Aston Martin collaborates with Valentino for charity
For Cash & Rocket
Aston Martin have joined forces with iconic Italian fashion house Valentino to unveil a new distinct V12 Vanquish Volante, covered in a camouflage print. Featuring Valentino’s hallmark finish, the automobile and fashion forces have combined to create the new vehicle for Cash & Rocket – a charitable organisation that enables luxury brands around the globe to promote its products in unique ways and simultaneously raise money for charity.
Valentino design director duo – Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli – collaborated with the Aston Martin bespoke service (Q by Aston Martin) to create the striking new car, which is built from super-light aluminium and features a carbon fibre exterior, and the ability to reach the speed of 317 km/h (197 mph), and hit 0 – 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds.
CEO and founder of Cash & Rocket, Julie Brangstrup said: "I am excited that we have been able to bring together two lead partners for our 2015 event to create such an amazing vehicle and then for them to allow us to auction it to the benefit of our three charity partners – shine on Sierra Leone, Orphanaid Africa and Sumbandila. To make the investment of time, money and creative energy and to produce a unique item is inspiring and truly embodies the spirit of Cash & Rocket and our ladies – don’t just be something, do something!"
