Aston Martin Works 60th Anniversary Limited Edition Vanquish

We have seen our share of anniversary cars, but the Aston Martin Works 60th Anniversary Limited Edition Vanquish is different. It is one of the rare cars, if not the only one, that bears a physical piece of the past. While there are the usual exquisite details in the area of trim, paint color and stuff, one finer detail connects each car to the automaker’s past: bespoke rotaries around the major controls, each fashioned out of a piston pulled from an Aston Martin engine of the relevant period and laser etched with Works’ Anniversary wording. Granted that those rotaries may not be the best looking and could very well sticks out like sore thumbs for some, but they are definitely emotive element which we believe long time Aston Martin enthusiasts will appreciate.
