Update – Local pricing has been also been confirmed for the Vanquish S Volante. See article for details


Australian pricing for the 2017 Aston Martin Vanquish S has been announced this week, with first deliveries of the company’s flagship sports car to arrive next month.

Starting at $489,950 excluding on-road costs, the Vanquish S kicks off around $4000 more than the model it replaces, while being nearly $13,000 cheaper than the outgoing Vanquish Carbon Edition.

Headlining the updates is an uprated version of its 5.9-litre V12 (though Aston Martin refers to it as a 6.0-litre unit), which now produces 444kW of power – up from 424kW in the ‘standard’ Vanquish.

It’s the same engine that powers the limited-edition (and now sold out) Vanquish Zagato coupe and Volante twins.

The eight-speed automatic has also been revised to deliver faster shift times and increased refinement at lower speeds, while a new carbon-fibre aero package gives the Vanquish a more aggressive aesthetic.

While it may not look too different from the previous model, the Vanquish S is distinguishable from the outgoing car by its new quad-exhaust outlets, which are housed in a new carbon-fibre rear diffuser.

Thanks to the power bump and revised transmission, the Vanquish S is capable from accelerating from 0-100km/h in just 3.5 seconds – 0.3 seconds faster than the Vanquish – on its way to an unchanged top speed of 323km/h.

Fuel consumption is rated at 13.1L/100km on the European combined cycle, but let’s face it – anyone who buys this kind of car doesn’t care about fuel economy.

Inside, the Vanquish S is available with an array of new carbon-fibre trim elements – including a beautiful Satin Chopped Carbon-Fibre fascia panel for the centre console (above) – along with new leather upholstery choices.

For those who love the wind in their hair, there’s also a drop-top Volante version heading Down Under (pictured above), which starts at a dearer $526,950 before ORCs, a smidgen over $5000 more than the model it replaces.
