Aston Martin releases range-topping special edition Vanquish

Aston Martin Vanquish

What do you think this could be? It's called the Aston Martin Vanquish S Ultimate Edition.

If you guessed a limited edition of 40 cars with unique black paint and an interior finished with special leather and black chrome detailing, you'd be absolutely spot on.

There's no added performance for the Ultimate Edition and no price increase, so it will set you back the normal £182,095, although you'd best be quick because Aston says the car's selling like hot cakes.

Another boost to the Vanquish range is the option of a manual gearbox... at long last.

This is available as a conversion from Aston's Works Service division and provides a six-speed manual gearbox in place of the auto with paddles shifts.

Now share it...
