Can You Handle The Aston Martin V8 Vantage S Blades Edition?

Aston Martin V8 Vantage S Blades

Let’s find out, together! Aston Martin Cambridge has commissioned a new special edition of the Vantage S, one that’s meant to be inspired and honor the Blades aerobatic display team. Called the Aston Martin Vantage S Blades Edition, the slightly revised Aston shows off a chic silver exterior, with a black roof and orange accents.

The special edition also brags about black alloys, orange brake calipers, and a carbon fiber front spoiler. Inside the cabin, you’ll probably notice the minor changes, which include black leather seats with contrasting orange accents, the Blades logo on the headrests, carbon fiber trim and orange piping on the carpets.

The Vantage S Blades Edition is expected to set you back somewhere around £119,950, and you’ll have to wait until March to drive it around town. Powering up this special edition is the same 4.7-liter V8 engine from the standard model, that’s good for around 430 hp and 361 pound-feet of torque.

As a result, the Ason Martin V8 Vantage will do 0 to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds and reach an impressive top speed of 190 mph. As you’d expect, production will be limited – to only 5 units – each vehicle featuring its own unique identifier linking it directly to one of the Blades aircraft – a cool added bonus, don’t you think?
