For this centennial celebration, the company's CEO, Dr. Ulrich Bez, played a major role in the design and specifications for the Centenary edition. These models displays a unique blend of exterior paint, in which the pigmentation of the silver finish has a graduated hue that makes it truly original. Even though the process adds almost an entire extra day to the process of painting the automobile, it is considered time well-spent because the results are stunning.
The silver theme is carried throughout each car, with sterling silver wing badges. The centenary edition is easily identifiable because of the interior design. The seats are covered with soft black leather that is rich in color and stitched with signature silver stitching.
In addition to the beauty and luxury of the car itself, when you get a centenary edition of the Vanquish, you will receive a very special gift box.
These gift boxes contain an assortment of unique gifts that are designed to further commemorate the 100th birthday of the sports car. They include:
- Two glass keys
- Two leather key pouches crafted to match the interior of the car
- Sterling silver cuff links featuring the logo of Aston Martin
- Rollerball pen crafted of solid sterling silver
- A set of Bang & Olufsen brand headphones.
