Aston Martin has added another special edition to its decade-old Vantage range: the Vantage S Red Bull Racing Edition, which will be available either with the company’s 4.7-litre V8 or 6.0-litre V12 engines.

The new editions of the Vantage have been created by Q by Aston Martin, the marque’s in-house personalisation service, to celebrate the second year of partnership between Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing.

The launch of the Vantage S Red Bull Racing Edition comes just weeks ahead of the 2017 Formula 1 World Championship, which starts with the Australian Grand Prix on 26th March.

As standard, the new limited edition will be finished in a deep Mariana Blue colour. Other choices include Tungsten Silver or a satin version of the Mariana Blue, to match the look of the Red Bull Racing F1 cars.

Externally, the Vantage S Red Bull Racing Edition features a carbon fibre finish to the front splitter, rear diffuser, side strakes and grille. The grille is finished with a red infill and the brakes sport yellow calipers, drawing on the colour scheme of the F1 team.

Inside, the special edition models get Red Bull Racing embroidery on the seat headrests, carbon fibre trim inlays and a colour-coded leather steering wheel.
