Aston Martin creates Ultimate Vanquish
Aston Martin has lifted the lid on a special edition of its flagship Vanquish S. Called the Ultimate, it has been designed as a final hurrah before the model is replaced.
As with the normal Vanquish S, the Ultimate comes with Aston Martin's flagship 6.0-litre V12 engine developing 595bhp, mated to an eight speed automatic transmission with manual shifting via paddles on the back of the steering wheel.
The Ultimate will be a limited to just 175 coupe and convertible versions worldwide.
There will be a choice of three colour schemes. These consist of a monochrome design with black paintwork, copper bronze graphics on the front air intake, side sills and rear defuser, and carbon-fibre bonnet louvres to name a few. Inside it features black leather with tan accents.
The second colour combination features Xenon grey paintwork with Cobalt blue graphics on the front air intake. It also adds yellow brake calipers and gloss black alloys. Inside it will feature grey leather upholstery.
The final colour is white gold paintwork with bronze graphics. This too will feature carbon black accents. Inside, the seats will be finished in Chesnut tan leather with black accenting.
Marek Reichman, Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer, said: "With the Ultimate Edition we have accentuated the Vanquish S's unique blend of tradition, technology and craftsmanship with a selection of three bold exterior paint schemes and hugely appealing interior packages that make creative use of exciting materials.
"Our design team has created three unique themes which unite an exterior and interior package, but we have been careful to ensure each exterior colour and interior theme work well together to offer our customers maximum choice".
Orders are now being taken, with the Coupe costing from £211,995 and the Volante costing from £233,995. Deliveries are expected to take place in 2018.
