Q by Aston Martin’s latest project is a Chinese special edition based on the brand’s British heritage

The Aston Martin V8 Vantage S Great Britain edition has been revealed at the Shanghai motor show.

Production is limited to five examples, which will all be sold in China, and the car is marked out by blue exterior trim on white paint, and red, white and blue Aston Martin badges. The red on the brake callipers completes the red, white and blue theme.

The interior features blue leather upholstery finished with quilting exclusive to the series.

Aston’s Great Britain edition V8 Vantage S is the latest project by the brand’s Q by Aston Martin initiative, following aviation-themed special editions of the Vanquish S, V12 Vantage S and V8 Vantage S.

Like the other special editions created by Q by Aston Martin so far, the Vantage S Great Britain edition doesn’t feature any mechanical or performance upgrades. This special edition costs around £236,000.

Aston Martin seem to be on a slippery slope of special edition after special edition. How long before the Aston Martin 'Battle of Britain' special, with a German Engine and electrics in of course!

    Handsome entrant into the bulging small crossover market has a strong engine and agile handling, but isn’t as comfortable or complete as rivals

    Hyundai's funky-looking Kona crossover with a peppy three-cylinder engine makes all the right noises for the car to be a success in a crowded segment

    17 October 2017
    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
