The highlight of this year’s Beijing Auto Show for Aston Martin was the unveiling of Dragon 88 collection. Unlike what it may seem at first, these are not just normal Aston Martins with some dragon symbols painted on them to impress the Chinese. These are like the bespoke, built to order models, with exquisite details. Even the exterior color on the Dragon 88 collection is unique to this lot.
In this video we take a closer look at the Aston Martin DBS Volante Dragon 88. There’s just one small problem. The commentary is in Chinese!
Dragon 88 is reserved for Aston Martin’s most powerful, elegant and prestigious models, the DBS, Virage and V8 Vantage S. Each “Year of the Dragon 88 Limited Edition” incorporates exclusive colour and trim combinations, with unique hand-crafted detailing inspired by traditional Chinese dragon imagery. Each of the 88 cars will feature details and designs that celebrate and reference the mystical qualities of the all powerful dragon symbol.
