Beijing Show 2012 Highlights: 2012 Aston Martin Dragon 88

Aston Martin has taken the wraps off three ‘Year of the Dragon’ special edition models at the Beijing motor show.

Available on DBS Volante, Virage Coupe and V8 Vantage S Coupe models, the Dragon 88 Limited Edition-spec cars (of which there are 88 in total) are finished in one of three colours - Amethyst Red, Volcano Red and Champagne Gold - and feature 24-carat gold wing badges.

Each car's front grille, bonnet meshes and side vents are finished in chrome and 10-spoke lightweight forged alloys (unique to each Dragon model) come as standard.

Inside the cabin, Dragon 88 cars are clad in either Spicy Red, Deep Purple and Chancellor Red colours (each specific to the exterior colour), with Piano Black and gold trim used on the dashboard. Each car's headrest also features an embroidered dragon while sill plates get a laser-etched plaque with each car's individual number. Standard kit also comprises a 1000W Bang & Olufsen audio system.

Aston Martin CEO Ulrich Bez said: “The stunning Dragon 88 sports cars – hand-built by our world-class craftspeople in England – reflect the design flair and technical excellence of the luxurious Aston Martin brand”.
