EXCLUSIVE IN SA: New buyers of Aston Martins can personalise their sports car through Q by Aston Martin services in South Africa. Image: Aston Martin

South African drivers are joining a small global group of customers who, when buying an Aston Martin, request  that their new ride be made even more unique.

The automaker’s sports cars can become that much more exclusive with customisation options courtesy of Q by Aston Martin service and South African dealer Daytona.

The most recent example of the group’s capabilities in SA is a 2015 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster, finished in iconic Zagato Fiamma red with a black leather interior.


Working closely with Aston Martin’s design team, Daytona created a sports car like no other – even the trademark Aston Martin wings badge was painstakingly coated in gold by the same jeweller that hand-produces each badge for the brand.

General manager of Aston Martin South Africa, Rens Rademeyer, said: "Each time we receive a new car for our showroom the air is filled with excitement but the arrival of the Fiamma Red V12 Vantage S Roadster definitely set the bar higher still.

"Not only is it the fastest convertible yet produced by Aston Martin, it is also in a colour created for the Zagato – making the visual experience unique. It was truly amazing to have the 2015 V12 Vantage S Roadster on our showroom floor – albeit for a short period before it was delivered to its lucky owner."
