Aston Martin Vanquish Ultimate revealed

Aston Martin’s Vanquish Ultimate aims to celebrate Gaydon’s V12-powered GT flagship.

With a 444kW 6.0-litre atmo under the bonnet and three unique designer themes, don’t expect they’ll be available for long —  especially when Aston Martin is only building 175 of the things.

Available as both Coupe and Volante drop-top, the Vanquish Ultimate comes in different colour and trim packages to suit the customer’s taste.

The first of the three sets of styles comes in an Ultimate Black exterior (a nod to the first Vanquish S Ultimate Edition), with an Obsidian Black leather interior featuring Chestnut Tan accents.

The second pack is a Xenon Grey paintwork paired with Phantom Grey leather upholstery and blue stitching, complete with yellow accents throughout the cabin.

Aston Martin chief creative officer Marek Reichman says creating the unique interiors and themes was challenging, especially considering some customers will want to further customise their cars.

To this effect, customers can ‘mix and match’ each exterior design to an interior of their choosing.

“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 Ultimate will set UK buyers back £211,995 ($367,890 AUD) or an extra £12,000 ($20,800) for the Volante, but no information for potential Australian buyers is available.
