A company backed by Nest co-founder Tony Fadell is taking Andy Rubin's startup to court.


Aston Martin has revealed the Vanquish S Ultimate Edition as the highly-acclaimed flagship enters the final phase of its manufacture life. Being limited to just 175 cars worldwide, the Ultimate edition is available in Coupe or Volante form. It is priced at £211,995 (Around Rs. 1.82 Crores) for Coupe and £223,995 (Around Rs. 1.92 Crores) for the Volante. The orders are now being taken for the duo with first distributions scheduled for Q1 2018. Aston Martin Vanquish S would be bidding farewell shortly and a new model would fill in its shoes.

Aston Martin Vanquish S Ultimate Edition would be available in a choice of three exterior color schemes. The first of these Designer Themes is a monochrome design that mates Ultimate Black paintwork – a nod to the first generation Vanquish S Ultimate Edition, for which this color was first created – with Copper Bronze graphics around the front air intake, along the side sills and on the rear diffuser. Detailing includes black exhaust tailpipes, brake calipers, window trims and 5-spoke wheels, plus extensive use of carbon fiber for the bonnet louvres, front grille and side strakes. The interior features Obsidian Black leather with Chestnut Tan accents and stitching and carbon fiber twill facia.

The second Designer Theme takes inspiration from the look and materials used in technical sportswear. A mixture of Xenon Grey paint and Cobalt Blue graphics complements the Ultimate’s carbon fiber and black trim. Yellow brake calipers deliver further contrast behind gloss black 5-spoke alloys. The same family of exterior hues continue to the interior, where Electron Yellow accents and Spectral Blue stitching stand out against the Phantom Grey leather upholstery. The third of the Designer Themes contains of cool White Gold paintwork and warm Bronze graphics alongside gloss black and carbon fiber exterior specifying. Chestnut Tan leather with Obsidian Black accents and cuprum carbon fiber facia are the major highlights.

In addition to the especially created color and trim packages there are a suite of details that are also unique to the Vanquish S Ultimate. These include carbon fiber side strakes featuring rose gold ‘Ultimate‘ decals, carbon fiber treadplates and an ‘Ultimate’ sill plaque, a special stitched quilting design on the seats, plus ‘Ultimate’ headrest embroidery. The Aston Martin Vanquish S Ultimate Edition is powered by the legendary naturally-aspirated 6.0L V12 engine with maximum power of 595bhp and a spectacular soundtrack. It is linked to an 8-speed Techtronic III automatic transmission with 3-stage adaptive damping and carbon ceramic brakes as standard fitment.
