Back at the turn of the century, British luxury automobile manufacturer Aston Martin introduced a new model, one that would succeed the 1993 Vantage. The vehicle in question was the V12 Vanquish, which ran from 2001 to 2007. After a few years off, the Vanquish returned for a second hurrah in 2012, when it ran for a few more years before being discontinued again in 2018. Over those collective 14 years, the Aston Martin Vanquish represented a phenomenal option in the grand tourer segment, and we occasionally see some of these used models pass through our inventory here in North Miami Beach FL.
Let’s start by taking a look at the first generation, which was separated into two major variants. The original V12 Vanquish ran from 2001 to 2005, while the redesigned V12 Vanquish S ran from 2004 until the end of the first generation in 2007. It featured a host of style updates and an increase in power. In addition to the two main models, however, there were a host of special editions and one-offs created throughout its run.
Special editions for the first generation included two one-offs – the Vanquish Zagato Roadster and the Vanquish Bertone Jet 2 – and the Vanquish S Ultimate Edition, which was the designation given to the final 50 Vanquish models built. These units featured a unique exterior color, an upgraded cabin and some exclusive sill plaques.
The second generation included three major variants, the regular Vanquish from 2012-2018, the Vanquish Volante from 2013-2018 and the Vanquish S from 2017-2018. The Volante was, of course, a convertible version of the iconic vehicle, whereas the Vanquish S was a short-lived redesign. The second-gen Vanquish had its fair share of special edition models as well, including the Centenary Edition, Volante Neiman Marcus Edition and Zagato.
