Aston Martin V8 Vantage S Great Britain Edition Limited To Five Units

Limited Edition

Cars don’t get more quintessentially British than this - yet it will only be available in China?

Aston Martin’s “Q” bespoke division has brought us some eye-catching custom cars lately, including a ravishing Vanquish S inspired by the Red Arrows aerobatic team. This latest example celebrates the automaker’s British heritage, as if it wasn’t obvious in the rather long winded and uninspiring name. Called the Aston Martin V8 Vantage S Great Britain Edition, the limited-edition sports car was revealed at the Shanghai Auto Show. It’s available only as a droptop, and will be limited to five units when it goes on sale exclusively in China.

Designed to celebrate “British culture and craftsmanship,” distinguishing the Aston Martin V8 Vantage S Great Britain Edition is a Stratus White paintjob with blue accents on the side mirrors, rear diffuser and taillights, as well as wing badges finished in red, white, and blue. Complementing the British blue theme is an interior lavished in Aurora Blue leather, with red wave quilting matching the style found in Aston Martin’s ultra-limited Zagato models. There are also anodized blue knobs on the dashboard and Union Jacks embroidered throughout the interior, as if this car couldn’t get any more quintessentially British. You’ll have to pay a premium for its exclusivity, though.

The Aston Martin V8 Vantage S Great Britain Edition will set you back RMB 2,088,000 – that’s around $303,000. Considering that the standard Vantage S roadster costs less than $160,000, you’re paying nearly double the price for a custom paintjob and embroided British flags. It also doesn’t feature any technical advantages over the standard roadster either, featuring the same V8 4.7-liter engine that produces 430-horsepower and 361 lb-ft of torque. 0-62 mph takes 4.8 seconds and it will reach a top speed of 190 mph. Also making its Chinese debut at the Shanghai show is the Aston Martin Rapide AMR edition that transforms the sleek sedan into a tenacious track car.
