Aston Martin Vanquish S Ultimate revealed as a swansong for the GT

Aston Martin Vanquish S Ultimate edition to give V12 GT a fitting send-off

The Coupé version is priced from £211,995 in the United Kingdom (€278,995 in Germany) and the Volante is priced at £223,995 in the United Kingdom (€293,995 in Germany). The first of these Designer Themes is a monochrome design that mates Ultimate Black paintwork - a nod to the first generation Vanquish S Ultimate Edition, for which this colour was first created - with Copper Bronze graphics around the front air intake, along the side sills and on the rear diffuser.

It's likely to be the final Aston Martin produced to be powered by Aston's 5.9-litre naturally-aspirated V12 making 443kW, with the next version to use either the new 5.2L twin-turbocharged V12 or the Mercedes-AMG sourced biturbo V8. Inside it features black leather with tan accents. Deliveries are expected to take place in 2018. This is one of the last Vanquish models that Aston Martin will make.

Less covert is the sportswear inspired trim theme that adds flecks of Cobalt Blue to the Zenon Grey body colour. Chestnut Tan leather with Obsidian Black accents and cuprum carbon fibre facia are the major highlights. Inside it gets grey leather upholstery with electron yellow and blue detailing to match the exterior.




Besides the unique color and trim packages for the Ultimate edition, there are also many different details unique to this special Vanquish S. These include carbon fiber side strakes featuring rose gold "ultimate" decals, carbon fiber treadplates and an "ultimate" sill plaque, a special stitched quilting design on the seats and "ultimate" headrest embroidery. The eight-speed Touchtronic III automatic transmission can send the GT to a 100kmph from standstill in 3.5seconds and a top speed of 325kmph. In addition to the Designer Themes, customers can choose to combine any exterior scheme and interior package.

The third - and most striking - of the special colour schemes has white-gold paint with bronze graphics, combined with the black tailpipes, brake callipers, window trims and wheels, and carbon-fibre bonnet louvres, grille and side strakes that distinguish all three colour palettes.

"As the much-loved and highly-acclaimed Vanquish S nears the end of production, we wanted to celebrate its success with a limited run of very special cars", Aston Martin Vice President and Chief Sales Officer Christian Marti said in a statement.
