Aston Martin has introduced the Vanquish S Ultimate to commemorate the Super GT model’s final phase of production life. Like the regular Vanquish S, the Ultimate edition is powered by Aston Martin’s legendary naturally-aspirated 6.0-liter V12. With 595bhp and a spectacular soundtrack, scintillating performance is guaranteed. An 8-speed Touchtronic III automatic transmission gives an impressive combination of response and refinement, while 3-stage adaptive damping and carbon ceramic brakes complete a package born to deliver one of the great modern driving experiences.
Limited to just 175 cars worldwide, the Aston Martin Vanquish S Ultimate edition is available in Coupe or Volante form and is available in a choice of three exterior color schemes which have been thoughtfully crafted by the Aston Martin design team. I
n addition to the specially created color and trim packages there are a suite of details that are also unique to the Vanquish S Ultimate. These include carbon fiber side strakes featuring rose gold ‘Ultimate‘ decals, carbon fiber treadplates and an ‘Ultimate’ sill plaque, a special stitched quilting design on the seats, plus ‘Ultimate’ headrest embroidery.
The first of these Designer Themes is a monochrome design that mates Ultimate Black paintwork, a nod to the first generation Vanquish S Ultimate Edition, for which this color was first created, with Copper Bronze graphics around the front air intake, along the 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 fiber for the bonnet louvres, front grille and side strakes. The interior features Obsidian Black leather with Chestnut Tan accents and stitching and carbon fiber twill facia.
The second Designer Theme takes inspiration from the look and materials used in technical sportswear. The striking combination of Xenon Grey paint and contrasting Cobalt Blue graphics combine perfectly with the Ultimate’s carbon fiber 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 Designer Themes consists of cool White Gold paintwork and warm Bronze graphics working brilliantly with gloss black and carbon fiber exterior detailing. Chestnut Tan leather with Obsidian Black accents puts a contemporary twist on a traditional color combination, while the spectacular cuprum carbon fibre facia is a visual delight.
In addition to the Designer Themes, customers can elect to combine any exterior scheme and interior package as a no-cost option.
This special collector’s Aston Martin model is priced from 278,995 euros for the Vanquish S Ultimate Edition Coupe, and 293,995 euros for the Volante. Deliveries are expected to commence from first quarter of 2018.
