2006 Aston Martin Vanquish S Rocks BMW Carbon Black Paint

When it first came out in late 2004, the Vanquish S used to be Aston Martin‘s fastest-ever car, with a top speed exceeding 322 km/h (200 mph). It would old that title until 2008, when the One-77 hypercar was launched.

Now, anyone out there with a sufficiently deep wallet and an appreciation for British sports cars can bid on this 2006 example, which has 15,000 miles (24,140 km) on its 5.9-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine – and a BMW Carbon Black paint job to boot. Which might prove to be a nice selling point, as it tends to look both black and blue depending on the ambient lighting.

The Bring a Trailer ad states that the car is both accident and damage-free, and that the current seller only added about 1,200 miles (1,931 km) on it. It also features brand new tires on its 19-inch alloy wheels and has recently undergone an oil change.

Step inside this Vanquish S and you’ll undoubtedly realize that you’re in a luxury grand tourer, rather than a traditional sports car or supercar. The cabin is upholstered in Bentley Saddle leather and boasts aluminum trim on the door panels, center console and on the paddle shifters.

Other features include dark blue lower carpets and floor mats, tan Alcantara headliner, rain-sensing wipers, a 700W premium sound system, electric front seats with lumbar adjustment, power windows and mirrors, a sat-nav system, Bluetooth and a tire pressure monitoring, to name a few.

As for performance, the Vanquish S’ naturally aspirated V12 is churning out 527 PS (520 HP) and 425 lb-ft (576 Nm) of torque. At the time of writing, the highest bid stood at $62,000, with two days left until the auction closes.

    While not perfect, this era Vanquish is to me, the most beautiful car ever made. There are many other beautiful cars out there, but I feel that this one manages to do so holistically, and timelessly in a way that none of the others can match.
