Aston Martin Debuts Limited Edition Vanquish S Ultimate

Aston Martin Vanquish Ultimate revealed
Volante convertible models run from £223,995 in the United Kingdom and €293,995 in Germany. For the third theme, Aston Martin painted the Vanquish S in White Gold with bronze accents, set against a Chestnut Tan leather interior with black accents.
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.
Based on the Vanquish S, the Ultimate specification is limited to just 175 units globally, split between the coupe and drop-top Volante body styles. There's also black exhaust tips and a variety of black exterior trim, along with an Obsidian Black leather interior with Chestnut Tan accents and a carbon fiber dash.
The order books for the Vanquish S Ultimate are open now, with deliveries expected to commence in the first-quarter of 2018. All versions of the vehicle will also feature trim exclusive to the Vanquish S Ultimate, including carbon fiber side strakes, rose gold "Ultimate" decals, carbon fiber treadplates, an "Ultimate" sill plaque, special interior stitching and "Ultimate" embroidered headrests.
The second colour combination features Xenon grey paintwork with Cobalt blue graphics on the front air intake.
The auto will also feature an 8-speed automatic gearbox, adjustable dampers and carbon ceramic brakes.
"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". Look for "Ultimate" badges on the carbon fiber side strakes, seat headrests, and door sills. It also comes with yellow brake calipers and five-spoke wheels. On the inside a mix of Phantom Grey leather, Electron Yellow accents and Spectral Blue stitching dominate the luxury cabin.
As with the normal Vanquish S, the Ultimate comes with Aston Martin's flagship 6.0-litre V12 engine developing 595bhp, mated to an eight speed automatic transmission with manual shifting via paddles on the back of the steering wheel.
Aston Martin has said it will phase out the Vanquish in the near future, but before that happens, they have unveiled this limited edition model, dubbed the Vanquish S Ultimate.

I'm just anxious about my career. "I'm unsure if I'm still on the team", he told Jordan Brenner of SB Nation earlier in October. So the fact that I know that at the end of the season I would at least have an opportunity to play elsewhere, that's great.
