You know you have “screw-you” money when you can afford to have Q by Aston Martin create seven bespoke Vanquish Coupes for yourself and six buddies. That is exactly what the founder of Storck Bikes did, and the first of these special Vanquish models was delivered today.

The bespoke Aston Martins go beyond the typical scope of Q by Aston Martin, which forced the bespoke arm to install a new addition to its manufacturing process. The item that required this special addition was the multi-layer carbon-fiber finish, which uses several layers of carbon fiber that results in a smooth finish.

With the carbon fiber in place, Aston took to painting a large portion of the car in jet black, but it left some sections of the lightweight material naked. This matte paintjob and the exposed carbon fiber play off each other nicely. Q also added in machined carbon-fiber Aston Martin wing emblems.

Inside the cabin, Aston continued with gloss-black accents, custom diamond quilting on the seats, and “One of Seven” logos on the headrests.

Under the hood, it looks as if things remained stock. This means that this bespoke sports car has the standard AM29 V-12 engine that produces 568 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. The power heads through a rear-mounted Touchtronic III eight-speed auto transmission as it heads to the rear wheels. This nets the standard Vanquish a 0-to-60 time of 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 201 mph.

There is no mention of how much Mr. Storck paid to have these cars commissioned, but I can assure you it was a hefty sum above the base price of the Vanquishes.

Why it matters

Q by Aston Martin took some time to get its feet under it, but lately it has unveiled some real winners. This latest version of the Vanquish is yet another feather in the cap of Q, as it knocked this one out of the park. The contrast between the matte paint finish and exposed carbon fiber is gorgeous, and the luxurious cabin is well laid out without going overboard.

Press Release

The Q by Aston Martin bespoke personalisation service is celebrating the fulfilment of a longstanding ambition for sports car enthusiast and businessman Markus Storck.

Dr Matthew Bennett, General Manager of VIP sales and Q by Aston Martin personalisation service, delivered the first of seven uniquely built Vanquish Coupes to the German collector at an event held at the luxury marque’s headquarters in Gaydon.

Mr Storck, founder and head of German hi-tech bicycle manufacturer Storck Bikes, commissioned the Q by Aston Martin team to develop the special ‘One of Seven’ Vanquish sports cars for himself, and six fellow sports car aficionados.

Boasting a broad array of bespoke features including an exclusive exterior finish that sees multiple layers of carbon fibre cleverly interwoven to a perfectly smooth finish – a result that required Aston Martin to develop an entirely new addition to its manufacturing process – the seven Vanquish are sure to become collectors’ items in years to come.

Matthew Bennett said: “The process of creating these sports cars has been typical of what Q by Aston Martin can deliver.

“From a blank canvas we have made the client’s vision for the cars a reality and, today, we saw the first of these special new Vanquish models handed over.”

Aside from the multi-layered carbon fibre body, with its elements of exposed carbon and satin Jet Black paint finish, the bespoke Vanquish sports cars also include an array of luxurious and custom-made additions such as diamond quilting on the seats, machined carbon Aston Martin wings badges, ‘One of Seven’ logos perforated into the head restraints and a variety of gloss black styling additions.

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.”

Matthew Bennett concluded: “Developing the capacity of our Q by Aston Martin service to deliver these truly bespoke luxury sports cars has been a great achievement.
