Aston Martin Vanquish Ultimate revealed


The Vanquish S Ultimate Coupe costs from £211,995, and the convertible Volante from £223,995, and is now available to order from Aston's United Kingdom dealers, with first cars due in early 2018.

The Ultimate comes with a choice of three bespoke themes, with a black Vanquish with bronze graphics, black leather, bronze stitching and black callipers, a grey auto with blue accents, grey leather, blue stitching and yellow callipers, and a White Gold vehicle with Bronze graphics, gloss black detailing Chestnut leather with black highlights and carbon fibre fascia.

Priced at 211,995 pounds the Vanquish S Ultimate Coupe, and 223,995 pounds for the Volante, the Ultimate models cost just 12,045 pounds more than the regular S equivalents. There's also black exhaust tips and a variety of black exterior trim, along with an Obsidian Black leather interior with Chestnut Tan accents and a carbon fiber dash.

The current generation was rolled out in 2012 and deliveries of this Ultimate Edition at the start of 2018 will bring the curtain down on its career.

According to Auto Express, the Ultimate edition is expected to be the last new model to feature Aston Martin's naturally aspirated V12 "stalwart", as the company has moved over to AMG-developed twin-turbo engines in its other most recent cars. Being limited to just 175 cars worldwide, the Ultimate edition is available in Coupe or Volante form.

The second design boasts Xenon Grey paint and contrasting Cobalt Blue graphics on the outside. This too will feature carbon black accents.

The inside echoes the same theme with grey leather upholstery, yellow accents and blue contrast stitching.

It also gets carbon fibre door sills fitted with a model-specific plaque and bespoke stitched seat quilting, while the Ultimate name is embroidered on the headrests.

If the designer themes are not your thing, customers are welcome to spec their Vanquish S Ultimate edition combining any exterior scheme and interior package as a no-cost option.

The vehicle you see here features the Ultimate Black paint with bronze graphics and black interior with chestnut stitching.

"With the Ultimate Edition we have accentuated the Vanquish S's unique blend of tradition, technology and craftsmanship with a selection of three bold exterior paint schemes and hugely appealing interior packages that make creative use of exciting materials", Reichman says.
