Aston Martin X Red Bull Racing Special Editions

Aston Martin has revealed two new special editions in collaboration with Red Bull Racing. The RBR editions feature F1 inspired additional features and styling.

The new Aston Martin Vantage Red Bull Racing Editions are in celebration of the two brands partnership. They will soon be releasing the much anticipated AM-RB 001 hypercar. The special editions showcase what is to come and were developed by Aston Martin’s Q personalisation division.

The bespoke RBR edition Vantage S will be available in both V8 and V12 powertrains.  The V8 has a 4.7-litre engine producing 430bhp.  The larger 5.9-litre V10 unit produces 565bhp.

The F1 inspired cars are available in 3 bespoke colours; Marina Blue, Tungsten Silver or a satin Mariana Blue. This is contrasted with yellow highlights on the brake calipers and red infills on the carbon grille, mirroring the RBR livery. The front splitter, rear diffuser and side strakes all have a carbon fibre trim.

The interior gets some updates, including diamond-quilted leather upholstery, carbonfibre trim and the Red Bull Racing logo has been embroidered into the seats.

Buyers can also choose between a signed sill plate from either Daniel Ricciardo or Max Verstappen, both prominent racing drivers.

Order books for the RBR limited edition Vantages are now open.  It expected that only around 30 will be produced and those interested have to contact Aston Martin directly or through dealers. Deliveries will begin in the second quarter of the year.
