  • Ultimate edition marks the end for Aston's Vanquish

Like the regular Vanquish S, the Ultimate edition is powered by Aston Martin's naturally-aspirated 6.0-litre V12 breathing out 595bhp.

Aston Martin is in the midst of refreshing its entire product line, which is undoubtedly a good thing, but it does mean we have to say goodbye to some excellent cars.

The manufacturer offers the Ultimate edition in three "Designer Themes" to fit to the Vanquish S - with rose gold "Ultimate" decals being applied to throughout the vehicle.

Based on the Vanquish S, the Ultimate specification is limited to just 175 units globally, split between the coupe and drop-top Volante body styles.

Inside, the Ultimate Black theme gets Obsidian Black leather with Chestnut Tan accents, and a carbon-fibre twill fascia trim.


THEY call it the Ultimate and, at prices up to £223,995, this is undoubtedly the ultimate run-out special edition. Detailing includes blacked-out exhaust pipes, brake calipers, window trims and 5-spoke wheels.

"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 second colour combination features Xenon grey paintwork with Cobalt blue graphics on the front air intake. Chestnut Tan leather with Obsidian Black accents and cuprum carbon fibre facia are the major highlights. Aston Martin will allow customers to mix and match any exterior scheme and interior package for no extra cost. These include the carbon fibre side strakes with rose gold "Ultimate" decals, bespoke stitching, and carbon fibre tread plates, along with "Ultimate" headrest embroidery and sill plaques.

The inside echoes the same theme with grey leather upholstery, yellow accents and blue contrast stitching. The third of the Designer Themes consists of cool White Gold paintwork and warm Bronze graphics alongside gloss black and carbon fibre exterior detailing. It is linked to an 8-speed Touchtronic III automatic transmission with 3-stage adaptive damping and carbon ceramic brakes as standard fitment.

Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman, said of the vehicle, "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".
