Red Bull Aston Martins ready to go
|Updated: 15:30 22-02-2017|
The latest limited edition Aston Martin Vantage to break cover shows that the company is quite literally bullish about the future.
Available in V8 or V12 guise, the new cars have been built to celebrate Aston's on-going partnership with Red Bull Racing and to mark the start of the 2017 Formula 1 season, which officially gets underway on March 26.
The car gets a Red Bull-inspired Mariana Blue exterior paint finish with carbon fiber spoiler, splitter and front grille. The grille gets a Red Bull red finish and the brake calipers are painted yellow.
Inside there is carbon fiber trim, Red Bull embroidered in the quilted seats and an Alcantara wrapped steering wheel complete with 12 o'clock marker.
The finishing touch is an optional autograph from one of Red Bull's current F1 drivers — Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen — that will be inlaid in the doorsill.
"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," said Aston Martin CEO, Dr. Andy Palmer.
