Viewed from a distance, the Aston Martin Callum Vanquish 25 may look just like any other Vanquish built between 2001 and 2007. Look a little closer, however, and a number of differences become obvious.
Created thanks to a collaboration between former Aston Martin designer Ian Callum and R-Reforged from Switzerland, the car comes 25 years after Callum first started designing the original Vanquish. Just 25 examples are bound for the production line and YouTuber Mr JWW recently had the chance to check one out in person and take it out for a drive.
More than 100 changes have been made to the updated Vanquish 25 when compared to the original. They include new front and rear bumpers made from lightweight carbon fiber, a re-designed front grille, headlights and taillights that have been updated with LED units, and a set of forged wheels.
During the review, Mr JWW talks about some of the key design changes in detail. For example, the new front grille isn’t made from plastic like so many other cars and instead has horizontal slats made from billet aluminum that have a black chrome finish. There is also a new hood with four small cooling vents to ensure the engine can breathe freely.
Various updates have also been made to the interior, including a new infotainment system that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Like the original car, the Vanquish 25 is powered by a 6.0-liter naturally aspirated V12, only not it delivers 580 hp, a full 60 hp more than before.
