Introduced in 2001, the Aston Martin V12 Vanquish quickly rose to fame with its role as the official James Bond car in "Die Another Day," the twentieth 007 film. It was succeeded by the Vanquish S model, which debuted in fall 2004.

With a maximum speed in excess of 200mph (320 km/h) and a 6.0 litre V12 engine developing 520 horsepower, the Vanquish S is the fastest production model ever to be built by Aston Martin.

"The Vanquish S V12 is a combination of state-of-the-art aerospace technology and hand craftsmanship," said CEO Ulrich Bez. "It is the flagship model of a confident and growing company that is proud to display its heritage but is also determined to make the most technologically modern and inspirational sports cars in the world."

The car has remained atop Aston's lineup as the company's flagship model for several years, but will be discontinued after the 2007 model year in favor of the V12 DBS. While the DBS is not a direct replacement to the Vanquish S, it will hold this role until the Vanquish's true successor arrives around the end of the decade.
