The models, which are finished in Blade colours, will be sold exclusively from the Cambridgeshire dealership. They will be handed over to their buyers during an action packed day with The Blades at Sywell Aerodrome.
Mechanically speaking, the Blades Edition is identical to a regular V8 Vantage S, so it’s powered by Aston Martin’s naturally aspirated 4.7-litre V8, capable of sending 418bhp and 347lb ft of torque to the rear wheels. Straight-line speed is unchanged; the Blade Edition sprints from 0-62mph in a claimed 4.9sec.
What sets the Blades Edition apart from regular Vantages are a few bespoke styling features. Outside, the car receives orange accents and jet-black trim, and inside, the cabin is given similar streaks of colour with contrasting stitching and seat stripes. The Blades logo is embroidered into the seat headrests, and each car gets a unique aircraft identification code.
