Aston Martin Vanquish S Ultimate unveiled

Aston Martin Vanquish S Ultimate edition to give V12 GT a fitting send-off Aston Martin Vanquish Ultimate revealed
June Sullivan | 02 November, 2017, 01:06

The Aston Martin Vanquish S Ultimate coupe starts at £211,995, while the Volante convertible is priced from £223,995 - about £10,000 more than the standard version of each.

You can order your Vanquish S Ultimate in any colour you want, but Aston Martin has also created three special colour schemes, available only on this model, which will make it just that little bit more special. The Aston Martin Vanquish S Ultimate Edition is powered by the legendary naturally-aspirated 6.0L V12 engine with maximum power of 595bhp and a spectacular soundtrack.

The Vanquish S Ultimate, which will be limited to just 175 cars worldwide, will be available in three different "Designer Themes", that have been carefully crafted and curated by the Aston Martin design team. All cars come with a unique "Ultimate" quilting design and headrest embroidery, Carbonfibre side strakes, carbonfibre treadplates and an Ultimate sill plaque.

The final version has white gold bodywork with bronze graphics, which is paired with tan leather upholstery with black accents. Black exhaust tips, brake calipers and window-trims also feature, while the carbonfibre grille, side strakes and bonnet louvres blend discreetly into the dark ensemble. Each package comes with an interior design to compliment it, from Obsidian Black with Chestnut Tan accents, to Chestnut Tan with Obsidian Black accents - seriously - via Phantom Grey with yellow accents and blue stitching. 175 Ultimate edition, coupes or Volantes, will roll off the Gaydon production line due for delivery in 2018. Yellow brake calipers provide further contrast behind gloss black 5-spoke alloys.

European deliveries are scheduled to commence in the first quarter of 2018, with the Vanquish S Ultimate priced from 211,995 pounds ($367,111) in the United Kingdom and 293,995 euros ($446,063) in Germany.

The auto you see here features the Ultimate Black paint with bronze graphics and black interior with chestnut stitching. The eight-speed Touchtronic III automatic transmission can send the GT to a 100kmph from standstill in 3.5seconds and a top speed of 325kmph.

"As the much-loved and highly-acclaimed Vanquish S nears the end of production, we wanted to celebrate its success with a limited run of very special cars", Aston Martin Vice President and Chief Sales Officer Christian Marti said in a statement.
