2004 Royal Excellence V12 Vanquish
As part of the Dimex-Group in Germany, Royal Excellence is the newest and most pompously-named tuning company to enter the market. They plan to specialize in modifying premium brands such as Aston Martin and Land Rover and other products that come from the once sovereign nation of Britain.
Royal Excellence’s first project was their bosses’ Aston Martin V12 Vanquish. They engineered special equipment to take the car to the next level, resulting in the most radical Vanquish we’ve seen yet.
RE start were Aston Martin left off. Highlighting the car is a carbon fiber underbody aimed at improving airflow and increasing down force. Also joining the fray is a front splitter and rear valence wing, both in carbon.
The engine sports a carbon fiber air box with new air cleaner. Modification of the engine mototronics was necessary, but no word as to how much more power this special Vanquish produces.
Other, more visual upgrades include an engine compartment cover, Yokohama tires over custom Conventry wheels and red brake calipers.
So if you would like to take your $280 000 USD Vanquish to the next level, Royal Excellence is your company. They can reproduce this show car for $21 000 USD and I am sure anything is possible given the right price.
