Aston Martin Vanquish S Ultimate revealed as swan-song model

Aston Martin Vanquish S Ultimate revealed as swan-song model

Just 175 will be made, in either coupé or Volante convertible format, with special carbon-fibre side strakes embellished with rose gold "Ultimate" lettering, an "Ultimate" sill plaque, special stitched quilting design on the seats, and the "Ultimate" logo embroidered on the headrests. Official performance figures haven't been released, but it's likely the Ultimate will share the standard car's 3.5-second 0-62mph time and top speed of just over 200mph.

Enter the Ultimate edition, a limited-run series that makes Aston Martin's luxury grand tourer even more desirable.

Sounds hardcore, but the Vanquish S Ultimate remains a luxury auto, which is why it packs three-stage adaptive damping and carbon ceramic brakes that help bring it back to a standstill in the shortest time possible.

Aston Martin will produce a final-run of Vanquish S Ultimate edition cars signalling the end for the current Vanquish.

Nearly all trimmings are in black as well, such as the window trims, five-spoke allow wheels, exhaust outlets, and the eye-popping brake calipers.

Inside, the cabin showcases Obsidian Black leather with Chestnut Tan accents, with more carbon fibre used for the interior garnishes. The second theme, Sport Line, paints the vehicle Zenon Grey and adds Cobalt Blue graphics, with yellow and blue accents contrasting Phantom Grey leather inside.

Yellow brake calipers provide 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. One minor detail: prices start from £211,995 (UK) / €278,995 (Germany) for the Vanquish S Ultimate Edition Coupe and £223,995 (UK) / €293,995 (Germany) for the Volante.




To this effect, customers can "mix and match" each exterior design to an interior of their choosing.

Finally, the third Designer Theme consists of White Gold exterior paint with Bronze accents, standing out against the carbon-fibre exterior trims.

The interior trim is a flip-flop of the monochrome scheme, with black accents on tan leantwer upholstery, set off by a spectacular copper tinted carbon-fibre fascia.

"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".

"The Ultimate edition perfectly captures the spirit of Vanquish and is sure to be sought after by collectors around the world", he added.

No expenses are spared on this special edition Aston Martin.
