Aston Martin V8 and V12 Vantage S Red Bull Racing Editions revealed

Aston Martin announces new special edition versions of V8 and V12 Vantage S with Red Bull F1 theme

Just in time for the 2017 Formula One season opener in March, Aston Martin has announced two new special edition models that tie in the British brand's partnership with the Red Bull Racing team.

The Vantage S Red Bull Racing Edition is available as a V8 or V12, and comes with a special paint job in Mariana Blue (though Tungsten Silver is available, as well as a satin-finish blue) with red highlights on the grille that hint at the Red Bull livery. The yellow brake calipers and carbon fibre trim make up the rest of the exterior changes.

Inside the cabin the Red Bull special editions get unique detailing on the headrests, carbon fibre trim around the interior and an alcantara steering wheel. You can even have your inspection plate signed by Red Bull's F1 drivers Daniel Ricciardo or Max Verstappen.

Aston Martin CEO 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.”

The cars are available to order now from Aston Martin dealers, with deliveries from the second quarter of 2017.
