This is a very rare 2005 Aston Martin Vanquish S with 1900 miles. One of very few that were made for the USA and
very likely the lowest mile and most pristine car left in the USA. This is a two owner car that has all service up
to date, no blemishes, no paint work, no stories. The car has always been serviced at a factory authorized Aston
dealer. The car comes with all the items that came with the car when new. (all keys, charger, umbrella, new indoor
car cover, books and records). This is the car for the collector that must have the lowest mile and best Vanquish S
left in the country. Being the best driving Aston ever made this is likely to be a very desirable and valuable car
in the future. Aston acknowledges how special this car is by classifying the Vanquish S under their “Heritage
Program” which is the designation they use for their most significant and collectible models. This 2+2 Vanquish
S is a beautiful grey color called Meteorite Silver over Phantom Grey interior. The car has the rear seat option
and has an original MSRP of $268,000.The car is stored in a climate controlled storage facility in Westchester NY
and viewing can be arranged during normal business hours.
Some info on the rare Vanquish S model:
The 2005 Aston Martin Vanquish S was produced as a true supercar from Aston to mark the last of the hand made cars,
the last car made at the Newport Pagnell factory which started with the DB4 in 1958. It was the final and last of
the cars made all by hand with true fine craftsmanship.
Each Vanquish S took over 400 hours of labor to produce.
Upgrades to the S from a standard Vanquish include more power rated at 520 bhp up from 460 bhp in a standard
Vanquish. Bigger revised grille, front splitter and raised rear spoiler built into the boot lid to keep the car
stable at higher speeds. The car also has 20% more direct steering, larger brakes and unique wheels. The
Vanquish/Vanquish S is also the only Aston to get a carbon fiber roll bar in the engine bay and a 100% full flat
under floor like race cars.
The S was a true supercar with a top speed rated over 200 MPH, and an engine sound no other modern Aston can beat.
A very unique raw feel to this car without DSC, only a limited slip differential and traction control.
The gearbox is not an automatic with torque converter, it is a manual with electro-hydraulic clutch so you have
full control over the engine.
A very rare car with a total of 711 left hand drive Vanquish S models ever made with less than half of those
imported to the USA.
This is likely to be one of the most collectible and valuable Astons ever made, and likely the only modern Aston
that will ever be highly collectible. Prices have already risen in Europe significantly ahead of the price here in
the US.

AMG's partnership with Aston Martin won't extend past engines, for now

Sun, 27 Apr 2014 07:59:00 EST

There's been talk of late about the technical partnership between Aston Martin and the AMG division of Mercedes-Benz going beyond engines to include Mercedes sports car and SUV platforms for the English brand, perhaps as a way to kickstart the development of a Lagonda SUV. But AMG CEO Tobias Moers, speaking to Top Gear, said that's effectively out of the question because, "No one has the time to discuss any more involvement than that for now."
Moers believes Aston Martin will be so busy "for the next two to three years" integrating its AMG-sourced engine and electronics that it won't have the resources to devote to working out a platform-sharing deal; Daimler sources have already said that Aston Martin's development budget "just isn't enough" to even consider a whole new model, and that greater cooperation would require something like a larger ownership stake in the boutique sports car maker.
AMG, in the meantime, is busy with the recent launch of the GLA45 AMG, the coming C63 AMG and its rumored 4.0-liter V8, the Mercedes-AMG GT and its assault on the Porsche 911 among who-knows-what other skunkworks projects. Moers said the technical partnership is about profit for AMG, clear and simple, and, "All these rumors about platform sharing are nice but no one at Aston or Mercedes has the time to discuss them."

Aston Martin and Mercedes-AMG formalize technical partnership

Thu, 19 Dec 2013 16:01:00 EST

The development of a partnership between Mercedes-Benz and Aston Martin has been a long time coming. The news dates back to 2008, and over the five years since was supposed to lead to a rejuvenation of both the Maybach and Lagonda brands. That program ultimately fell apart, but the tie-in was forged afresh in July when the two automakers signed a letter of intent over a renewed partnership. And now that partnership has been formalized.
In a deal just announced, Mercedes-AMG will build a new V8 engine for Aston Martin that will power a new generation of luxury GTs for the British marque, presumably to replace the 4.7-liter V8 in the Vantage. The relationship appears to be similar to the one already in place between AMG and Pagani, only in this case, will involve Daimler taking as much as a five-percent stake in Aston Martin and an observer seat on Aston's board.
The technical partnership is also set to lead to the supply of electric and electronic systems, and could incorporate "additional areas of cooperation in the future." Whether that will include a fresh attempt at reviving Lagonda remains to be seen, as does the future of Aston's long-serving, Ford-based 6.0-liter V12 engine. But for now you can read the full announcement below.

Jaguar F-Type squares off against Porsche 911, Aston V8 Vantage with Chris Harris

Fri, 21 Jun 2013 19:59:00 EST

Chris Harris is back on the job, taking on really really difficult car questions like: Which enormously sexy and good-to-drive, high-performance convertible is the top of the heap? As one of the hottest cars in the luxury space right now, the Jaguar F-Type S is, of course, in on the action. Competition comes in the form of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster and the Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet. Sun-loving CEOs who despise test-driving need look no further.
Scroll on below for a fully featured (with a running time of more than 20 minutes) comparison video. Harris does his best to entertain - in a typically nitpicky and made-up-British-words fashion - and the moving pictures are lovely to look at. Kick back, pour a pint and get your weekend started off right.
