Six limited-edition Aston Martin Works 60th Anniversary Vanquish cars have been unveiled.
Six bespoke models to celebrate Aston Martin Works’ 60th anniversaryThe bespoke models are all based on the Vanquish and each of them are subtly different and have been tailored to reflect one of the six decades being celebrated.
"This Vanquish and its five siblings are a celebration of 60 glorious years of Aston Martin at Newport Pagnell,” said Paul Spires, commercial director of Aston Martin Works.
"The team have created a series of cars that are forward looking and dynamic. Their anniversary accents ensure that they are certainly not a retro pastiche of our history."
Each vehicle is powered by the standard Vanquish’s 6.0-litre naturally-aspirated V12 engine delivering 423 kW and 630 Nm of torque. It is mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox, and can do the 0-100 km/h sprint in a claimed 3.6 seconds before reaching a top speed of 321 km/h.
Unique colour and trim treatmentsThe Works Anniversary models are additionally identifiable by their Anniversary Yellow side strakes and two-tone alloy wheels, the new Aston Martin Works 60th Anniversary logo which, like the cars’ colour schemes, has been designed by the team at Gaydon. The vibrant and distinctive logos are etched into each car’s sill plates.
The interior is as uniquely styled as the exterior with two-tone seats, contrast yellow stitching and "heavy weave" carbon fiber trim. There are also special sill plates and a bespoke rotary knob which was created from metal used in a previous Aston Martin engine.
Paul Spires added: “We certainly gave ourselves some challenges with this project. Coloured side strakes such as these have never been attempted by Aston Martin before, and sourcing pistons from the correct engines in the correct decades was, of course, no small feat either.
“However, we’re all very happy with the end result and we’ve already taken a number of orders from collectors keen to own a piece of the brand’s history.”
