Subject 2016 Aston Martin GTS
In 2016, Aston Martin officially said goodbye to the Vantage with a final version called the Vantage GTS. Limited to only 100 examples produced worldwide the vehicle was destined to be a sought after example.
This GTS was brought to us from a client who is an avid Aston Martin enthusiast, but wanted to add some personality to the classic looks and styling the car is know for. First, we addressed the overall theme of the project by landing on an Avery Matte Charcoal metallic as our base color. Complimenting the body color are all of the carbon fiber additions installed on the car. Carbon fiber front grille, front spoiler, mirror package, rear diffuser, side strakes, and finally the custom Carbon fiber rear duckbill spoiler. The factory dry forged carbon fiber badges were applied to front and rear, in place of the bright white enamel version.
Next up, we needed to lower the sky high factory ride height utilizing tailored H&R suspension components, lowering the car nearly 2" all around. Stance was properly adjusted by contacting our friends at Vossen and building a custom finished set of True Forged EVO-6T monoblock wheels, finished in Gloss black and wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires. And finally to match the new aggressive looks, we installed a Quicksilver catback exhaust system, finely tuned for the GTS creating the rumble you expect to hear when you see this car show up.
This Aston Martin is now shining example of a well thought out design plan that focus's on keeping the vehicles classic and sought after factory design cues in place, while amplifying, personalizing, and modernizing the overall vehicle appearance, presence, and sound.
At Label, we strive to stay within the bounds of each individual vehicle styling while also pressing those boundaries in order to create beautiful works of art, this GTS is an example of that strict diligence.
