Aston Martin announces bespoke ‘One of Seven’ Vanquish sports cars

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 3, 2015

The first of seven exclusively built Vanquish Coupes has been handed over to German collector Markus Storck during an event that took place at Aston Martin’s headquarters in Gaydon. The Q by Aston Martin bespoke personalisation service celebrates the fulfilment of the dream of Storck, a known sports car enthusiast and businessman.

Present during the delivery was Dr Matthew Bennett, General Manager of VIP sales and Q by Aston Martin personalisation service. The Q by Aston Martin team was commissioned by Storck, founder and head of German hi-tech bicycle manufacturer Storck Bikes, to develop and build the special ‘One of Seven’ Vanquish sports cars.

One is for himself while the rest are for six fellow sports car fans. The seven Vanquish vehicles will surely become collectors’ items soon. They have a wide range of bespoke features such as a unique exterior finish that was built using many layers of carbon fibre expertly interwoven to a totally smooth finish. To accomplish this, Aston Martin had to create a completely new addition to the manufacturing process.

According to Matthew Bennett, Aston Martin took a blank canvas and made the client’s vision a reality. The bespoke Vanquish sports cars have a multi-layered carbon fibre body that has elements of exposed carbon and satin Jet Black paint finish.

They also get an assortment of luxurious and custom-built elements like diamond quilting on the seats, machined carbon Aston Martin wings badges, ‘One of Seven’ logos perforated into the head restraints and various gloss black styling additions.

Storck added that he is “absolutely thrilled” to see his vision of the bespoke Aston Martin Vanquish “come to life like this.“ He added that the Q team’s attention to detail, service and dedication has been “exceptional” and has led to an “outstanding” result.

Bennett summed up the event, saying that it is a “great achievement” to have delivered these bespoke sports cars that utilized the capacity of its Q by Aston Martin service.

He added that to build these cars, its Design, Manufacturing and Commercial teams worked smoothly together. He hopes that in the future, the team will take on projects that are more complex and challenging.
