2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante Skyfall edition

This 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante caught my eye with its interesting interior and subtle but sporty exterior design.

Most of the CF parts have been painted in a special Skyfall Silver named after the most recent James Bond movie, but little pieces like the side mirrors and trademark side grill have been left exposed for a nice touch.

Aston Martin does awesome work with design and even though the Vanquish Volante looks similar to the entire Aston Martin line-up little changes make it completely unique.

The seats have different patterns, surfaces and textures and are one of the more interesting looking seats I’ve see on a production cars. Technically the Vanquish Volante is a 2+2 but it looks there is only room for two occupants at a time.
