Aston Martin Vanquish video review

The all-new Aston Martin Vanquish is a replacement for the outgoing DBS - but is it any good?

Aston Martin claims the all-new Vanquish is a replacement for the outgoing DBS – yet you’d be hard pushed to tell the two cars apart if you parked them side-by-side.

The exterior changes include a mildly reworked front end, a gorgeous set of body creases and an integrated carbon-fibre boot spoiler. But it’s under the skin where you’ll find the biggest differences.

The all-carbon Vanquish is fitted with a 565bhp 6.0-litre V12 and there are three driving modes. Aston has worked on the car’s handling, too, so the Vanquish is lighter, sharper and better to drive than the outgoing DBS.
