The car features exterior and interior directed by Marek Reichman.

Aston Martin only built 100 examples of the Centenary Edition Vanquish. This was to celebrate the company’s 100 year anniversary and each features the familiar 6.0-liter V-12 paired to an automatic transmission.
Craig said in the auction statement, “While I will miss it, I am keen to further the very important work of The Opportunity Network with its sale”
