Rare Concours Aston Martin Vanquish Joins Yokohama at The Classic

The unique Concours-winning Aston Martin V12 Vanquish will join premium tyre manufacturer, Yokohama, at Silverstone circuit for Europe’s biggest historic racing festival, The Classic, this bank holiday weekend.

The unique Vanquish in Chiltern Green exterior, paired with a charcoal interior and charcoal headlining, was also fitted from factory with the Sports Dynamic Pack.

In 2001 following the launch of the car, Yokohama’s AVS Sport tyres were fitted by Aston Martin on the V12 Vanquish as original equipment and were marked with “AML” on the sidewalls as validation of the company’s approval for homologation.

Designed by automotive royalty, Ian Callum, this V12 Vanquish features the British designer’s signature on the car’s beauty panel, and proudly represented the designer in the London Concours at The Royal British Artillery Company in London in 2021.

The car was also awarded first place at the Aston Martin Owners Club (AMOC) 2019 Autumn Concours.

Pictured in Vantage Magazine’s 2018 Spring Edition for its Project Vantage feature, the car has become increasingly popular with Aston Martin enthusiasts throughout the years, having been pictured once again by the publication to feature in the 2021 Spring Edition for its ‘V12 Aston Shootout’ article.

James Brown, marketing manager at Yokohama HPT, said: “The Aston Martin Vanquish is a truly beautiful car and to have such a rare example join us at The Classic is incredibly exciting. The festival is famous for bringing vehicles from past and present together, and to have icons of British motoring like the V12 Vanquish join us on the Yokohama display this weekend at Silverstone circuit, is something that is truly amazing.”

Visitors attending The Classic can find the unique Aston Martin V12 Vanquish alongside other rare cars, and Yokohama, in purple zone 10, opposite the Village Green. For more information about The Classic, visit To find out more about the range of tyres available from Yokohama, visit
