History, development and general characteristics

The Aston Martin Vanquish was first seen as a production model in 2000 and it would enter the car markets in 2001. This grand tourer is the result of a concept car which Aston Martin had been working on, which was best known as the ‘Project Vantage’. It would quickly become the brand’s mainstream model for the years of its lifespan.

When Aston Martin ceased production of the Vanquish, in July 2007, a ‘Vanquish Ultimate Edition’ model was released to celebrate the event and it included the last 40 Aston Martin Vanquish units produced.
