Inspired by British aviation skills, Aston Martin has come out with a limited edition offering – the Vanquish S Red Arrows edition.

Finished in Eclat Red paint, the Red Arrows edition gets a host of subtle details that enhance the bodywork and interior, from white and blue carbon livery detailing to the white 'smoke trail' feature on the side strake. An exposed carbon fibre roof panel includes an inlaid 'charge' pattern mimicking the canopy design of a jet, while Union Jack enamel wing badges and a titanium exhaust complete the exterior package. Inside, the One-77-derived steering wheel is paired with a centre rotary toggle switch inspired by aviation instrumentation and switchgear.

Other than these enhancements, mechanically the Vanquish S remains identical to the standard Aston Martin car, featuring a 5.9-litre V12 motor. The strong powerhouse, paired with the 8-speed gearbox, allows the Vanquish S to hit 100kmph in just 3.5 seconds.

Only ten examples of the Red Arrows inspired cars are being commissioned by Aston Martin Cambridge, each with unique features, interiors and graphic elements that draw on the visual language of aviation, as well as the skill of the RAF's official aerobatic unit, the Red Arrows.
