Aston Martin Works 60th Anniversary Limited Edition Vanquish revealed, limited to 6 cars

Aston Martin is celebrating 60 years of Aston Martin Works with the commissioning of six limited edition sports cars, all based on the Vanquish GT in either Coupe or open-top Volante form.

Powered by a 568bhp 6.0-litre V12 engine with 464 lb-ft of torque linked to an eight-speed automatic transmission, all six cars are guaranteed to go fro 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds on to a top speed of 200mph.

The six bespoke cars are being created in association with the luxury British brand’s Gaydon-based design team, and its ultimate personalisation service: Q by Aston Martin.

Each car is tailored to reflect one of the six decades being celebrated.

The highlight of each car are bespoke rotaries around the major controls in the centre console of each Vanquish.

Each rotary has been cast from metal that, previously, had formed a piston in an Aston Martin engine of the relevant period. These rotaries are then carefully laser etched with Works’ Anniversary wording.

The six pistons have been drawn from engines in the following Newport Pagnell-built sports cars:
1955-1965: DB 2/4 Mk II saloon
1965-1975: DB5
1975-1985: V8 Coupe
1985-1995: V8 Vantage X-pack
1995-2005: V8 Vantage supercharged
2005-2015: Original Vanquish

Other unique features in the Anniversary cars include: distinctive Anniversary Yellow accents on the side strakes and alloy wheels, White/black Duotone seat centre panels, unique sill plaques depicting the era the car relates to and featuring the Works Anniversary logo, distinctive colour and trim treatments that include features such as contrast yellow stitching in the leather, and new heavy weave carbon fibre.
