2003 Aston Martin Vanquish V12
The Aston Martin Vanquish is a super grand tourer introduced by British car manufacturer Aston Martin in 2001 as a successor to the ageing Virage range.
The Aston Martin V12 Vanquish was designed by Ian Callum and bore a large resemblance to the production DB7 Vantage. The car debuted with a V12 engine at the North American International Auto Show in January 1998.
The first-generation V12 Vanquish prototype, was driven by James Bond in the 2002 film Die Another Day.
Why This Car Is Special
You do not have to be James Bond to drive one now because we have one here at Skyway Classics. The total number of these that were built for 2003 was an even 100 cars and they sold out early, according to Automotive News. So, the chances of finding one as nice as ours For Sale is rare.
The amazing engine is a 6.0 Litre V-12, 48-valve 60° one, producing 460 Horse Power and 400 lb?ft of torque. It is controlled by a drive-by-wire throttle and a six-speed Electrohydraulic manual transmission.
Underneath, the car featured a strong aluminium/carbon fiber composite chassis with Rear-wheel Drive, ABS 4-wheel Power brakes, and driveline Traction control, dual exhaust system, 19"" silver factory aluminum Wheels, and performance tires.
Built on a 106-inch wheelbase, the V12 Vanquish measures 183.7 inches long overall and stands 51.9 inches tall. The close-ratio six-speed-manual transmission uses fingertip-actuated Formula One-style paddles to produce gear changes; the gearbox can also be used in automatic mode. A special shifting program is tailored for winter weather conditions.

The main body structure of our V12 Vanquish is painted a regal Titanium Silver Metallic that utilizes carbon fiber, extruded aluminum and composite materials that are bonded together to form a central safety cell in a process also used in the aerospace industry. Aston Martin says its lighter, stiffer and stronger than conventional body construction that utilizes bolts or welding. The automaker also claims it provides improved crash protection.
It has side vents and a large grille that is flanked by bold auxiliary driving lamps, the V12 looks superb. The front fenders and hood panels incorporate finely detailed compound curves that sweep back to steeply raked windshield pillars and a low, curving roofline. Deeply sculptured sill and door panels accentuate the classic profile, and larger trapezoidal taillights sit in a slightly higher, arching tail. A chrome racing-style fuel filler is used.
This 2003 Aston Martin Vanquish V12 we have at Skyway Classics is a Factory Original car in flawless condition. This V12 is like a great wine, as it will only appreciate in value as it gets older. Do yourself a favor, and buy something you will enjoy driving, and will help your wallet in the future too.
