2012 – Aston Martin unveiled in Beijing, China is a sophisticated version of the sports DBS Volante, the Virage Coupe and the V8 Vantage S Coupe, named Aston Martin Dragon 88.

The name is an allusion to the year of the dragon and the number ’88’ is the number of copies of the variant to be produced and a suspicious lucky number. Pronounced like ‘ba’ in Chinese, number 8 has a similar sound to that of ‘fa’ and would mean to convey prosperity, wealth and fortune. Therefore, number 8 is considered the luckiest number by businessmen. It is such an auspicious number that arranging this number as 88 or 8888 or even in larger arrays signifies greater joy and enormous luck.
