Former James Bond, Pierce Brosnan, is a proud owner of the Aston Martin V12 Vanquish. It was designed in 1995 by Ian Callum. The Vanquish is powered by a 5.9hp. It has a top speed of 190mph. This powerful vehicle really had Brosnan. In fact it actually rose to fame after being featured as Brosnan’s official James Bond car in Die Another Day, the twentieth James Bond film. In the film, the Vanquish has the usual Bond film embellishments, including an active camouflage which rendered the vehicle virtually invisible, giving it the nickname “the Vanish”.
