vanquish "a car beloved by modern day enthusiasts and also heritage collectors alike."

Originating with a 1998 Ian Callum concept design, the sleek 2001 Vanquish introduced Aston Martin's all-alloy V12 – the first of its configuration for the marque. The Vanquish series brought "huge developments in engineering and design," many of which are still evident in current Aston Martins. These advances were achieved without diminishing the marque's traditions of hand-finished craftsmanship and exceptional performance, traits which have pleased the most demanding and perceptive of automotive aficionados for more than a century. The 'Superformed' aluminum exterior panels that so attractively cloak the aluminum/carbon fiber Vanquish body core were hand finished in the factory panel shop, and inside, the finest hand-stitched leather covered the seats. A featured role in the 2002 James Bond franchise film, Die Another Day, very successfully connected the Vanquish to another globally prominent aspect of the Aston Martin marque legacy.

During its 2013 centenary, Aston Martin resurrected the Vanquish series name for a new flagship line of twelve-cylinder "super grand tourers." With those cars, the firm acknowledged the contribution the highly regarded 2001-2007 Vanquish cars made to the marque heritage.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Having covered fewer than 15,000 miles from new, the Vanquish on offer is a truly remarkable and enticing super car that has been sparingly used and carefully maintained. Completed at the Newport Pagnell factory in June 2003, the hand built Aston Martin received final inspection by Mr. Thomas Clark before being shipped off to the US where it would be retained by Midwestern owners until 2013. Today the powerful Vanquish remains in highly original and well-kept condition, with a stunning interior of the finest hides and Alcantara, Navigation, a premium LINN stereo system and a glovebox trimmed by "Q" are also features of the Vanquish. Diligently serviced since new, a better example of this Bond classic will be hard to find.
