Aston rolls out special edition
Posted on: 30th Jan 2013
Iconic British sports car brand Aston Martin is marking the start of its birthday celebrations today - 15 January - with the unveiling of a bespoke new centenary edition Vanquish.
The luxury brand's ultimate GT car showcases a painstakingly created centenary edition specification that will be available worldwide on just 100 examples of each of the car maker's model lines: V8 Vantage, DB9, Rapide and Vanquish.
Featuring a unique graduated paint finish, solid sterling silver Aston Martin wing badges with tailored 'trans flux' enamel inlay and a special Aston Martin hallmark, the exterior represents an exclusive new celebration of the company's 100-year history.
A Centenary Edition Aston Martin is identified inside by its exclusive atouches including deep soft black leather - previously featuring only in the One-77 hypercar - with contrasting silver stitching, a special silver thread embroidery of the Aston Martin wings in the head restraints and solid sterling silver sill plaques individually numbered with an Aston Martin hallmark are among the features unique to the car.
Each centenary edition model will also be supplied with a unique presentation box containing a number of exclusive gifts to mark the first 100 years of the company.
These include two glass keys, two bespoke key pouches made from leather matching the car's interior trim, solid silver cufflinks featuring the Aston Martin script, solid silver Rollerball pen and high quality Bang & Olufsen headphones.
