V8 Vantage S Roadster Great Britain Edition

(2017) Q by Aston Martin

Designed through ‘Q by Aston Martin - Commission’ and specifically for the Chinese market, AML announced the V8 Vantage S Great Britain Edition at the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show. Strictly limited to just five examples, and described as 'the  is the perfect embodiment of British culture and craftsmanship', this was the second time that a car has been especially created for the key Chinese market after the Dragon 88 in 2012.

Finished in Stratus White, the car boasted blue tinted mirror caps and rear diffuser and unique red, white and blue exterior wing badges.  The interior was lavishly trimmed in a deep Aurora Blue leather, with bespoke ‘Zagato’ wave quilting, anodised blue rotaries and Union Jack embroidery.

Each example was priced at RMB 2,088,000 (the equivalent of £236,000). This might appear much more expensive than a typical car in Europe and the US but I suspect that much of the extra was accounted for by local taxation.

The total production did reach the promised 5, made up of three Roadsters and two coupes.
