The Vanquish is already one of the world's most desirable exotic GTs. In newly updated S form, it is even more so. With a maximum speed in excess of 200mph, courtesy of an amped-up 6.0-liter V-12 engine developing 520 horsepower, the Vanquish S has been spec'd out to deliver even greater performance, complemented by subtle suspension, steering, and brake system upgrades. "The Big V" looks meaner too, with a reshaped grille and decklid plus new wheels. Revised steering geometry provides 20-percent quicker response, and the Sports Dynamics suspension, steering, and braking package that was optional on the Vanquish is standard on the Vanquish S. The original Vanquish's interior wasn't quite up to the level of the rest of the car, but Aston has upped the game for the S with a more richly finished cabin that now looks and feels the part. The Vanquish S's main competition is Ferrari's 550 Maranello and 612 Scaglietti. U.S. pricing has not yet been announced, but expect it to fall between $250k-275k.
