Bangkok--30 Mar--Neo Target

Luxury British sports car manufacturer Aston Martin is making history at the 38th Bangkok International Motor Show (BIMS) 2017 with the Asia motor show debut of the acclaimed new Vanquish S, the most powerful and dynamic iteration of Aston Martin's ultimate Super GT model.

Vanquish S boasts sharper styling, greater potency and increased athleticism define this latest evolution of an illustrious model line, one that originated from Aston Martin's legendary Works in Newport Pagnell and has proudly served as standard bearer for the marque's sporting and stylistic values since 2001.

Another exciting highlight for DB fans in Thailand is the all-new DB11 on display. There are two examples of the model on the Aston Martin stand this year, the first finished in Magnetic Silver exterior combined with a sumputous Sahara Tan interior, and the second in Cinnabar Orange exterior with Metallic Black interior. DB11 is the absolute embodiment of what an Aston Martin should be, combining both exceptional design with the latest technology throughout. A brand new bonded aluminium platform, clever aerodynamics, a new characterful twin-turbo V12 and class-leading infotainment systems are just a few aspects which make this the sports car that will proudly spearhead Aston Martin's second century plan.

Vanquish S takes Aston Martin's ultimate Super GT to the next level

For this second generation Vanquish's evolution to S specification, careful attention has been paid to the engine, chassis and aerodynamics to create a machine honed to deliver more intense thrills and even more scintillating performance.

Central to this is the naturally-aspirated 6.0 litre V12 engine, which now produces 588PS (up from 573PS) and enjoys sensational throttle response, thanks to a revised, freer-breathing intake system. These larger volume inlet manifolds allow a greater volume of air to flow into the engine at high revs, creating a relentless power delivery and a stronger feel all the way to the redline.

Building on this increased intensity, the calibration of the 8-speed Touchtronic III transmission has been revised to deliver faster gearshifts and greater refinement at low speeds for a greater sense of precision and immediacy.

Likewise, the suspension, damper internals, spring rates and anti-roll bar bushes have also been re-tuned to give the Vanquish S a keener edge in the more sporting suspension modes, without compromising its ability to deliver supple ride quality on demand.

Visually the Vanquish S can be readily distinguished by a new aerodynamic package. Fashioned from exposed carbon fibre, this revised front splitter and rear diffuser combine to deliver a meaningful reduction in frontal lift with a minimal penalty in additional drag.

Combined with visually striking new quad exhaust outlets the Vanquish S has more aggressive appearance, entirely fitting for Aston Martin's most overtly sporting GT production model.

This look can be further enhanced with a range of new options. These include carbon fibre bonnet louvres, new forged 5-spoke diamond turned wheels and a choice of striking painted graphics packs. A new Vanquish S badge sits proudly on the tailgate as the perfect piece of jewellery.

Inside, the Vanquish S can be further personalised with a choice of spectacular new 'Filograph' quilted leather and the use of new materials and finishes, such as the Satin Chopped Carbon Fibre fascia panel. Sumptuous Bridge of Weir Caithness leather offers an added touch of luxury and tactility, while Vanquish S embroidery on the headrests provides a crafted finishing detail.

From the moment the original Vanquish was launched it became a modern icon. It propelled Aston Martin from an era of hand-built cars to one where craftsmanship and technology combined to create a new kind of great British GT.

In its second generation the Vanquish maintained that momentum with huge engineering advances such as its all-carbon fibre bodywork and compelling, contemporary styling. Now, the Vanquish S takes things a step further, confidently asserting itself within the Aston Martin range and distinguishing itself from the new DB11. A spectacular machine in every sense, the Vanquish S is a magnificent addition to the range.

The Aston Martin stand is at Challenger 3, Impact Muang Thong Thani, at the 38th Bangkok International Motor Show 2017, from March 29th until April 9th 2017.

Aston Martin Bangkok is committed to providing customers in Thailand world-class services at its three Aston Martin flagship showrooms: Luxury Mall, Siam Paragon, Bangkok, Rama III Showroom and Service Centre Bangkok, and the recently opened third showroom – the 500 sq.m MGC-Asia Autoplex Phuket to service customers in the south of Thailand.
