Former Jaguar designer improved old Aston Martin

Former Jaguar designer Ian Callum in 2019 left the company and founded his own firm Callum Designs, one of the areas of activity – construction of limited-edition cars. A month later the Studio presented his debut project – Vanquish 25 by R-Reforged. After nearly a year the prototype of a compartment formed in a serial product.

Dvuhdverka Aston Martin Vanquish 25 by Callum R-Reforged, in fact, have “reinterpreted” the Vanquish is the first generation, changes in design and construction which has accumulated 350 points. And most of these improvements still is connected with the driving dynamics qualities. The effectiveness of the new elements tested on British roads (the prototypes travelled over 30 thousand kilometers), and also proving ground Ladoux Michelin.

Old new “Waskish” has acquired a more rigid bushings and stabilizers, Bilstein shocks with special settings, extended by 60 millimeters a track and Michelin Pilot Sport tires designed specifically for the model. Clearance was lower by 10 millimeters. All of this exacerbated response, but the feeling of driving a large Grand Tourer preserved, says Callum. That is the Vanquish the same 25 adapted to the 20-minute trip around the city and travel through all of Europe.

The buyer of each of 25 vehicles will be available “boundless” choice of exterior colours, eight interior options and three sets of 20-inch wheels in different designs. Materials for upholstery purchased from the Scottish Bridge of Weir, one of the oldest leather companies in the world. This leather is used on McLaren GT and the top-end versions of Volvo XC90. The front panel 25 by Callum Vanquish R-Reforged is decorated with a removable pocket watch Bremont; in the rear you can put a bag of Mulberry.
