Vanquish S Ultimate Edition

(2017 - 2018)

The Vanquish Ultimate Edition (VH3) followed a very similar theme to that set for both the original AMV03 Vanquish ten years earlier. Planned production of the Ultimate was upto 175 examples spread to a mixture of both coupes and Volantes and was available for sale worldwide. Based on the 2017MY Vanquish S, the car was one of the last fitted with the 595bhp naturally-aspirated 6.0-litre V12 together with 8-speed ZF Touchtronic III automatic transmission. Three-stage adaptive damping and carbon ceramic brakes complete a package.

Vanquish S Ultimate Edition

Available in a choice of three specially created colour and trim packages there are a suite of details that are also unique to the Vanquish S Ultimate. These include carbon fibre side strakes featuring rose gold ‘Ultimate‘ decals, carbon fibre treadplates 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 (as seen on the first Vanquish S Ultimates 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 fibre for the bonnet louvres, front grille and side strakes. The interior features Obsidian Black leather with Chestnut Tan accents and stitching and carbon fibre twill facia.

The second Designer Theme makes a striking combination of Xenon Grey paint and contrasting Cobalt Blue graphics which combine perfectly with the Ultimate’s carbon fibre and black trim. Yellow brake calipers provide further contrast behind gloss black 5-spoke alloys. The same theme continues to the interior, where Electron Yellow accents and Spectral Blue stitching stand out against the Phantom Grey leather upholstery.

Lastly, the third of the Designer Themes consists of cool White Gold paintwork and warm Bronze graphics which work brilliantly with gloss black and carbon fibre exterior detailing. The interior brings together Chestnut Tan leather with Obsidian Black accents with a spectacular cuprum carbon fibre facia. In particular, the white version of the Ultimate is similar to the 2007 Vanquish S Ultimate UAE.

Interestingly, customers could chose to combine any exterior scheme and interior package as a no-cost option. Or it was also possible to choose any other colour too. So it’s quite possible to see Vanquish S Ultimates not in the three designer themes.
