With the 2017 Formula 1 World Championships 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 true collectibles have been created by the marque’s in-house personalization 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.
Available with Aston Martin’s characterful V8 and V12 naturally aspirated power units, both Vantage Red Bull Racing Editions are equipped with a range of distinguishing features for the most devoted Formula 1 enthusiast.
Building on the appeal of the sports-focused Vantage range, the models deliver a blend of eye-catching looks and an engaging and visceral experience for the perfect cruise along the Great Ocean Road, Adelaide Hills or even Melbourne’s Albert Park, site of the season opening race.
Taking inspiration from Red Bull Racing’s distinctive race livery, owners 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 Aston Martin’s signature paint finish is a race-inspired carbon fiber splitter, diffuser, grille and side strakes. Red infills on the carbon fibre grille and yellow calipers complete the iconic color scheme.
Inside, customers can expect further sporting features, including Red Bull Racing headrest embroidery, carbon fiber 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 Ricciardo or Verstappen, providing the ultimate seal of approval and cementing their exclusivity.
Deliveries of the Aston Martin Vantage Red Bull Racing edition line-up is set to take place from Q2 2017.
