Aston Martin Celebrates 100th Anniversary With Limited Edition Cars [Pics]
The iconic British car maker's Centenary Edition Vanquish features sterling silver decals.
To mark 100 years of being a top luxury brand, Aston Martin designed special limited edition cars. The Centenary Edition specification will be available worldwide on 100 examples of each of the British car maker’s model lines: V8 Vantage, DB9, Rapide, and Vanquish.
The vehicles’ exterior features solid sterling silver Aston Martin wings badges with tailored ‘trans flux’ enamel inlay and a special Aston Martin hallmark. A unique graduated paint finish, which adds 18 hours to the paint process, demonstrates the brand’s commitment to bespoke luxury. It is meticulously built by adding special ‘tinters’ to create the darker inner color. This custom-made mixture is then applied to each panel by hand, using a special mini-jet spray gun.
The interior features Deep Soft black leather with contrasting silver stitching, a special silver thread embroidery of the Aston Martin wings in the head restraints, and solid sterling silver sill plaques individually numbered with an Aston Martin hallmark.
Each Centenary Edition model is supplied with a presentation box containing two glass keys, two bespoke key pouches, solid silver cufflinks featuring the Aston Martin script, a solid silver Rollerball pen, high quality Bang & Olufsen headphones, and a silver polishing cloth for keeping the badges and plaques shiny.
