Aston Martin launch V8 Vantage S Blades Edition

To celebrate Aston Martin’s relationship with the British aerobatics team, the Cambridge dealership has commissioned 5 very unique V8 Vantage Blade Editions.

The limited-run Blades will be sold exclusively out of the Cambridge dealership and come with a very special handover package.  Buyers will be given their cars during a day spent with The Blades at the Sywell Aerodrome, where they will receive the full VIP treatment.  The day includes a driving experience with a professional driver in their car, a helicopter hovering lesson and an aerobatic flight with The Blades, rounded off with a display from the world’s only aerobatic airline.

The car itself is finished with bespoke styling in The Blades’ colours, each marked with a unique aircraft identification code.  Styling details include The Blades logo embroidered into the headrests, with orange and black contrasting stitching throughout the cabin and seat stripes.  Externally, the cars are finished with orange accents and Jet-black trim, and come with a matching car cover made from parachute silk.  Each buyer will receive an Aston Martin leather photo album, following the car’s journey from conception to reality.

In common with the standard V8 Vantage S, The Blades Edition is powered by a 418bhp naturally aspirated 4.7-litre V8, and can sprint from 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds.

Priced at £119,950, The Blades Edition is £9250 more expensive than the regular Vantage S, and is available to order now from the Aston Martin Cambridge dealership.
