As the first race of the 2017 Formula 1 World Championship draws near, Aston Martin has revealed Red Bull Racing Editions of its V8 and V12 Vantage S.
Created by the marque’s in-house personalisation service ‘Q by Aston Martin’ and celebrating the British brand's 'Innovation Partnership’ with Red Bull Racing, the special edition Vantage S models received a seal approval from Red Bull drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen - with their signatures adorning both sill and inspection plaques.
Available with either a V8 and V12 naturally aspirated power unit, both Vantage Red Bull Racing Editions are equipped with a range of distinguishing features for the F1 enthusiast. Taking inspiration from Red Bull Racing’s race livery, a deep Mariana Blue paint finish comes as standard. For those wanting a slight twist, gloss Tungsten Silver or satin Mariana Blue exteriors are also optional.
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 colour scheme.
Inside, further sporting features include Red Bull Racing headrest embroidery, carbon fibre trim inlays, diamond-quilting and an alcantara steering wheel complete with 12 o’clock accent stripe.
The sill and final inspection plaques can be ‘signed’ by either Daniel Ricciardo or Max Verstappen, providing the ultimate seal of approval and cementing their 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 set to take place from Q2 2017 - pricing on demand.
