With the 2017 FIA Formula 1 World Championship set to kick off on 26 March, Aston Martin unveiled its latest additions to the Vantage range. And they are really special – the V8 and V12 Vantage S Red Bull Racing Editions.
These true collectibles are a creation by the marque’s in-house personalisation 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. Their signatures adorn both sill and inspection plaques.
The cars are available with Aston Martin’s characterful V8 and V12 power units. Both Vantage Red Bull Racing Editions have 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.
The cars are in 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 carbon fibre splitter, diffuser, grille and side strakes. Red infills on the carbon fibre grille and yellow calipers complete the iconic colour scheme.
Inside, customers can expect further sporting features, including Red Bull Racing headrest embroidery, carbon fibre 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 have Daniel Ricciardo’s or Max Verstappen’s signature. That provides 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. 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 start from Q2 2017. For further information including RRP, customers should enquire directly with their local dealership.
