Aston Martin Vanquish gets the Storck carbon fiber treatment
After the McLaren 650S One-of-Seven, Markus Storck, founder of Storck Bicycle, has tied up with another car manufacturer. Storck is a known sports car enthusiast and he himself owns an Aston Martin as well. He has collaborated with Aston Martin's bespoke personalisation service, called the Q Division, to create the Vanquish One-of-Seven. The company's personalization service is a nod to the James Bond series, the franchise that thrust Aston Martin into the limelight. As the name suggests, there will only be 7 cars made and the first has been delivered to a German client.
Storck is known in the biking community as one of its top innovators, using carbon fiber on bicycles since the 90's. "I’m absolutely thrilled to see my vision for a series of bespoke Aston Martin Vanquish come to life like this. The attention to detail, service and dedication I have seen from the Q team has been exceptional – and the result is outstanding.” said Storck.
From the outside, the Vanquish One-of-Seven boats an exclusive exterior finish that sees multiple layers of carbon fiber interwoven to a smooth finish. The multi-layered carbon fiber body, with its elements of exposed carbon is finished in Jet Black paint. Dr Matthew Bennett, General Manager of VIP sales said “The process of creating these sports cars has been typical of what Q by Aston Martin can deliver.”
Aside from the carbon fiber finish, the Vanquish One-of-Seven features an array of luxurious and custom-made additions such as diamond quilting on the seats and machined carbon Aston Martin wings badges. Its ‘One-of-Seven’ logos perforated into the headrests have a subtle nod to the James Bond franchise. Lastly, it features a variety of gloss black styling additions. All in all, the car follows Storck's philosophy on carbon fiber.
Matthew Bennett concluded: “Developing the capacity of our Q by Aston Martin service to deliver these truly bespoke luxury sports cars has been a great achievement.”
