SOME COOL PHOTOS OF THE UNIQUE RED ARROWS-INSPIRED ASTON MARTIN VANQUISH S

The Aston Martin Vanquish S has been designed to emulate the experience of piloting a Red Arrows Hawk jet

Unveiled on Apr. 9, 2017, the cool car that you see in the photos of this article is one of the ten Red Arrows-inspired Aston Martin Vanquish S.

Commissioned to celebrate two of the most iconic marques in British history and engineering, the Vanquish S Red Arrows car is a unique tribute to the Royal Air Force (RAF) Aerobatic Team.

The car in fact marries the exceptional craftsmanship and unforgettable driving experience of an Aston Martin with the iconic Red Arrows brand.

Approved by the Ministry of Defence and the Royal Air Force, this is one of the most exclusive Aston Martin cars ever built: actually the Vanquish S Red Arrows collaboration honours the nation’s national treasure and world-renowned aerobatic team, the Red Arrows and the car has been designed to emulate the experience of piloting a Red Arrows Hawk jet.

Noteworthy Aston Martin Cambridge has donated one of the limited edition cars, Red 10, to the RAF Benevolent Fund, who will raffle it off with all funds going to the charity supporting RAF personnel past and present and their families.
