Introducing the remarkable and equally rare 2018 Aston Martin Vanquish S Volante Ultimate. This exceptional specimen stands as the crowning jewel, marking the culmination of over a decade of Aston Martin's triumphant Gaydon-built VH chassis architecture. It exudes an air of timeless elegance paired with unrivalled performance.
Unveiled in 2017 as a tribute to the Vanquish model's production finale, the Vanquish S Volante Ultimate graced the world with only 175 units in total, comprising both Coupe and Volante variants. Harnessing the formidable prowess of the Vanquish S, this model is equipped with a 595bhp 6-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine, flawlessly paired with an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission, propelling it to a top speed of 201mph and accelerating from 0 to 62mph in a mere 3.5 seconds.
The Vanquish S Volante Ultimate boasts a whole host of exclusive features including Carbon fibre side strakes adorned with rose gold 'Ultimate' decals, intricate carbon fibre bonnet vents, inviting carbon fibre treadplates, and a prestigious 'Ultimate' sill plaque that come together to create a special package. Noteworthy are the seats, adorned with a special stitched quilting design, accompanied by a quilted leather headlining and 'Ultimate' headrest embroidery.
Of the 175 Vanquish S Ultimate Coupes and Volantes, its believed only 54 were Volantes, and within this, a mere 20 were built in UK right-hand drive configuration making this one of the rarest modern Aston Martin’s in existence.
Behold this example, presented in the elegant Ultimate Black Metallic paintwork (currently sporting a fantastic Metallic Green wrap, an option that can remain or be removed upon your preference).
The interior features Obsidian Black hides, beautifully contrasted by Chestnut Tan stitching and accents. Among its chosen optional extras, this masterpiece boasts Bronze brake callipers, black textured tailpipe finishers, and prestigious One-77 steering wheel. The car also benefits from a B&O sound system, ventilated front seats, and a wind deflector that adds to your driving pleasure. The exquisite 20” 5-spoke Gloss Black diamond-turned wheels radiate sophistication, all while a paint protection film, applied beneath the green wrap, provides double-layered paint protection.
First registered in April 2018, this example presents in impeccable condition having only covered 11,593 miles from new, showing only the faintest traces of use. Meticulous servicing, conducted according to schedule by Aston Martin main agents, along with the extension of the manufacturer's warranty until January 29th 2024, ensures this Vanquish S Volante Ultimate has received the highest care.
Looking back at the legacy of the 1st generation Vanquish S Ultimate and DBS Ultimate, it is with great anticipation that we foresee these vehicles ascending to coveted status among collectors and aficionados of the marque.
