As­ton Martin’s Van­quish set to van­ish from world of au­tos

Au­tomaker has trio of themes on of­fer

Saskatoon StarPhoenix - - DRIVING - STANISLAV NACHEV

Sadly, this is the last As­ton Martin V-12 Van­quish. It comes with a $356,000 price tag for the coupe or $376,000 for the Volante. And it is lim­ited to just 175 cars world­wide for both vari­ants.

Nat­u­rally, the 6.0-litre V-12 engine, pro­duc­ing 595 horse­power, will have an ex­hil­a­rat­ing exhaust note. As­ton’s eight-speed Touchtronic III trans­mis­sion, three-stage adap­tive dampers and car­bon-ceramic brakes com­plete the pack­age, lead­ing to su­pe­rior han­dling and brak­ing.

The Ul­ti­mate edi­tion will come in three themes, one of which is fin­ished in black with Cop­per Bronze ac­cents. The in­te­rior is just as lav­ish, with seats wrapped in black leather and Ch­est­nut Tan ac­cents.

The other two themes fea­ture Xenon Grey paint­work with blue ac­cents, and White Gold paint with Warm Bronze ac­cents.

At no ad­di­tional cost, As­ton will let buy­ers to com­bine any in­te­rior pack­age with any ex­te­rior pack­age.

De­liv­er­ies will be­gin early next year, but it’s un­clear how many of the planned 175 cars will come to North Amer­ica.
