The magnificent 6.0-litre V12 has evolved to become more powerful and more responsive. Vanquish harnesses its 568 bhp (576 PS) with remarkable results. It is capable of 201 mph (323 km/h) and covers 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.8 seconds), yet with much improved fuel efficiency, lower emissions and greater refinement, Vanquish has a broader range of talents than ever before.


Raw numbers tell part of the story, but it is the way this magnificent engine delivers its power that is truly mesmerising. Engineered to deliver a torrent of performance from idle to its rev limit in one mighty wave.


Beneath Vanquish’s muscular skin is a super-strong, super-stiff skeleton of bonded aluminium. This structure – known as the VH architecture – has been subject to a comprehensive programme of re-engineering to achieve new levels of performance, refinement, responsiveness and safety.


The elemental power of the Vanquish 6.0-litre V12 now works in combination with one of the most sophisticated gearboxes in the world. The 8-speed Touchtronic III gearbox is a revolution, improving every facet of the Vanquish driving experience. Gearshifts are smoother and quicker (as fast as 130 milliseconds), refinement is improved at high speeds, more power is transmitted to the road and its lower mass improves driving dynamics.
