Aston Martin is inviting car lovers to put down deposits on a limited edition run of Aston Martin Vanquish S.

For just £182,095 (the same price as the current Vanquish S) owners can expect thier favourite supercar in a unique black paint which will only be available with this car.

Other features include a special interior trim in semi-aniline leather, with coarse stitching, leather headlining and black chrome finish interior fitting. Each car will also be fitted with personalised sill plaques denoting the limited edition number.

Just 40 Ultimate Edition models will be made to mark the end of the Vanquish production run and have a 2+2 seating layout.

Those worried that the new paint job will affect performance, shouldn't be. Aston Martin say that the Vanquish S Ultimate Edition retains all performance capabilities of the standard Vanquish S – and accordingly its position as the fastest ever production Aston Martin, capable of a top speed in excess of 200mph (321km/h).

The company has also announced that existing Vanquish customers will now be able to order a transmission conversion from the car’s existing Auto Shift Manual (ASM) system, to a conventional stick-shift manual.
