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!
