The latest limited edition Aston to be made by the respected Q department is a cool one. The new Aston Martin Vanquish S Red Arrows Edition is a tribute to the Royal Air Force Red Arrows squadron, and it is kitted out accordingly. They are making only 10 units and one of them is going to benefit the RAF Benevolent Fund. So chances of getting one are quite slim.
So let’s see what Aston Martin Vanquish S Red Arrows apart from the other special Astons and makes it cooler. Well, the main highlights include Eclat Red exterior paint with blue and white side stripes mimicking the jets’ smoke trails, a green interior upholstery like the flight suit of Red Arrows pilots, custom graphics on the roof like the canopy of fighter jets, steering wheel from One-7 with RAF switchgear, and the usual limited edition plaque.
But look where the back seats were supposed to be and in their place you’ll find the piece de resistance of Aston Martin Vanquish S Red Arrows Edition. The car comes with a special package of gifts for the owners including Red Arrow motif crash helmets, race suits, bomber jackets, luggage set, car cover, build book and a scale model of both the car and a Hawk Red Arrow plane.
Being a Vanquish S this Aston is powered by a naturally-aspirated 6.0 litre V12 engine boosted to 600PS (up from 573PS) athanks to a revised, freer-breathing intake system.
