Aston V8 Vantage S Blades edition is a brand new version of popular car even though all it features is cosmetic changes and some additional features.
The model comes as an exclusive from a dealer and it is said to be an homage for the popular aerobatic display team. The car is basically grey in color and has a touch of orange in specific spots. It is still powered by the basic 4.7-liter V8 engine. The dealer has not touched the engine at all to make sure it delivers the same performance as the original model.
But, there are so many visual cues to look forward to if you plan to buy the S Blades edition. The silvery touch is one of the most important changes and is evident as soon as you take a look at the car. There’s also the orange grille, the mirrors on the door while the black roof is an aesthetic touch. The car has brand new front splitter, air vents made of carbon fiber material and also has some Union Jack badges.
In order to let those who board the car know that you own the Aston Martin V8 Vantage S Blades edition, the Blades logo has been stitched on the seats. They are neatly stitched on the headrests which is not intrusive and easily blends with the overall interior design. Surprisingly, this is an extremely limited edition variant that you couldn’t buy anywhere else.
Only five cars of the S Blades edition will be built, confirmed the Cambridge Aston Martin dealer. It looks like an exclusive deal which people outside the country or even those outside the state will be able to avail. Unless and until you are ready to pay the additional state taxes to import the car to your place, it is not possible to buy one.
For everyone else, the company offers the V8 Vantage with all other dealers. It’s just that there won’t be the exclusive orange grille or the stitching on the headrests. The special edition costs 119,950 pounds. Buyers have the option to choose between a manual or an automatic gear box.
Everything about the S Blades edition is good and being sold by a single dealer makes it all the more exclusive than any other models released in the recent past. Let’s hope there will be something else to replace this soon and Aston Martin should make sure they make at least dozens and not just five cars.
