Geneva 2013: V12 Vantage by Q

On their stand at the Geneva Motorshow, Aston Martin is showing several examples of cars created by their bespoke design service ‘Q by Aston Martin’. One of the Q examples is this aggressive looking V12 Vantage in Satin Black.

This V12 Vantage has been painted in Satin Black (= matte black) and has been completely de-chromed. That is, all chrome parts have either been replaced by carbon fibre parts or been painted black. On the exterior, we can see:

  • V12 Vantage wheels painted gloss black
  • Black grille
  • Matte black Zircotec exhaust tail pipes
  • Carbon fibre mirror caps
  • Carbon fibre side strakes
  • Carbon fibre real lamp infills
  • Aston Martin logos with black background
  • Yellow brake callipers
  • And finally: Black window sills! Which is a first on a factory Aston Martin.
    Did I inspire mr Q with the black window sills on my red and black monster?

On the inside, the carbon and black theme continues, with:

  • Obsidian Black leather.
  • Seats in Obsidian Black leather and alcantara
  • Carbon fibre + piano black facia
  • Carbon fibre gearshift surround
  • Yellow stitching

Personally, I love this aggressive look on a V12 Vantage.
Now I’m tempted to wrap my own Carbon Red edition in matte black… ๐Ÿ™‚
