A teaser video for a special-edition Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Spitfire 80 has been released ahead of the car's launch.
The model has been created to celebrate the passing of 80 years since the first Supermarine Spitfire World War 2 fighter took to the sky.
Sold exclusively at Jardine Motors Group Aston Martin Cambridge and created by the car maker’s Q personalisation service, just eight examples of the Spitfire model will be built at a price of £180,000 each.
To signify the 80th anniversary of Britain’s most iconic warplane, every Vantage S Spitfire 80 will feature components made by the Aircraft Restoration Company at Duxford. These include tailpipe tips finished in a rainbow ‘bloom’ effect to match the Spitfire’s exhausts and an aluminium bar in the cabin that’s inspired by the Spitfire’s rear strut brace.
Also added to the car is a satin-carbonfibre rear diffuser and front spoiler, colour-coded bonnet louvres and solid sterling silver Aston Martin wings badges with tailored Old English White inlay. Customers can also have a Spitfire serial number lacquered into their car’s side strakes.
