Ahead of the 2017 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, Aston Martin enhances the Vantage family of modern sports car with classic ideals. The true collectibles V8 and V12 Vantage S Red Bull Racing Editions have been created by the marque’s in-house personalisation service, Q by Aston Martin. Celebrating the two brands’ unique “Innovation Partnership”, Aston Martin’s latest global offering takes approval from Red Bull Racing drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen, with their signatures adorning both sill and inspection plaques.
Although both, V8 and V12 Vantage S Red Bull Racing Editions, are fitted with a range of distinguishing features for the most devoted Formula 1 aficionados, the cars still draw power from Aston Martin’s characterful V8 and V12 naturally aspirated units. Additionally they still rock the appeal of the sports-focused Vantage range, however the new models deliver a blend of eye-catching looks and an engaging and visceral experience.
Taking inspiration from Red Bull Racing’s distinctive race livery, the exterior of the car dazzles with Mariana Blue paint finish, however, owners may opt for a gloss Tungsten Silver or satin Mariana Blue exteriors. Complementing Aston Martin’s signature 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.
The interior of the car is accentuated with 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.
Deliveries are set to take place from Q2 2017.
