Aston Martin Launched Red Bull Racing Special Editions

Two special Aston Martin models have been launched to mark the so-called “Innovation Partnership” between the British luxury carmaker and Red Bull Racing. Based on the Vantage S platform, both V8 and V12 Vantage models are styled almost identically, with only three paint choices (Tungsten Silver or Mariana Blue, gloss or satin one) available. Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo, Red Bull Racing Formula 1 Championship drivers, are asked out to sign both sill and inspection plaques of the cars. Just up to 30 units of Both Red Bull Racing Special Editions models are expected to be built.

Apart from the eye-catching paint schemes, the models boast carbon fiber trim on the front splitter, side strakes, grille and diffuser. There are bright scarlet infills on the grille and yellow brake calipers echoing the F1 team’s race-inspired livery. Under the hood, the 430bhp-V8 comes with a 4.7-liter power unit while the V12 is equipped with a 5.9-litre engine producing 565bhp. In terms of the bespoke interior, diamond-quilted seats with contrasting stitching and the RBR logo on the headrests should not go unmentioned.
