With the 2017 FIA Formula 1 World Championship set to kick off on 26 March, Aston Martin has unveiled its latest additions to the Vantage range; the V8 and V12 Vantage S Red Bull Racing Editions.
These special edition models have been created by the marque’s in-house personalisation service; Q by Aston Martin, while featuring signatures of Red Bull Racing drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen on both sill and inspection plaques.
Available with Aston Martin’s V8 and V12 naturally aspirated power units, both Vantage Red Bull Racing Editions are also equipped with a range of distinguishing features aimed at pleasing even the most devoted Formula enthusiast.
Taking inspiration from Red Bull Racing’s race livery, both the Red Bull Racing Editions will be treated to a deep Mariana Blue paint finish as standard. For those wanting a slight twist, gloss Tungsten Silver or satin Mariana Blue exteriors are also optional.
Complementing the new paint finishes are a race-inspired carbon fibre splitter, diffuser, grille and side strakes. Red infills on the carbon fibre grille and yellow calipers complete the special colour schemes.
Inside, the Aston Martin V8 And V12 Vantage Red Bull Editions can be had with Red Bull Racing headrest embroidery, carbon fibre trim inlays, diamond-quilting and an alcantara steering wheel with 12 o’clock accent stripe.
Deliveries of the special edition models are set to take place from Q2 2017, with prices being available upon request.
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”.
