This is the Aston Martin Vanquish S Ultimate, a grand finale - lick'o paint - limited edition, just 175 examples worldwide to be precise. It's got everything expected of from an Aston Martin GT, the naturally-aspirated 6.0-litre V12, the 595bhp, a spectacular soundtrack, scintillating performance.
An 8-speed Touchtronic III automatic transmission has been developed to give response and refinement, while the 3-stage adaptive damping and carbon ceramic brakes complete the package.
Unique to the Ultimate is unique to model Black paintwork, 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.
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.
