Aston Martin bids farewell to the Vanquish S nameplate with limited-run Ultimate edition

November 8, 2017

Aston Martin will soon end its production of the Vanquish S, its flagship super GT. As final salute to the successful nameplate, the British carmaker has introduced the Vanquish S Ultimate, a special edition that’s made extra unique and memorable with bespoke details inside and out.

To start things off, the Ultimate features carbon fiber side strakes with Rose Gold-painted Ultimate decals that make it look sportier and more elegant. Complimenting this is are tread plates made of carbon fiber, side sill plate plaques bearing the Ultimate logo, and a special quilted seat design with headrests showing the Ultimate badge.

But the most defining unique feature of the Aston Martin Vanquish S Ultimate is its 3 available trims called Designer Themes which customers can mix and match to suit their liking... for free.

The first theme comes with an Ultimate Black paintwork that gives nod to the first generation Vanquish S’ styling. It includes unique details like Copper Bronze graphics on the front air intake, side sills, and rear diffuser. It also has blacked out window trims, exhaust tips, brake callipers, and 5-spoke wheels. As an added touch of aggression, an abundance of carbon fiber can be seen on the hood inlets and grille. Inside, this theme boasts plentiful amounts of black leather, accented with Chestnut Tan.

The second theme, meanwhile, features sleek Xenon Grey paintwork with striking Cobalt Blue accents. This is levelled up with a set of brake callipers painted in yellow. On the inside, the same “sportswear” theme continues with a leather interior wrapped in Phantom Grey with Electron Yellow accents and Spectral Blue stitching throughout.

Lastly, the third theme pleases the eye with a White Gold paint scheme that’s made to stand out with the help of Bronze graphics. On the other hand, the cabin beckons its occupants with Chestnut Tan leather seats and panels with Obsidian Black accents for that modern, contemporary look.

The Aston Martin Vanquish S Ultimate is available in coupe and Volante (open-top) forms. Being a limited-run version of the soon-to-be discontinued nameplate, Aston Martin will only produce 175 examples of the Ultimate on a global scale, making it a rare collector’s item. Interested buyers will have to wait until Q1 of 2018 to get their hands on this automotive masterpiece.
