The beating heart of the Vanquish Carbon is the latest version of our iconic 6.0-litre V12 masterpiece. Sophisticated new engine management frees even more power and torque while communicating seamlessly with the new 8-speed Touchtronic III automatic gearbox. The lighter, faster gearbox enhances refinement when required but also executes each gearshift with greater precision when the unfettered savagery of the engine’s ultimate power is summoned.


With shifts completed as quick as 130 milliseconds and 568 bhp (576 PS) to draw upon, the Vanquish Carbon Coupe is capable of 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.8 sec) and a breath-taking top speed of 201 mph (324 km/h).


Hidden beneath the outer carbon fibre skin is an incredibly strong and rigid aluminium structure. The integrity of this core architecture ensures that the Vanquish Carbon Volante is as responsive, composed and agile as its sibling the Coupe. With precision-tuned new electronically controlled dampers featuring Normal, Sport and Track settings, both versions offer extreme agility coupled to intuitive control.
