The 2012 Aston Martin Vanquish is a grand-tourer produced by Aston Martin.

It replaces the DBS, which itself replaced the original V12 Vanquish. The Vanquish is available either as a 2-seater or as a 2+2.

It uses the fourth generation of Aston Martin's VH platform, which is lighter than its predecessor due to its extensive use of carbon-fibre.

An upgraded version of Aston Martin's 5.9L V12 engine, an interior inspired by the limited-production One-77 and a Touchtronic 2 automatic transmission are also included.
