British luxury sportscar maker Aston Martin has announced details of a very special final edition of its current flagship model, the Vanquish S, which is destined to get the company's biggest fans reaching for the phone. The Vanquish S Ultimate will be capped at just 175 editions and offered in three unique design themes.
Under the hood, the engine will remain the same — Aston's own 6-litre, 595bhp V12 — as will the transmission, chassis, and braking set up. But where the new model will differ is with a host of subtle exterior and interior aesthetic details.
As for what each design theme will offer, the first is about the play of monochrome tones. It comes with a black exterior paint finish including wheels, brake calipers, and exhausts, but the single tone is offset with copper bronze detailing around the front air intake and rear diffuser. The same effect is achieved for the interior by dressing the seats in black leather with chestnut tan contrasting details and stitching.
The second is essentially the inverse of the first with white replacing black for the exterior while maintaining the copper bronze detailing and in the cabin too. The seats are Chestnut tan with black leather accents and detailing.
The third is the strongest in terms of the colour palette of all the styles Aston has developed for the 175- vehicle run. It comes with a grey paint finish with contrasting cobalt blue detailing plus bright yellow brake callipers. Inside, the seats are finished in grey leather with yellow and blue detailing.
