Aston Martin has unveiled the V8 and V12 Vantage S Red Bull Racing Editions, its latest additions to the Vantage range. With the 2017 FIA Formula 1 World Championship set to kick off on 26 March, the timing couldn’t have been better.
Unique in-house personalisation service, Q by Aston Martin, has crafted two collectibles in these special editions, honouring the ‘Innovation Partnership’ between the two brands. Red Bull Racing drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen have placed not only their approvals, but their signatures, upon these latest releases.
Both Vantage Red Bull Racing Editions come fully equipped with a range of features for devoted Formula 1 enthusiasts. And they are available with Aston Martin’s characteristic V8 and V12 naturally aspirated power units.
Surely, Aston Martin built on the appeal of the sports-focused Vantage range with these. The special editions combine stunning looks and an engaging experience for an idyllic cruise in any setting. Whether along a quiet country road or a noisy inner-city motorway, you’d be turning heads and enjoying the ride.
Aston Martin has finished the cars to a deep Mariana Blue as standard. Though, gloss Tungsten Silver or satin Mariana Blue exteriors are also optional. Of course, colour schemes were selected with influence from Red Bull Racing’s distinctive race livery.
Race-inspired carbon fibre splitter, diffuser, grille and side strakes complement Aston Martin’s signature paint finish. While red infills on the carbon fibre grille and yellow calipers complete the iconic colour scheme.
Indeed, racing features continue on the interior. These include Red Bull Racing headrest embroidery, carbon fibre trim inlays, diamond-quilting and an Alcantara steering wheel with accent stripe.
Aston Martin Vantage S Red Bull – Exclusivity
Moreover, owners may opt for either Daniel Ricciardo or Max Verstappen to sign their sill and final inspection plaques. This extra feature provides the ultimate seal of approval and cements the car’s exclusivity.
Aston Martin President & CEO, Dr. Andy Palmer said, “Motorsport is and will always be a key part of Aston Martin’s DNA and both the V8 and V12 Vantage S Red Bull Racing Editions bring that ethos straight to our customers. With the 2017 FIA Formula 1 World Championship® set to begin soon, I hope that the purchase of these models will bring the racing season that little bit closer for those lucky few customers who can’t wait for it to begin”.
Deliveries are scheduled for Spring 2017. For further information including RRP, customers should enquire directly with their local dealership.
