Aston Martin V12 Vantage Q
Aston Martin will showcase a new collection of bespoke commissions created by the company’s Q by Aston Martin division - the ultimate personalisation 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.”
With a rich purple amethyst exterior paint punctuated with bright painted Monterey Pearl front grille and rear diffuser, this special V12 Vantage S Coupe adopts a unique example of the color and trim freedom offered through the Q service.
An Obsidian Black interior is punctuated with Vivid Purple leather details on a number of details including seat stripe, headlining, steering wheel and glove box lining. Also included are a series of special carbon fibre details such as the rotary controls which are each hand wound from a single filament of carbon fiber.
The concept of Q by Aston Martin is as simple as it is ambitious: customers engaging with the service are encouraged to challenge the team to make their automotive dreams reality. From the simplest color or trim amendment to wildly ambitious commissions such as the CC100 Speedster, the personalization service is inspiring its customers to let their imaginations soar.
Q by Aston Martin continues to grow in popularity throughout the company’s 44 global markets with an increasing proportion of new orders now requesting special Q attention.
