Driving the V12 Vanquish with Les Goble

March 15, 2024

In co-operation with HWM Aston Martin, Walton on Thames, Les Goble the former Head of Performance Driving at Aston Martin Lagonda, revisits and drives the Newport Pagnell Aston Martin Vanquish V12.

In this video we dispel some of the myths that surround the Vanquish gearbox and also the later Sports Shift boxes.  Les take us on a drive explaining  how to get the best from the car whether on hill starts, driving in heavy traffic, very subtle changes to your driving technique to eliminate jerkiness and much more.

This video is also supported by an AMHT Podcast where Garry Taylor chats with Les about the perceived Vanquish gearbox issues and how to get the best driving experience from the Vanquish. Listen in on Episode 15 from the AMHT website at or via Apple Podcast and Spotify.
