Aston Martin unleashes V8 & V12 Vantage S Red Bull Racing Edition

With the 2017 Formula 1 World Championship set to kick off in Melbourne on 26 March, Aston Martin has unveiled its latest additions to the Vantage range – the V8 and V12 Vantage S Red Bull Racing Editions.

Claimed as true collectibles, the limited edition models are crafted by the marque’s in-house personalisation service Q by Aston Martin. Designed to celebrate the two brands’ unique ‘Innovation Partnership’, Aston Martin’s latest offering takes approval from Red Bull Racing drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen, with their signatures adorning both sill and inspection plaques.

Available with Aston Martin’s characterful 4.7-litre V8 and 6.0-litre V12 naturally aspirated engines, both Vantage Red Bull Racing Editions are equipped with a range of distinguishing features for the most devoted Formula 1 enthusiast.

Taking inspiration from Red Bull Racing’s distinctive race livery, the Red Bull Racing Vantage features deep Mariana Blue paint finish as standard, with gloss Tungsten Silver or satin Mariana Blue exteriors available as options.

Complementing the bespoke paint finish is a race-inspired carbon fibre splitter, diffuser, grille and side strakes. Red infills on the carbon fibre grille and yellow calipers complete the iconic colour scheme.

Inside, further sporting features include the Red Bull Racing headrest embroidery, carbon fibre trim inlays, diamond-quilting and an alcantara steering wheel complete with 12 o’clock accent stripe.

Customers may opt for their sill and final inspection plaques to be signed by either Daniel Ricciardo or Max Verstappen, providing the ultimate seal of approval and cementing their exclusivity.

“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”, said Aston Martin President & CEO, Dr. Andy Palmer. “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 set to take place from Q2 2017. Interested buyers should enquire directly with their local dealership for pricing information.
