Aston Martin turns 100 this year — Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford built their first four-cylinder race car together in 1913. The company is celebrating with a series of Centenary Editions, starting with the Vanquish.
The Centenary Edition Vanquish features a graduated paint finish — it fades from a dark grey at the roof to a lighter metallic gray at the base, one color blending seamlessly into another. The badges are pure sterling silver.
Inside, it features the same premium Deep Soft Black Leather as the ultra-exclusive One-77, stitched with contrasting silver thread, and individually numbered silver sill plates. The numbers? They run from 1 to 100, as exactly 100 of the cars will be built.
Buyers also receive silver Aston cufflinks, a silver pen, and a set of custom Bang and Olufsen headphones.
Price? They won’t tell you until you’re ready to buy. According to Aston, “prices for the Centenary Edition models are obtainable on application at Aston Martin’s 146 dealers in 46 countries worldwide.”
This won’t be the only 100th anniversary edition. Aston says a DB9, a V8 Vantage and a Rapide are on the way.
