Aston Martin Vanquish Q
Aston Martin will showcase a new collection of bespoke commissions created by the company’s Q by Aston Martin division - the ultimate personalization service – at the Pebble Beach®Automotive Week next week; commissioned by dealer partner, Galpin Aston Martin.
Following the successful centenary celebrations at the 2013 event, Aston Martin returns to Monterey to host guests at the exclusive Aston Martin Estate. This exquisite private venue, situated high above Carmel with panoramic views across the Monterey Bay, provides the ideal backdrop for showcasing Aston Martin’s latest sports car range to customers and friends of the brand.
Supported by Louis Roederer, Timothy Oulton, McIntosh, Davidoff, William Grant & Sons, Ghurka and Merrill Lynch, more than 1,000 customers are expected to visit during the week.
Amongst the attractions at The Estate are four new Q by Aston Martin designs led by Los Angeles-based dealer partner, Galpin Aston Martin. Based on the DB9 Volante, V12 Vantage S and Vanquish (Coupe and Volante) sports cars, each example offers a glimpse of the capabilities available for customers to create something truly unique.
Director of Design, Marek Reichman said: “Our Q by Aston Martin personalization service offers customers the ability to work closely with the Design team to create a very personal car, synthesizing individual visions with the considerable craftsmanship skills and expertise at our disposal.”
The sporting character of the Vanquish is amplified with powerful colors, bold contrasts and an innovative enlarged carbon fibre weave structure.
Painted in Abor Orange – a new exclusive Q paint finish – the exterior offers the vibrancy of a rich orange red fired with an intensity emphasized by a shimmering pearl effect.
In a development of woven carbon fibre composite technology, an amplified weave sees the standard carbon twill double in size, magnifying the holographic depth of the carbon weave and giving all exposed exterior carbon parts a bold graphic pattern.
Ensconced in the Obsidian Black leather interior, the carbon theme is continued with a printed leather in a design called ‘Helix’; inspired by a carbon molecule helix and influenced by experimental rapid prototyped furniture. Running like a spine down the centre of the car, the Helix print is set on an unbroken expanse of leather headliner panel, and is revealed again in the door panels.
