Aston Martin Manila Taking Orders for Vanquish S's Farewell Model

One of the world’s great GTs and the quintessential Aston Martin is entering the final phase of its production life. And as the world is bidding goodbye to the Vanquish, the British supercar maker is now taking orders (including its distributor in Manila) for the limited 175 run of the Vanquish S Ultimate.

Like the regular Vanquish S, the Ultimate edition is powered by a naturally-aspirated 6.0-liter V12 engine with 595 horsepower. Mated to this engine is an 8-speed automatic transmission. Further refinement comes courtesy of a 3-stage adaptive damping in the suspension and carbon ceramic brakes.

The Ultimate Edition is available in Coupe or Volante (top-down) form and is available in a choice of three exterior color schemes. In addition to the specially created color and trim packages there are a suite of details that are also unique to the Vanquish S Ultimate. These include carbon fiber side strakes featuring rose gold ‘Ultimate‘ decals, carbon fiber tread plates 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 color 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 fiber for the hood louvers, front grille and side strakes. The interior features Obsidian Black leather with Chestnut Tan accents and stitching and carbon fiber twill fascia.

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 with the Ultimate’s carbon fiber 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 with gloss black and carbon fiber exterior detailing. Chestnut Tan leather with Obsidian Black accents puts a contemporary twist on a traditional color combination, while carbon fiber fascia makes for 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.

Aston Martin Manila is taking orders for the Vanquish S Ultimate Edition with deliveries to start by the first quarter of 2018.
