Q by Aston Martin – Aston’s personalisation service – will display four cars at Pebble Beach 2014 – a Vanquish, Vanquish Volante, DB9 Volante and V12 Vantage S.
Q by Aston Martin is Aston Martin’s customisation programme for their cars, offering bespoke titivation to make cars even more individual than they already are. And a chunk more expensive too.
And to illustrate just some of the customisation options possible for their cars, Aston Martin has decided to take four new ‘Q’ cars to this months event at Pebble Beach and will be displaying them at the Aston Martin estate – high above Carmel – alongside the new V12 Vantage S Roadster and DP-100 Vision Gran Turismo car.
On display will be an Aston Martin Vanquish Coupe, Vanquish Volante, DB9 Volante and V12 Vantage S, all with a selection of ‘Q’ titivation to entice well-heeled punters to dig a little deeper when they order their new Aston Martin.
The Q by Aston Martin Vanquish Coupe comes in a new colour – Abor Orange – with the exposed carbon demonstrating a new amplified weave, with the larger weave displaying a bold graphic pattern.
Inside, the Q Vanquish gets Obsidian Black leather printed with a carbon Helix pattern on the spine of the headliner and repeated on the door panels.
The Q by Aston Martin Vanquish Volante also gets a new exterior paint finish – Frosted Silver – with graphite-finished 10-spoke alloys and silver-painted brake calipers matching the ‘Q’ badges on the wings.
The interior has chestnut Tan leather upholstery with a fluted seat pattern and a saddle bag in the back made from Saddle leather to give additional storage, and a central fascia painted in Frosted Silver to match the exterior.
The Q by Aston Martin DB9 Volante gets painted in a Q-specific colour – Ashen Blonde – with a set of polished alloys, and a Blush pearl interior with Piano Ice Mocha facia with a blanket stitch running the spine of the interior. There’s also a pink Rhodachrosite inlaid in the Q buckle badge on the console.
Finally, the Q by Aston Martin V12 Vantage S gets a rich purple Amethyst exterior with Monterey Pearl grill and rear diffuser, with the interior getting obsidian black leather with Vivid Purple detailing on the seats, glovebox, steering wheel and headlining and a series of special carbon fibre details.
