Aston Martin creates Ultimate Vanquish

Aidan Rennie-Jones

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.
