- Compared to the DBS, passenger space has increased with legroom up 37mm, shoulder room 25mm, elbow room 87mm and knee room 50mm while dash panel has moved forward 20mm.
- The weave patterns on the exposed carbon fiber body components have been carefully selected to present the most consistent surfaces.
- The car's front-mid mounted engine and rear-mid mounted transaxle provide a near perfect weight distribution with 85 percent of the car's weight positioned within its wheelbase.
- The Vanquish is fitted with new generation Pirelli P-Zero tires that have been developed especially for the car, along with new 20-inch lightweight alloy wheels.
- The braking is a third generation Brembo Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) system which features 398 mm x 36 mm front brake discs with larger front brake pads and six-piston brake callipers from the One-77, while the rear brakes use 360 mm x 32 mm brake discs with a four-piston calliper.
