Aston Martin has just lifted the covers off a new bespoke Vanquish model, which has been customised by its ‘Q’ personalisation service.

The new car, is the first in a series of seven identical models, which have been commissioned by German collector Markus Storck, who is known for ordering bespoke, high-end items, including Rolex watches and McLaren’s new 650S supercar, in batches of seven.

Storck himself is expected to keep the first model, and offer the remaining six to his friends.

Unique touches to Aston Martin’s flagship model include Jet Black paint in a satin finish and lashings of racy-looking carbon fibre trim. The normally highly-polished Aston Martin badges have been given a rather more rustic patina, having been replaced with machined items.

Inside, it’s business as usual, but the seats are now decked out with diamond quilting, complete with contrasting stitching, along with ‘One of Seven’ motifs perforated into the headrests.

The engine, however, hasn’t been altered, but as the 6.0-litre V12 unit already develops 568bhp – enough to get the Vanquish up to 201mph – it’s hardly lacking.

Markus Storck said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to see my vision for a series of bespoke Aston Martin Vanquish come to life like this.

“The attention to detail, service and dedication I have seen from the Q team has been exceptional – and the result is outstanding.”
