Aston Martin V12 Vanquish 2001-2007
This model is represented in Forza Motorsport as the:
2001 Aston Martin V12 Vanquish (FM1 to FM4 and FM 2023)
The first model designed around Aston Martin’s newly introduced V12 engine, the Vanquish brought the iconic British firm into the 21st century. That has its downsides, like the automated manual gearbox, but also many upsides. The chassis is aluminium, with a carbon fiber backbone, developed by Lotus. The engine develops 520 hp in the Vanquish S configuration, which also received a new front splitter and an optional Sports Dynamic Package, including stiffer suspension, revised steering, and larger brakes. There was also a one-off roadster by Zagato, and a one-off shooting brake by Bertone. Recently, the car’s designer Ian Callum has announced plans to bring back the Vanquish, releasing a run of 25 updated variants of one of his favourite designs. The power is up to 580 hp, and a manual transmission is offered by Aston Martin Works. Both cars deserved to be in Forza, as they are important parts of Aston Martin’s history.
If they keep it up like this FM8 will have a car list as awesome as FM4!
Aston Martin offered owners a factory conversion to manual. Didn’t even cost that much, about £25,000. Which I think is a steal considering AM does it themselves and it will also increase the value of the car.
