To celebrate the 60th anniversary of Aston Martin Works, the British brand
will unveil six Vanquish-based special
The first of the cars in based on the Vanquish Volante and was revealed at the Buckinghamshire-based firm's customer Christmas celebration yesterday, which also forms the start of 12 months of anniversary activity at Aston Martin Works.
The six bespoke cars, all versions of the current Vanquish super GT in either Coupe or Volante form, are being created in association with the luxury British brand's Gaydon-based design team, and its ultimate personalization service: Q by Aston Martin.
A number of elements distinguish the Anniversary cars, but the most emotive part comes in the form of a fine detail: bespoke rotaries around the major controls in the center console of each Vanquish. Each rotary has been cast from metal that, previously, had formed a piston in an Aston Martin engine of the relevant period. These rotaries are then carefully laser etched with Works' Anniversary wording.
Other unique features in the Anniversary cars include: distinctive Anniversary Yellow accents on the side strakes and alloy wheels, White/black Duotone seat center panels, unique sill plaques depicting the era the car relates to and featuring the Works Anniversary logo, distinctive color and trim treatments that include features such as contrast yellow stitching in the leather, and new heavy weave carbon fiber.
The cars retain the standard technical features of the Vanquish super GT such as its 6.0-liter V12 petrol engine mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
