Aston Martin gives Vanquish S the Ultimate send-off


With production winding down after a mere five years, Aston Martin has unveiled a limited edition tribute version of the Vanquish S.

Limited to just 175 units globally and available in either Coupe or drop-top Volante forms, the Vanquish S Ultimate Edition features carbon fibre sills with rose gold Ultimate badging, carbon fibre tread plates with Ultimate detailing, quilted stitched seats with Ultimate embroidered headrests and a choice of three bespoke packages known as Designer Themes.

Said to have been specially selected for the Ultimate, the first Designer Theme pays homage to the original Vanquish S Ultimate Edition, and consists of Copper Bronze detailing on the front air intake, on the diffuser and side sills, black exhaust outlets and brake calipers, carbon fibre bonnet louvers and grille, Ultimate Black paint finish and on the inside, Obsidian Black leather with Chestnut Tan accents and stitched carbon fibre dashboard inserts.

Customers wanting a sportier look can opt for the second Designer Theme claimed to have been inspired by technical sportswear, which is made up of Xenon Grey paint with Cobalt Blue graphics, gloss black five-spoke alloy wheels, yellow brake calipers and Phantom Black leather interior trim with Spectral Blue stitching and Electron Yellow inserts.

The final Designer Theme meanwhile is made up of gloss black carbon fibre detailing, cool White Gold paint with Bronze graphics, Chestnut Tan leather interior with Obsidian Black inserts and carbon fibre detailing.

Up front, the Ultimate remains unchanged with the 6.0-litre designated 5.9-litre V12 engine still producing 444 kW and 630 Nm of torque, and mated to a eight-speed Touchtronic automatic gearbox.

Deliveries are due to kick-off in the first quarter of 2018 with pricing for the Coupe in the UK starting at £211 995 (R3 987 180) and at £223 995 (R4 212 875) for the Volante.
