We’re just a few days away from metaphorically pulling the covers off the hugely anticipated Red Bull racing car RB13, but it isn’t the only rare and exclusive high performance motor making its debut this February. Also launching is Aston Martin’s latest mighty beast – the Vantage S Red Bull Racing Edition.
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.
V8 & V12 VANTAGE S RED BULL RACING EDITION, Aston Martin’s latest additions to the Vantage range, take 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. 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 fibre splitter, diffuser, grille and side strakes. Red infills on the carbon fibre grille and yellow calipers complete the colour scheme.
The interior features Red Bull Racing headrest embroidery, carbon fibre trim inlays, and a colour-coded leather steering wheel complete with 12 o’clock accent stripe.
Future owners may opt for their sill and final inspection plaques to be signed by either Daniel Ricciardo or Max Verstappen.
“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,” says Aston Maring’s in-house personalisation service Q by Aston Martin.
Aston Martin marks the 87th Geneva international Motor Show with a significant trio of major debuts.
In addition to being the global motor show debut of the acclaimed new Vanquish S – the most powerful and dynamic iteration of Aston Martin’s Super GT – the British luxury brand is also proud to announce the European show debut of the AM-RB 001. This ongoing collaboration between Aston Martin and Red Bull Advanced Technologies, the AM-RB 001 is a thrilling demonstration of technological innovation and design sophistication, resulting in a truly contemporary hypercar.
Finally, Aston Martin will be showcasing the marque’s enhanced Q by Aston Martin bespoke service with the unveiling of ‘Q by Aston Martin – Collection’ at Geneva.
