OWN a Limited edition Aston Martin for £20!
Tickets are priced at £20 for a chance at winning one of the ‘Red 10’ models, with all proceeds going to the RAF Benevolent Fund.
The creation of the ten ‘Vanquish S Red Arrows’ is a unique tribute to the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows.
The collection is a collaboration between Q by Aston Martin, the Royal Air Force and Aston Martin Cambridge. The Ministry of Defence have also approved the models.
Aston Martin hope to raise around £2.5m for the charity with the raffle.
The cars have been designed in a way to mimic the look and performance of the aircraft marque.
They have been coloured in the same red as the Hawk aircraft flown by the Red Arrows and each car is uniquely paired with a jet, matching its military serial numbers throughout the car.
The serial numbers are embroidered on the passenger airbag and the Red Arrows crest features on the screen’s veneer.
Headrests have ‘Diamond Nine’ embroidery, with the seat fabric colours matching that of the Hawk’s ejection seat.
The Audio on/off system switches are also made with recycled parts from the jets.
The Vanquish S provides customers with a 6 litre 595bhp V12 engine, doing 0-62mph in just 3.5 seconds. Its top speed stands at 201mph for the carbon fibre supercar.
Links to the Red Arrows don’t just stop with the design. The models come accessorised with two custom Red Arrows-inspired racing suits, racing helmets and leather jackets (worn by the team).
A themed car cover and a leather photo album featuring high-quality images of the vehicle are also provided.
