Aston Martin Vantage With New Vaned Grille Sold. Another Two Units On The Way.
The private education business in Malaysia is thriving because many Malaysians have no choice but to save up for years to provide a decent enough education for their kids to be a little ahead of the rest in our declining education system.
Just look at how some of the Ministers speak and conduct themselves. Meanwhile, most private institution owners are not offering discounts during this tough economic times even though they are saving on electricity, water, security and more as students take their classes from home.
This is why private education institute owners like Dato’ Idrus Bin Mohd Satha can afford super luxury sports cars like this latest ‘Vaned’ grille equipped Aston Martin Vantage which is priced from a base price of RM678,000.00, while the Aston Martin Vantage Liquid Crimson priced from RM851,000.00 (both price stated excluding duties and taxes).
Yes, most super luxury car buyers in Malaysia do not pay any import duties as they buy their cars duty free and ‘store’ them in Langkawi for a few years and then bring them back with a much lower tax payment.
Meanwhile, every year they are allowed to bring their treasured tax free supercar out of Langkawi for 30 days to drive around and make an impression with their friends and family.
The rest of us will manage with our paid in full tax cars daily.
Aston Martin Kuala Lumpur has introduced this customized unit which is the Aston Martin Vantage in Liquid Crimson. It is the first Vantage with the new optional front grille in Malaysia. It comes soon after the Vantage F1 edition was shown in March 2021.
In 2020, Aston Martin announced the new grille style to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Vantage nameplate. The “Vaned” grille, seen on many legendary Aston Martins, has become a design feature of the marque and is now available for Vantage.
The vaned front grille offers a softer and more refined front-end choice in comparison to the standard aggressive and muscular Vantage design that Aston Martin Kuala Lumpur launched in 2018.
Featuring five horizontal vanes, it also includes a more subtle bumper and splitter design to work in harmony with the new vaned front grille. The vaned front grille can be specified in either of the two colour options; Silver or Black, to perfectly complement the aesthetic and match the other trim choices available on the exterior of the Vantage models.
Aside from the new front grille, Aston Martin Vantage Liquid Crimson also features the newly introduced options by Aston Martin Lagonda this year – with the Black Wings Badges and the 20” Snowflake Wheel. The new wheels are 6.23kg lighter than the standard cast wheels. Added with the exterior black package (black painted front grille, mirror caps, roof panel, window surround finisher, rear diffuser Insert and blades), it injects an extra boost of energy to its sportiness.
The exterior paint colour, Liquid Crimson, deep and luxurious, emphasising the passion behind the Aston Martin brand. The liquid-like quality of this lustrous colour highlights every body feature, accentuates every line and flatters every curve with an exuberant dynamism that makes you want to get in and drive.
Aston Martin is renowned for its leather and Vantage Liquid Crimson’s interior features the Caithness leather. Caithness leather is a very high-end, soft and natural product choice to create a luxury interior. The key to this luxury feel is milling which is a softening process when manufacturing leather – the longer the leather is milled, the softer and more luxurious the leather will feel.
The leathers are available in either monotone or duotone split pattern. Vantage Liquid Crimson’s interior features duotone environment, with the combination of Obsidian Black and Lords Red. It highlights the beautiful curves of Vantage’s interior environment.
There is another 2 units of highly personalised Vantage vaned grille series which will be arriving soon for retail. Subsequently, there will be a minimum waiting period of 8 months.
