We just reported that the new V12 Vantage S Roadster and DP-100 would be making appearances at the Concours d’Elegance, but it appears Aston’s bespoke customization wing, Q, will sneak four personalized racehorses into the festival as well, each with its own unique utility and charm.
This striking Vanquish is finished in Abor Orange (a Q branch exclusive) and a rich weave of carbon fiber throughout.
The ‘amplified’ carbon fiber texture, as Aston calls it, presents a twill that is double in size than standard, giving the car’s front lip, rear diffuser, and side skirts a near holographic look.
Inside, Obsidian Black leather is highlight with Abor Orange stitching, and a ‘Helix’ snowflake design, named after a carbon molecule helix, runs down the cabins like an electric current.
The droptop Vanquish, like the coupe, wears a Q-exclusive finish called Frosted Silver. It’s easily the most menacing of the lot (partly because the last two are purple and pink), but the graphite paint looks great over the Vanquish’s musculature.
The Volante may be a classy Brit, but the interior is pure cowboy, with ‘authentic equestrian saddle leather’ in Chestnut Tan. In fact, the same material was used to create a saddle accessory that provides additional rear storage. Giddyup.
Wait, is that pink interior? Aston is calling it ‘blush pearl,’ but let’s be real. That’s pink.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that, though. The exterior is coated with Q’s Ashen Blonde, a champagne-leaning silver that’s accented by polished alloys.
Aston says the bubblegum interior is inspired by luxury furniture, but the color, in combination with the Piano Ice Mocha fascia and pink rhodochrosite inlay, reminds me more of a certain fashion doll from Malibu.
Aston’s last one-off that’s bound for Pebble Beach is an Amethyst Purple V12 Vantage S. The front grill and rear diffuser is highlighted with a teal Monterey Pearl, and the cabin is, like the Vanquish Coupe, is dressed in Obsidian Black.
Which bespoke Aston is your favorite? You don’t have to decide now; you’ll have a chance to see these beauties in person in Monterey next week. The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance starts August 14th.
