Using a helicopter, a brand new Aston Martin Vanquish, and the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai, the iconic car maker continued its celebrations marking 100 years since the founding of Aston Martin by completing the audacious stunt, airlifting the GT car 1000 feet above the ground and onto the famous hotel’s rooftop helipad.

Along with other celebrations due to take place worldwide over the next 12 months, Aston Martin is also offering exclusive Centenary Edition models of its V8 Vantage, DB9, Rapide, and Vanquish, with just 100 examples of each being made.
