One of the most noteworthy elements of the exterior is definitely the Eclat Red body paint, which clearly distinguishes this car with other Vanquish S models. It is the same paint color with the original Red Arrows, and the Eclat naming is taken from Red Arrows’ motto.
Besides the attractive body color, the exterior and interior details are also specially designed to give fighter jet vibe. Some side blue side stripes resemble the smoke trails of a fighter jet. In addition, the design and pattern on the roof of the car also look like fighter jet’s canopy.
The cabin is also graced with various aviation-inspired elements. The green upholstery is actually the same color with Red Arrow’s pilot flight suits. Furthermore, you can also find many Red Arrow form graphic all around the cabin, such as in the door cards and the back of the seats.
Vanquish S Red Arrow is a two-seater car in which the rear seat is ditched to make room for storage. There are two crash helmets with Red Arrow motifs there as well as a race suit, bespoke bomber jacket, car cover, a luggage set, a build book and also a scale model of the car as well as the original Hawk Red Arrow jet. In addition, the steering wheel comes with an RAF-inspired switch gear, which is similar to the one we see in One-77.
This is a special limited edition car. Therefore, to make sure the future owners can feel how special the car is, the engine of each of the car receives a unique plaque that has the signature of the corresponding Red Arrow pilots.
It seems like there will be no mechanical changes for the Red Arrows Edition. It means the special edition car will stick with the familiar V12 engine that churns out 592 bhp and 465-pound feet of torque. Furthermore, the car’s 0-62 mph time and top speed will remain at 3.5 seconds and 201 mph respectively.
