This is one of those times when you know you just bought a special car

Taking ownership of an Aston Martin V8 Vantage S is cool enough in its own right. But you know what’s better than that? Being only one of five people to take delivery of the super limited Vantage V8 S Blades Edition. But you know what’s even better than that? Taking delivery of the Vantage V8 S Blades Edition and ending up on board a plane with a member of the Blades aerobatic team. Now that’s what I call a special delivery.

I can’t even begin to imagine the thrill of waking up knowing that you’re finally going to receive a car as special as the Vantage V8 S Blades Edition and then finding out that the dealership that’ll hand over the keys to your bespoke Aston had planned an elaborate surprise that included an aerobatic flight with the team in which the cars you bought are commemorating. These five owners had that experience and not only that, there were also treated to some precious track time with their new cars, complete with tutorials from no less than the Aston Martin professional driving team.

I guess buying a car as exclusive as the Vantage V8 S comes with perks unlike any other. Makes me wonder if the handshake and the pat on the back I got when I took delivery of my Honda Civic was enough to make me feel special.
