Aston Martin announces improved Vanquish & Rapide S Models

15MY Rapide S

Aston Martin has announced a thrilling range of improvements to both the Vanquish and Rapide S.
The new 15 Model Year (15MY) cars will start arriving in dealerships over the next few months, and both models offer enhanced performance, improved fuel economy & emissions, and an even more pleasurable driving experience.
The 15MY vehicles debut the new Touchtronic III 8-speed automatic gearbox, the first time that this state of the art technology has been used in a transaxle layout – the result of meticulous work between Aston Martin engineers and technical partner, ZF.

Performance improvements include 0-60mph time dropping from 4.1 seconds to just 3.6 seconds in the Vanquish with the Rapide S covering the same sprint in 4.2 seconds, down from 4.7 seconds. The improvements mean that the Vanquish is now the fastest accelerating series production model in Aston Martin history. The changes made to the gear and final drive ratios also mean that fuel economy and emissions are also improved with CO2 figures dropping by an average of 10% in both models. Both models also now top 200mph.
