On January 15, Aston Martin became 100 years old and to celebrate its birthday, it announced the launch of 100 examples of each of its model lines, including the V8 Vantage, DB9, Rapide and Vanquish – but not the Cygnet (we wonder why…), which are offered for sale worldwide now.
All Centenary Editions are individually numbered and are finished in a unique graduated color, while other exterior specialties include solid sterling silver Aston Martin wing badges with tailored ‘trans flux’ enamel inlay and a special Aston Martin hallmark.
Inside, all models feature "Deep Soft" black leather (a treatment previously featured only in the One-77), with contrasting silver stitching, a special silver thread embroidery of the Aston Martin wings in the head restraints and solid sterling silver sill plaques individually numbered with an Aston Martin hallmark.
Buyers of the Centenary Edition Aston Martins will also receive a bespoke presentation box containing exclusive gifts to mark the first 100 years of the company. These include two glass keys, two bespoke key pouches made from leather matching the car’s interior upholstery, solid silver cufflinks with the Aston Martin script, solid silver Rollerball pen and Bang & Olufsen headphones.
Aston Martin CEO, Dr Ulrich Bez, commented: "Clearly, the centenary of Aston Martin is a great occasion for our business, our customers, and our fans around the world. It is only right, then, that we have developed these exceptional Centenary Edition models which will, I am sure, quickly become highly desirable and sought-after."
He added: "The chance to own and enjoy such a stunning piece of Aston Martin’s heritage is made all the more rare by the fact that we are limiting numbers to just 100 of each model line. I am sure supporters and enthusiasts of the brand worldwide will be anxious to secure their chosen model quickly!"
