The Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Just Got Better With A Fighter Plane-Inspired Special Edition

Special Edition

Just 80 examples of this awesome special edition will be built.

When it comes to special editions we want a car with more than just a fancy paint job. However, Aston Martin's Q personalization service has really outdone itself with its latest creation, the V12 Vantage S Spitfire 80. This limited edition model commemorates the 80th anniversary of Britain's iconic warplane. All 80 examples of the car will be built using parts from the Aircraft Restoration Company in Duxford, Britain, including tailpipe tips finished in a rainbow "bloom" effect to match the Spitfire's exhaust.

The car also features an aluminum bar in the cabin that is inspired by the plane's rear strut brace. Buyers can even have a Spitfire serial number lacquered into the car’s side strakes. All of the cars will be painted in Duxford Green with yellow pinstripes to match the Spitfire. If you are a huge fan of plane memorabilia you can purchase special accessories, including a special Spitfire 80 Irvin jacket as well as a flying helmet and goggles. If you do buy one of these cars it will be delivered to you at the Imperial War Museum Duxford on October 18th. Owners will be permitted to drive their car on the runway before watching an actual Spitfire demonstration. And unfortunately no changes have been made to the car's 565-horsepower V12.

The Spitfire's price will be around $50,000 more expensive than the standard car, and we aren't sure if any of the 80 cars will make it to the US. For every model sold Aston Martin will make a donation to the Royal Air Force welfare charity, the RAF Benevolent Fund. We love the special touches on this Aston Martin, even if we aren't really plane people. All we know is that the Aston Martin Spitfire Edition looks wonderful and is based on a car we already love.
