Vantage AMR limited editions launched

Aston Martin has unveiled the first production models from its new AMR sub-brand. The V8 Vantage AMR and V12 Vantage AMR – which are both available in Coupe and Roadster guises – have been influenced by Aston Martin Racing's motorsport activities.

There's a selection of five eye-catching colour schemes. Perhaps the most recognisable is the 'Halo Pack', as this mimics the title-winning V8 Vantage GTE driven by Nicki Thiim and Marco Sørensen in last year's FIA World Endurance Championship. Stirling Green paintwork is combined with Lime Green accents, plus Union Flag enamelled Aston Martin badges can be fitted free of charge.

Alternatively, customers can choose Ultramarine Black with a Blue graphic, Zaffre Blue with a Red graphic, Scintilla Silver with a Grey graphic or Stratus White with an Orange graphic.

The various cabin palettes are intended to complement the exterior liveries. Coupes have leather and Alcantara upholstery, while Roadsters feature all-leather interiors.

Mechanically, the V8 Vantage AMR remains standard, so 430 bhp (321 kW / 436 PS) is delivered via either a six-speed manual gearbox or a Sportshift automated manual transmission.

Conversely, the V12 Vantage AMR's output is up from the usual 563 bhp (420 kW / 571 PS) to 595 bhp (444 kW / 603 PS). Its seven-speed transmission can also be ordered in either manual or Sportshift forms.

Aston Martin is hoping that buyers are going to be tempted by a wide variety of cost options. These include numerous carbon fibre components (for example door mirror caps, a front grille, sports seats and a full Aero Kit), as well as some forged alloy wheels and a titanium exhaust system.

Prices for the cars start at £97,995 in the UK and €126,995 in Germany. Deliveries are due to begin during the fourth quarter of 2017, but V8 Vantage AMR and V12 Vantage AMR build volumes have been set at 200 and 100 units respectively.
