Dame Judi Dench opens raffle for special edition Red Arrows Aston Martin

Raffle entries have officially opened for a competition to win a special edition Aston Martin Vanquish S Red Arrows car – and the launch has had a special endorsement from Dame Judi Dench.

Raffle tickets can be purchased at a cost of £20 with funds going directly to the Royal Air Force benevolent Fund, which supports men and women in the RAF and their families.

The design is based on the RAF Red Arrows supersets and the car is one of only 10 editions available with special design features, hand-crafted interiors and aviation-inspired graphic elements.

The cars were designed as a unique tribute to the Royal Air Force aerobatic team, who are based at RAF Scampton north of Lincoln.

The company said the car is “finished in striking Eclat Red, mirroring the instantly familiar livery of the Hawks and referencing the word ‘Eclat,’ the Red Arrows’ motto.”

RAFBF said: “We’d like to say a big thank you to Dame Judi Dench (pictured) on helping us to launch the raffle. She even found time to give the car a quick wash and polish.”

To enter our raffle, you need to be aged 16 or above.
