Aston Martin Cambridge Creates Custom V12 Vantage to Honor the Spitfire

Aston Martin Cambridge has commissioned a new limited-edition V12 Vantage, to celebrate a classic fighter plane. 

To celebrate the first flight of the Supermarine Spitfire, a well-known British fighter plane flown in Second World War, this dealer has put together this special V12 Vantage S Spitfire 80, of which only eight units will be built.

The car is finished in Duxford Green (named after a Royal Air Force base) with a thin yellow pinstripe running down the side of the car. Aston also had Duxford’s aircraft restoration division build some custom parts for the car, like the tailpipe finishers which are meant to match the Spitfire.

On the inside, the RAF logo is integrated straight into the dash while Aston Martin’s Q division had a small Spitfire motif embroidered into the headrests. Alcantara and Kestral Tan leather are found throughout.

Price of entry for one of these eight exclusive models is about $50,000 more than a standard V12 Vantage S, selling for roughly $240,210, and you have to go to Aston Martin Cambridge to get one. Some portion of that money will be donated to the RAF Benevolent Fund.

All eight owners will take delivery of their vehicle straight from the Duxford air force museum on October 18th, where they will also be treated to a day full of fun activities, including getting a flight in a Spitfire, driving an armored vehicle and getting a chance to drive their cars down the runway.
