The Aston Martin Vanquish S Ultimate Is A 595-HP Goodbye Present

Special Edition

A new Vanquish will arrive soon, but we'll miss this one.

Limited to just 175 examples, the Aston Martin Vanquish S Ultimate Coupe and Volante celebrate the final phase of UK brand’s flagship’s lifecycle. And no, Tom Brady wasn't involved with this one. Before its redesigned successor arrives, Aston Martin wisely felt it necessary to create this special edition, perhaps the final model to be powered by the naturally aspirated 6.0-liter V12 with 595 hp. An eight-speed Tiptronic automatic is standard fare while 3-stage adaptive damping and carbon ceramic brakes round off the package.

Just three exterior color design themes are being offered, all of which include carbon fiber side strakes with rose gold ‘Ultimate’ decals, carbon fiber treadplates, an ‘Ultimate’ sill plaque, and a special stitched quilting seat design with unique embroidery. The first exterior design theme buyers can opt for is a monochrome design with Ultimate Black paintwork with Copper Bronze graphics around the front air intake, side sills and on the rear diffuser. There’s also black exhaust tailpipes, brake calipers, window trims and 5-spoke wheels. The interior is covered in Obsidian Black leather with Chestnut Tan accents.

The second theme features Xenom Grey paint and contrasting Cobalt Blue graphics paired to the same black trim. Yellow brake calipers have been added while Phantom Grey leather upholstery is found inside. Lastly, there’s the White Gold paint with warm Bronze graphics, paired with gloss black and carbon fiber detailing. The interior features that Chestnut Tan leather with Obsidian Black accents. Aston Martin adds that if buyers don’t find any of these themes appealing, they can come up with their own custom exterior and interior packages at no-cost. Pricing begins at 278,995 Euros for the Coupe and 293,995 Euros for the Volante. Order are now being taken for early 2018 deliveries for European buyers only.
