Aston Martin Honors Its Oldest Surviving Car With A Special Vantage Roadster

Although Aston Martin was originally founded in 1913 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford, the timing of the First World War meant that it would be some years before the brand could put its prototypes to the test. Among the oldest surviving of such vehicles is ‘A3,’ the third of five developmental chassis to roll off the line at the Abingdon Road factory prior to the start of series production.

In celebration of No.3’s centenary, Aston Martin has unveiled a highly exclusive special edition of its Vantage Roadster, dressing it to the nines with the help of the Q customization service. Around the car, you’ll find countless details inspired by the A3 design, with the grille outfitted in black square mesh and accented by bright aluminum, the side fender panels given a swatch of saddle leather as a nod to pre-war bonnet straps, and the set 20″ forged wheels finished to look like old-school spokes. Add to that a Chestnut Tan leather interior, some heritage Aston Martin embroidery, and a set of specially cast brass instrument bezels, and you’re left with a fitting tribute for an iconic automobile. Limited to just three examples, you can check it out at the link below.
