Aston Martin is celebrating 100 years in style, first announcing special Centenary, limited edition models and now airlifting its Vanquish onto the helipad of the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai.

Putting on a show in front of some of the region’s most important dignitaries, the British automaker became the first vehicle ever placed onto the hotel’s helipad, sitting 1,000 feet above the ground. As one of the most iconic automakers in the world, Aston Martin is working on becoming a globally renowned luxury car brand, and this appearance was the first of many that will be happening worldwide this year.
