British sports car maker Aston Martin is celebrating its 100th birthday in grand style with some incredible centenary edition models of its iconic line-up.
Just 100 of the exclusive cars will be available for each of the V8 Vantage, DB9, Rapide and Vanquish model lines.
With bespoke interiors and exteriors, buyers will enjoy the epitome of British craftmanship with features including sterling silver badging and unique paint finish.
Aston Martin lovers will undoubtedly be queueing up to get their hands on the prized cars – even though the firm won’t reveal how much each model will cost.
The paint finish is particularly impressive since the lads in the paintshop have liased with the designers and the finish graduates from dark to light – and it’s highlighted where each graduated effect sits.
It normally takes around 50 hours to carry out the paint work for an Aston Martin and the special editions have added an extra 18 hours to the process.
Handcrafted in the firm’s base in Gaydon, Warwickshire, the models come with a gift box packed with goodies such as glass keys and pouches made from leather matching the model’s interior trim, solid silver cufflinks and a solid silver pen.
There’s also a polishing cloth to help owners keep the silver badges and plaques in shiny condition. (Like it will get used!)
Essentially, it’s a series of great cars which have been tarted up with some expensive extras and the bottom line is that if you need to ask the price then you can’t afford one.
