To mark the final phase of production of its second-generation Vanquish S flagship model – first introduced in 2012 – Aston Martin is launching a special run-out edition; the Vanquish S Ultimate.
This Vanquish S Ultimate edition will be powered by Aston Martin’s naturally-aspirated 595 bhp 6.0-litre V12, mated to an 8-speed TouchtronicIII automatic transmission.
Limited to just 175 examples worldwide, the Ultimate edition will be offered in Coupe or Volante body styles, with a choice of three exterior colour schemes, created by the Aston Martin design team. In addition to these special colour and trim packages, Aston Martin also has also created a suite of details that are unique to the Vanquish S Ultimate. These include carbon fibre side strakes featuring rose gold ‘Ultimate‘ decals, carbon fibre tread plates with an ‘Ultimate’ sill plaque, a special stitched quilting design on the seats, plus ‘Ultimate’ headrest embroidery.
Three ‘Designer Themes’ will be available, the first of these being a monochrome design that mates Ultimate Black paintwork – a nod to the first generation Vanquish S Ultimate Edition, for which this colour was first created – with Copper Bronze graphics around the front air intake, side sills and on the rear diffuser. Detailing includes black exhaust tailpipes, brake calipers, window trims and 5-spoke wheels, plus extensive use of carbon fibre for the bonnet louvres, front grille and side strakes. The interior features Obsidian Black leather with Chestnut Tan accents and stitching and carbon fibre twill facia.
The second Ultimate Designer Theme takes inspiration from the look and materials used in technical sportswear, with a combination of Xenon Grey paint and contrasting Cobalt Blue graphics, to harmoniously match the Ultimate’s carbon fibre and black trim. Yellow brake calipers provide further contrast behind gloss black 5-spoke alloys. The same family of exterior hues continue to the interior, where Electron Yellow accents and Spectral Blue stitching stand out against the Phantom Grey leather upholstery.
The third of the special Aston Martin Designer Themes consists of White Gold paintwork and bronze graphics working with gloss black and carbon fibre exterior detailing. Chestnut Tan leather with Obsidian Black accents puts a contemporary twist on a traditional colour combination, with a cuprum carbon fibre facia.
In addition to the Designer Themes, customers can elect to combine any exterior scheme and interior package as a no-cost option, with these special final-edition Vanquish S models available priced at £211,995 (UK) for the Ultimate Edition Coupe, and £223,995 (UK) for the Volante. Orders are now being taken, with first deliveries scheduled for the first quarter of 2018.
