Celebrating an iconic car and a world-class aerobatic team, five happy owners recently received the VIP treatment when they picked up the keys to their Aston Martin Cambridge V8 Vantage S ‘Blades Edition’ and experienced a day to remember.

Getting off to a flying start, the new owners along with their guests took to the sky in an aerobatic flight experience with The Blades team and were shown the ropes on how to fly a helicopter.

Back on the ground, the owners took to the tracks and experienced real driving thrills with an F1 racing simulator and also drove their new sports car with the Aston Martin professional driving team.

Easy on the eyes with plenty of power, the Aston Martin V8 Vantage S is truly distinctive and one of the most dynamic cars on the road and the Aston Martin Cambridge V8 Vantage S ‘Blades Edition’ certainly lived up to expectations.

With the timeless beauty expected from the V8 Vantage S, the Aston Martin Cambridge ‘Blades Edition’ has been tailored by the luxury brand's Q by Aston Martin bespoke personalisation service. Designed with exceptional engineering and unparalleled craftsmanship, it featured Jet Black painted rear lamp infills, all Satin Black painted forged 10 spoke lightweight wheels as well as orange leather detailing in the carpet, shift paddles and seats.

To complete the VIP experience day and make it as memorable as possible, Aston Martin Cambridge presented customers with a matching black and orange leather photo album of the unique car’s production life story.

Andy Offer, one of the new owners of the Aston Martin Cambridge V8 Vantage S ‘Blades Edition’, comments: “The Blades edition V8 Vantage S is a truly bespoke car, with a subtle hint of orange and a number of unique features, the car looked amazing. Driving the car on a private runway was incredible and really allowed me to explore the car’s full potential. The Aston Martin Team at Cambridge delivered a fabulous car in the most exceptional way. For me, this was a one-off day and I will never forget it.”

Simon Lane, Dealer Principal at Aston Martin Cambridge, adds: “The adrenaline fuelled day was remarkable and combined both aviation and automation perfectly. We are delighted it was truly memorable for all of our customers.

“We would like to thank everyone involved for working so hard to make this a special day and most importantly we would like to thank our customers, we hope they love their new vehicles as much as we do.”
