Van­quish. One of the world’s gre­at Su­per GTs and the quin­tes­sen­ti­al As­ton Mar­tin. To ce­le­bra­te this much-lo­ved and highly-ac­clai­med flagship as it en­ters the fi­nal pha­se of its pro­duc­ti­on life, As­ton Mar­tin has cre­a­ted a very spe­ci­al mo­del to bid a fa­rewell: The Van­quish S Ul­ti­ma­te.

Like the re­gu­lar Van­quish S, the Ul­ti­ma­te edi­ti­on is powe­red by As­ton Martin’s le­gen­dary na­tu­rally-as­pi­ra­ted 6.0-litre V12. With 595bhp and a spec­ta­cu­lar sound­track, scin­til­la­ting per­for­man­ce is gua­ran­te­ed. An 8-spe­ed Tou­ch­tro­nic III au­to­ma­tic trans­mis­si­on gi­ves an im­pres­si­ve com­bi­na­ti­on of res­pon­se and re­fi­ne­ment, whi­le 3-sta­ge adap­ti­ve dam­ping and car­bon ce­ra­mic bra­kes com­ple­te a pac­ka­ge born to de­li­ver one of the gre­at mo­dern dri­ving ex­pe­ri­en­ces.

Li­mi­ted to just 175 cars worldwi­de, the Ul­ti­ma­te edi­ti­on is avai­la­ble in Cou­pe or Vo­lan­te form and is avai­la­ble in a choi­ce of th­ree ex­te­ri­or co­lour sche­mes whi­ch have been thought­fully craf­ted by the As­ton Mar­tin de­sign team. In ad­di­ti­on to the spe­ci­ally cre­a­ted co­lour and trim pac­ka­ges the­re are a sui­te of de­tails that are also uni­que to the Van­quish S Ul­ti­ma­te. The­se in­clu­de car­bon fi­bre side stra­kes fe­a­tu­ring rose gold Ul­ti­ma­te‘ de­cals, car­bon fi­bre tre­ad­pla­tes and an Ul­ti­ma­te’ sill pla­que, a spe­ci­al stit­ched quil­ting de­sign on the se­ats, plus Ul­ti­ma­te’ he­a­drest em­broi­dery.

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. De­tai­ling in­clu­des black exhaust tail­pi­pes, bra­ke ca­li­pers, win­dow trims and 5-spo­ke whe­els, plus ex­ten­si­ve use of car­bon fi­bre for the bon­net lou­vres, front gril­le and side stra­kes. The in­te­ri­or fe­a­tu­res Ob­si­di­an Black le­ather with Chest­nut Tan ac­cents and stit­ching and car­bon fi­bre twill fa­cia.

The se­cond De­sig­ner The­me ta­kes ins­pi­ra­ti­on from the look and ma­te­ri­als used in te­ch­ni­cal sportswe­ar. The stri­king com­bi­na­ti­on of Xe­non Grey paint and con­tras­ting Co­balt Blue graphics com­bi­ne per­fec­tly with the Ultimate’s car­bon fi­bre and black trim. Yel­low bra­ke ca­li­pers pro­vi­de further con­trast behind gloss black 5-spo­ke al­loys. The same fa­mily of ex­te­ri­or hues con­ti­nue to the in­te­ri­or, whe­re Elec­tron Yel­low ac­cents and Spec­tral Blue stit­ching stand out against the Phan­tom Grey le­ather uphols­tery.

The third of the De­sig­ner The­mes con­sists of cool Whi­te Gold paintwork and warm Bron­ze graphics wor­king bril­li­an­tly with gloss black and car­bon fi­bre ex­te­ri­or de­tai­ling. Chest­nut Tan le­ather with Ob­si­di­an Black ac­cents puts a con­tem­po­rary twist on a tra­di­ti­o­nal co­lour com­bi­na­ti­on, whi­le the spec­ta­cu­lar cu­prum car­bon fi­bre fa­cia is a vi­su­al de­light.

In ad­di­ti­on to the De­sig­ner The­mes, cus­to­mers can elect to com­bi­ne any ex­te­ri­or sche­me and in­te­ri­or pac­ka­ge as a no-cost op­ti­on.

Ma­rek Rei­ch­man, As­ton Mar­tin Chi­ef Cre­a­ti­ve Of­fi­cer, said: With the Ul­ti­ma­te Edi­ti­on we have ac­cen­tu­a­ted the Van­quish S’s uni­que blend of tra­di­ti­on, te­ch­no­logy and crafts­manship with a se­lec­ti­on of th­ree bold ex­te­ri­or paint sche­mes and hu­gely ap­pe­a­ling in­te­ri­or pac­ka­ges that make cre­a­ti­ve use of ex­ci­ting ma­te­ri­als. 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”.

As­ton Mar­tin VP & Chi­ef Sa­les Of­fi­cer, Ch­ris­ti­an Mar­ti said of the Van­quish S Ul­ti­ma­te Edi­ti­on: Sin­ce the Van­quish was first in­tro­du­ced it im­me­di­a­tely es­ta­blished it­self as the pin­na­cle of our se­ri­es pro­duc­ti­on ran­ge. It has sin­ce evol­ved into a truly for­mi­da­ble ma­chi­ne. 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. The Ul­ti­ma­te edi­ti­on per­fec­tly cap­tu­res the spi­rit of Van­quish and is sure to be sought af­ter by col­lec­tors around the world”.
