Graf Weckerle Imperialwagen Blanc de Blancs refines the Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 29, 2010

Graf Weckerle Imperialwagen Blanc de Blancs is one of the most impressive tuning programme we’ve seen for an Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster, taking the stylish cabriolet to another level. Celebrating the spirit of the grand French champagne houses, the visual presence of the new car is as unique as the Blanc de Blancs champagne itself, being made only of Chardonnay grapes.

Fans of the extreme tuning will be disappointed as the car doesn’t feature a new body kit, or other LEDs, etc. Instead, the Graf Weckerle Imperialwagen Blanc de Blancs comes with a special metallic-white exterior paint inspired by the white Chardonnay grapes to the shimmering green Graf Weckerle Coachline surrounded by precious gold-leafing. The design of the car is completed by the TÜV-approved Graf Weckerle Fleur-de-Lis ornamental wheels.

The valve cap is carefully hand-engraved and painted with the Graf Weckerle brand logo. According to the manufacturer, the wheels are hand-assembled from over 180 individual parts, which means it is a true masterpiece.

Inside, the car features elegant materials such as white velvet and leather, subtly accented by the colors green and gold. The interior design scheme is also seen on the seats and door panels. The Graf Weckerle Puroyale of the Blanc de Blancs Edition is further refined by rich Graf Weckerle Millefleurs embroidery, finished in white.

The interior is also accented with green piping and green leather ribbons integrated into the seats and door panels. More over, the green leather details represent the shiny green glass of the champagne bottles, but the highlight of the interior is the massive gold Graf Weckerle Imperialwagen brand logo in the upper seat area.

This is manufactured using pure 750 yellow gold and custom-finished with green enamel paint by hand.

In order to deliver more power, the car has been equipped with an optimized ECU and a stainless steel sports exhaust system, delivering a total output of 470 hp. Furthermore, the chassis has been reworked with progressive lowering coil springs, but the manufacturer also offers complete coil-over suspension systems with new adjustable sports shock absorbers.
