Q by Aston Martin set to unveil four new bespoke models at Pebble Beach, including personalised takes on the Vanquish, DB9 and V12 Vantage

Aston Martin has become the latest manufacturer to announce it’ll display a number of bespoke variants at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance later this month.

Created by the British marque’s Q personalisation service and commissioned by Los Angeles-based dealer partner Gaplin Aston Martin, the four-strong collection features customised versions of the DB9 Volante, V12 Vantage S and the Vanquish in both Coupe and Volante form.

For the Vanquish, there’s Q by Aston Martin’s new and exclusive ‘Abor Orange’ paint scheme, backed up by an enlarged carbon fibre weave structure developed using innovative composite technology. Inside the Obsidian Black leather-trimmed interior, carbon appears in a slightly different form, serving as the inspiration for a ceiling-length ‘Helix’ print design that also makes it onto the door panels.

The Vanquish Volante, meanwhile, gets a Frosted Silver look, alongside graphite-finished 10-spoke alloys and so-called classically-styled polished callipers. Chestnut Tan leather dominates the Aston’s cabin, with Frosted Silver appearing once again on the dash. Demonstrating just how far customer’s can tweak the original design, this unique Vanquish gets authentic equestrian saddle leather that is used to create additional, saddle-style rear storage.

As for the DB9 Volante, Q by Aston Martin has added an Ashen Blonde silver exterior and matching polished alloys, plus blush pearl leather upholstery and Piano Ice Mocha centre console.

Finishing the line-up off is the one-off V12 Vantage S. Purple amethyst paint covers the exterior, contrasted by the Monterey Pearl grille and rear diffuser. Obsidian Black is the colour scheme of choice for the inside, but there are Vivid Purple leather details for the seats, steering wheel and glovebox, while hand wound carbon fibre details also appear throughout. 

“The Q by Aston Martin collection of cars shown at Pebble Beach are a bold statement of the intent and capability we are developing within Q,” explained Matthew Bennett, Aston’s general manager for Q and VIP Sales. “They show how customers can be inspired to create truly unique cars and the breadth of bespoke capability at their disposal.”
