Is this the most British car ever built?

Aston Martin Vanquish S Red Arrows special edition

ONLY Aston Martin could have a Q Division.

James Bond’s favourite car brand suddenly gets a slice of 007 in reality.

This could well be the car with the most Britishness ever built. An Aston Martin Red Arrows special edition, built by a James Bond-type Q Division!

Not much stirs the soul more than a sight of the Arrows in full flight and this Aston oozes than kind of spirit.

It’s based on a Vanquish S but most of the bodywork is wrapped in a beautifully bold ‘Eclat Red’ named after the Red Arrows’ motto and the same hue as the aircraft livery.

Then there’s a plethora of classy touches. Like white and blue streaks up the sides and a white ‘smoke trail’.

The roof gets a naked carbon fibre finish while there’s also Union flag enamel wing badges and glorious titanium sports exhaust.

The aerodynamic drama also continues on the inside.

There’s Pinewood green trim and seatbelts which are a nod to the colour of old flight suits and for real class the Red Arrows logo is emblazoned on the seat backs and transmission tunnel. Even the switchgear gets a fighter jet feel.

Only 10 will be built in total, though only nine will go on sale – the final car will be gifted to the RAF Benevolent Fund.

What a very cool car.

You better hope the Lottery numbers come up – and then join the Q!
