Three bespoke touches are developed for the 175-vehicle run to offer customers maximum choices

British coveted sportscar maker, Aston Martin, famed for creating the future of grand tourers and race cars, will be proudly unleashing a very ultimate edition of its current flagship super GT model in limited runs – the Vanquish S – in three design themes.

The new grand tourer model takes performance reference from the previous Vanquish S Coupe and Volante and add accents to the new Vanquish S’ uniqueness by marrying across three styles: of heritage, technology and artisanship, to give birth to a new star that will excite the senses, and each to his own, definitely worth the wait.

“As the much-loved and highly-acclaimed Vanquish S nears the end of production, we wanted to celebrate its success with a limited run of very special cars. The Ultimate edition perfectly captures the spirit of Vanquish.” – Aston Martin VP, Christian Marti

The new design of Vanquish S will see subtle changes to the sculpted body and interior aesthetic, including the fitted of carbon fibre side strakes to rectify the airflow around the wheels, and new rose-gold ‘Ultimate’ vehicle decal will style part of the exterior.

What will retain will be the same transmission, carbon chassis fiber and braking set up and the 6-litre, 595bhp, V12 engine that powers the previous Aston’s Vanquish S Coupe and Volante.

New quilting design for the leather seats

Three unique design themes have been carefully selected to ensure each exterior colour works brilliantly to complement the interior scheme.

Inside the grand tourer, Aston’s high-level of craftsmanship starts with the single Ultimate Black tone effect to contrast with copper bronze detailing around the front air intake and rear diffuser. The same effect is applied to the interior, featuring the seats enveloped in obsidian black leather and outlined by chestnut tan with carbon fibre twill facia and accent stitching.

The second takes inspiration from the look and materials used in technical sportswear. Combining Xenon Grey paint with contrasting Cobalt Blue, the exterior blends tastefully with Ultimate’s carbon fibre and black trim. The copper bronze detailing remains while the interior exudes electron Yellow accents and spectral blue stitching juxtapose against the leather upholstery in phantom grey. And Chestnut tan puts a modern twist to stand out against the black leather accents with detailing.

The third is the strongest in terms of the colour palette, featuring grey paint finish accented with cobalt blue detailing, plus bright yellow brake callipers. Inside, the seats are wrapped in grey leather and highlighted with yellow and blue detailing.

The unique detailing run through to the window trims and 5-spoke wheels, plus extensive use of carbon fibre for the bonnet louvres, front grille and side strakes

Aston Martin owner can also tailor the car experience with bespoke touches to make it uniquely theirs at the company’s Q division.

Available in three striking paint schemes, you will have to act fast if you want to get your hand on the new Vanquish S Ultimate since only 175 editions will be produced. Orders are now being taken with first deliveries scheduled for early 2018.
