Luxury British sports car maker Aston Martin has unveiled three handcrafted year of the dragon special editions at the 2012 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition. The Dragon 88 Limited Edition models debuting at Beijing will be able as DBS Volante, Virage Coupe and V8 Vantage S Coupe.
Each of the 88 cars will feature bespoke details. Among the detail changes, 24-carat gold is applied to the signature Aston Martin wing badges on each car. The cars are also finished in one of three special colours selected to chime with traditional Chinese art and imagery.
The trio will be available in three different colors; Volcano Red, which represents the fire of the dragon, Amethyst Red, which symbolizes wealth, peace, protection and intuition, and Champagne Gold, which illustrates the dragon’s status and prestige, wealth and fortune.
Chinese customers can opt for Spicy Red, Chancellor Red and Deep Purple interior colors. Piano black trim, dragon-embroidered headrests and gold inlays are the final touches of the Chinese-style Astons.
