Aston Martin tries their hand at a Year of the Dragon special edition.
Aston Martin is following in the footsteps of Rolls-Royce, Dartz and Ferrari (amongst others) by releasing a special edition 'Year of the Dragon' model for the Chinese market. The Dragon 88 package will be limited to only 88 units and be available for the DBS Volante, Virage Coupe and V8 Vantage S coupe. The trio of British sports cars will be available in a trio of colors, each representing a deep value understood by those with a much higher level of understanding than yours truly.
They are Volcano Red, which represents the fire of the dragon, Amethyst Red, which symbolizes wealth, peace, protection and intuition, and Champagne Gold, which illustrates the dragon's status and prestige, wealth and fortune. Because, you know, dragons have fortunes. And wealth. The exterior also features a 24-carat gold badge on the hood and rear. These three exterior colors are complemented by Spicy Red, Chancellor Red and Deep Purple interior colors. Piano black trim, dragon-embroidered headrests and gold inlays further add some serious luxury to the Chinese-style Aston.
No pricing information has been released as of yet for the Aston Martin Dragon 88 special editions. They will be on display starting tomorrow at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show.
