Callum’s New Firm’s First Design: Aston Martin Vanquish 25

Former Jaguar and Aston Martin Design Boss, Ian Callum, is back at it. For its first trick, he launches a refurbished Aston Martin Vanquish.

We can’t say we disagree with Callum’s first project. It’s certainly a cool one if mostly because it demonstrates that the recently retired designer’s still love the business of cars. The Aston Martin Vanquish 25 is a modernized, refurbished and tastefully fast-forwarded into the 21st century.

These Aston Martin Vanquish will not simply be modified and dressed à la TFTF. The cars will be completely stripped and disassembled to bare metal. From here, they will be rebuilt from scratch using new parts, and some improved parts.

The re-assembly process will include modern bits such as LED head- and taillights, carbon-ceramic brakes behind 20-inch wheels shod with Michelin tires. The cabin will get the same treatment gaining new sports seats, an upgraded infotainment system with touchscreen interface and loads more.

The important upgrades will take place under the bonnet. The V12 will see its power jump to an even 600-horsepower thanks to software, hardware, and exhaust upgrades. The Aston Martin Vanquish 25 will be offered with one of two transmissions, either a new 6-speed automatic gearbox or the original automated manual.

In all, only 25 will be built, hence the name. No word on pricing but we suspect it won’t be cheap.
