Aston Martin has debuted the latest vehicle to come out of its Q personalization division, and the result is pretty as always.
Only 10 of these Vanquish S Red Arrows Edition models will be built, and each pulls inspiration from the Royal Air Force’s famous Red Arrows aerobatic display team.
The Vanquish S Red Arrows is painted in the same Eclat Red color as the team’s jets and features a blue and white side stripe inspired by the smoke trails its planes leave behind. A special detail inspired by the canopy of the BAE Hawk aircraft used by the Red Arrows also adorns the vehicle’s roof.
The aviation inspiration continues inside with seats upholstered in the same green as the pilots’ suits and Red Arrow badges embroidered into the door panels and seatbacks. The rear seats have been replaced with stowage areas for two Red Arrows-painted crash helmets, which are included with the car along with race suits, bomber jackets, a luggage set, car cover, build book, and a scale model of the car and a Red Arrows plane. Each car also gets a unique engine plaque signed by a Red Arrows pilot.
No performance upgrades have been applied, meaning the Vanquish S’s 595-horsepower, 465-lb-ft, 5.9-liter V12 remains untouched. Linked to an eight-speed automatic transmission, the engine hustles the Vanquish to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 201 mph.
Just 10 examples of the Aston Martin Vanquish S Red Arrows Edition will be built, however, the 10th car will be gifted to the RAF Benevolent Fund, leaving only nine up for grabs. Pricing has yet to be announced.
