Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Spitfire 80 Special Edition Launched

Aston Martin have unveiled a special-edition V12 Vantage S Spitfire 80 to celebrate the passing of 80 years since the first Supermarine Spitfire World War 2 fighter took to the sky. They will only be sold at Aston Martin Cambridge and command a price of £180,000 each as the Q division is responsible for this build. What does this special edition get you?

  • Components made by the Aircraft Restoration Company at Duxford
  • Tailpipe tips finished in a rainbow ‘bloom’ effect to match the Spitfires exhausts
  • Aluminium bar in cabin inspired by Spitfire’s rear strut brace
  • Satin carbon fibre diffuser and front spoiler
  • Colour coded bonnet louvres
  • Solid sterling silver Aston wings badges
  • Paint only in Duxford Green colour
  • Yellow pinstripes along the sides and bootlid to mimic the look of a Sptifire
  • ‘Spitfire 80’ logo is embroidered in black onto the headrests
The handover takes place in the AirSpace exhibition at Imperial War Museum Duxford on the 18 October which includes a drive along the Duxford runway before watching a MK1 Spitfire demonstration. No changes under the hood so it comes with the same 565bhp 5.9-litre V12 engine as the regular V12 Vantage S. Performance also remains the same, with the 0-100 km/h dash taking 3.9sec. Is this car worth the £39,505 premium over the regular V12 Vantage S? Well that is for you to decide.
