The Aston Martin Vanquish Is an $85,000 Used Car Bargain

I find Aston martin's (apart from the latest one) fairly ordinary looking. Oh and is it really worth spending $50k on for a manual transmission? Why not just get a new AM. Interior of this car looks garbage.

I agree with you Doug. In fact, I would go so far as to say this is arguably the best looking car EVER made. I do not have any issue with the headlights, and find them to be elegantly simple, yet beautifully sculpted into the form of the car. The hollowed out section creates a nice recessed stage to display the classic round lights without resorting to something overtly retro or overdone LEDs and light pipes. I don't care for the vertical component of the rear haunches as much as you do. I find it a little bit too pronounced and it interrupts the flowing shape of the car. I don't hate it, I just wish that it faded out around the door handle, and that the lower section blended the rear fender into the door without the blister. The taillights do look a bit dated and oversized, but that is about all I can critique about the outside. The surfaces are simultaneously beautifully flowing while also extremely muscular. The sculpting is exquisite, lacking the current trend of an overdone litany of creases. Even the greenhouse looks sleek and modern 17 years later. Modern Astons look like AMC Pacers next to this Vanquish.

So they sell you a 300k car with almost undrivable transmission and 12 years later they offer you a gearbox swap for 40k. What a deal! It is an epic looking Aston though and it should have had a manul gearbox from the beginning.

50 000$??? Aston should have changed those transmissions for free. This is a vivid example of what happens when everyone is fallowing the new trend and changing things without thinking and forgetting how good the replaced one was. Today manufacturers trend to produce taller cars and for instance this trend sucks.

I think the DB7 is more beautiful than the Vanquish because it has better proportions. The Vanquish to me looks a bit too tall, too bulky, but still like it a lot, especially that name, Vanquish. It sounds manly and sophisticated.

Ever since Die Another Day, I loved the Vanquish, and the Vanquish S even more so. The DB9 & DBS looks more contemporary, but the Vanquish still had the older Aston style merged with the early "modern" take on Aston's new design language that started with the DB7.

Doug, I completely agree with your assesment of the beauty of the Vanquish, it's truly breathtaking. That was one of the reasons I purchased one about a year ago. I also agree that the gearbox is a bit crap, but then that is a refection of the era in which it was made. Like the owner of your review Vanquish, I am planning on having my car converted to manual. Good review.

IHMO, a sexy, aggressive circa 2000's supercar; albeit Aston cheaped out on the interior - yes I own one and love the body styling and sound of the V12. Correction Doug: the factory trans is a manual. It is a Tremec T56 with auto/hydraulic clutch and Magnetti Marelli auto-shift-manual (ASM) power unit (same F1 type unit used in Ferraris, Lambos, Maseratis of that time). My original system works great; just had to replace the ASM pump and accumulator ($650 in parts)- no different than Ferrari, etc. I guess one loves it or hates it, I love it.

This is a fascinating presentation of an unusual, early Vanquish with the manual conversion. The later Vanquish S (with its greatly increased power and far better brakes) which had the manual gearbox conversion would possibly have been an even more interesting subject, had one been found. Unfortunately those many reviewers who savagely criticised the original semi-automatic gearbox, plainly never took the trouble to learn how to use it properly. Once you learn the art, the car goes smoothly and swiftly, but it does need skill and practice. A manual conversion is unnecessary, certainly on the later cars. (The Ford and Volvo parts never go wrong; that is their justification.)
