Aston Martin Cambridge has commissioned a new special edition inspired by The Blades aerobatic display team which is based out of the Sywell Aerodrome in the United Kingdom. Dubbed the Vantage S Blades Edition, the model draws inspiration from The Blades tri-colored planes. As a result, the car has a silver exterior with a black roof and orange accents. The special edition also has black wheels, orange brake calipers, and a carbon fiber front spoiler.

Aston Martin Cambridge has commissioned a new special edition inspired by The Blades aerobatic display team which is based out of the Sywell Aerodrome in the United Kingdom.

Dubbed the Vantage S Blades Edition, the model has a silver exterior with a black roof and orange accents.  The special edition also has black wheels, orange brake calipers, and a carbon fiber front spoiler.

Interior changes are relatively minor but we can see black leather seats with contrasting orange accents and The Blades logo on the headrests.  A closer inspection also reveals carbon fiber trim and orange piping on the carpets.

Like the standard model, power will be provided by a 4.7-liter V8 engine that develops 430 horsepower and 361 pound-feet of torque.   This enables the car to accelerate from 0-60 miles per hour in 4.8 seconds before hitting a top speed of 190 mph.

Production will be limited to five units and each one will come with its own unique identifier linking it directly to one of The Blades aircraft.  The Vantage S Blades Edition reportedly costs £119,950 and the first deliveries are slated for March.

 

Say hello to the Aston Martin Vantage S ‘Blades Edition’. This very special car comes with a unique package of bespoke tailoring and an unforgettable handover event. Just 5 Vantage S ‘Blades Edition’s will be built and each will come with its own unique identifier linking it directly to one of The Blades aircraft.Contact us to find out more: http://www.jardinemotors.co.uk/aston-martin/contact-us/1/lancaster-cambridge-aston-martin/
