Aston Martin Works celebrates its 60th anniversary with six bespoke cars, each one incorporating aluminum pistons from a specific decades models.
The first model is dedicated to the 2005-2015 original vanquish.
The six bespoke cars, all versions of the current Vanquish super GT in either Coupe or Volante form, are being created in association with the luxury British brand’s Gaydon-based design team, and its ultimate personalization service: Q by Aston Martin.
Each of the six cars is subtly different, and each is tailored to reflect one of the six decades being celebrated. The result is a collection of rare and ultra-desirable sports cars that will be instantly recognizable as ‘Works 60th Anniversary’ models.
The six pistons have been drawn from engines in the following Newport Pagnell-built sports cars:
1955-1965: DB 2/4 Mk II saloon
1975-1985: V8 Coupe
1985-1995: V8 Vantage X-pack
1995-2005: V8 Vantage supercharged
2005-2015: Original Vanquish
“This project has been a harmonious co-operation across the whole business, developed uniquely to celebrate 60 years of Aston martin works at Newport Pagnell.’ explained aston martin works commercial director, Paul Spires.
“I’m thrilled to be unveiling the first of these cars at our christmas celebration, and look forward to seeing the remaining models being built and delivered to customers throughout the course of our anniversary year in 2015”.
