Aston Martin is in the midst of refreshing its entire product line, which is undoubtedly a good thing, but it does mean we have to say goodbye to some excellent cars. Built to "celebrate this much loved and highly acclaimed flagship as it enters the final phase of its production life", the Ultimate will be limited to just 175 coupe and Volante convertible examples. 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.

Three separate Ultimate edition packages pair exterior finishes with interior trims in distinctly different combinations. Orders are being taken now, with first deliveries expected at the start of next year. The Vanquish S Ultimate will be powered by the naturally-aspirated 6.0-liter V12 carried over from the regular Vanquish S model.

The second design boasts Xenon Grey paint and contrasting Cobalt Blue graphics on the outside. The interior is similar to that of the first designer theme, but with Chestnut Tan as the main interior color and Obsidian Black making up the accents and stitching.

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. However, customers can mix and match exterior and interior themes as they see fit. Yellow brake calipers provide further contrast behind gloss black 5-spoke alloys. The second theme is Sport Line, which paints the vehicle Zenon Grey and adds Cobalt Blue graphics, with yellow and blue accents contrasting Phantom Grey leather inside. Look for "Ultimate" badges on the carbon fiber side strakes, seat headrests, and door sills.

The new vehicle is powered by the same 595bhp 6.0-litre V12 petrol engine as the standard Vanquish S, paired with an eight-speed automatic gearbox. The engine comes paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Marek Reichmann, 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".
