Aerobatic jet-inspired V12 super-coupe with an intimidating British touch, Aston Martin introduces Vanquish S, the Red Arrows Edition. For starters, Red Arrows is considerably the most illustrious aerobatic display in a military airfield.

It has been executed since 1965 with daring close-quarters stunts and high-speed red, white and blue smoke that passes at events like the British Grand Prix and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Red Arrows has become an inspiration to Aston Martin.

The company announced that they will produce ten of this specific edition for Aston Martin Cambridge, basing it on Vanquish S. With fine details such as 5.9-litre, 592bhp naturally aspirated V12 under the hood. It also boasts a rear-wheel drive and a top speed of 201mph, passing 60mph in just about 3.9 seconds and an undeniably fine bodywork.

Applying the trademark of Red Arrows on the bodywork, the layout of the carbon roof has a charge mark in it. It emphasizes the image of the zig-zag explosives set into jet cockpits. The details consisted of white and blue sides stakes that hint at the effects of smoke trails behind speeding jets through the sky. It also comes with Pinewood green upholstery as inspiration element from RAF flight suits.

Plaques and logos are also in clean detail. Noting the humorous detail of the black and yellow stitching inspired from an ejector seat (which doesn't really exist in the Vanquish S) added a factor.

Speaking of upholstery, the cars are homologated as two-seaters which leave the rear holes as space for race helmets. Behind the lids is the owner's accessory that consists of flight suits, luggage, a book detailing the project and scale models of the car and a Hawk jet.

Building 10 cars, Q by Aston Martin offers one car to the RAF Benevolent Fund. The RAF Benevolent Fund is a charity that supports former servicemen and women, as a gift while the remaining 9 cars are offered for public sale.
