Aston Martin Cambridge has brought together two of the most iconic marquees in British history through the creation of ten ‘Vanquish S Red Arrows’ models as a unique tribute to the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows, and to help raise funds for a Service charity.
The Vanquish S Red Arrows is the result of a collaboration between Q by Aston Martin, the Royal Air Force and Aston Martin Cambridge with approval from Ministry of Defence, resulting in one of the most exclusive Aston Martins ever built.
The models are packed with customised details highlighting the partnership between two world famous brands and showcasing UK engineering excellence, precision and innovation. The first nine models in the collection are available to purchase from April 10th and each will be handed to their new owners at a personalised and exclusive event that will include a look behind the scenes at Aston Martin.
Aston Martin Cambridge is donating one of the models, ‘Red 10’, to the RAF Benevolent Fund who will raffle it off with all funds going directly to the worthy charity.It is hoped this will raise £2.5 million for a cause that provides much needed support for serving and former RAF personnel.
