V8 and V12 Vantage S Red Bull Racing Editions confirmed…
The football season is about to kick off and that means we must be getting close to the Australian F1 Grand Prix in Melbourne.
The first race of the season is always welcomed by action-starved motorsport fans and this year to mark the start of the championship our friends at Aston Martin have confirmed a special edition model.
Available in either V8 or V12, the Aston Martin Vantage S Red Bull Racing Editions look set to be both keenly sought-after and possibly excellent investments too.
Aston Martin doesn’t do special edition models very often, when they do they’re usually well worth the wait.
Created in-house by Aston Martin’s Q personalisation service, the cars come complete with the signatures of Red Bull Racing drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen.

Priced from $259,995 and landing in the second quarter of the year, Aston Martin has given the Vantage S Red Bull Racing Editions a look inspired by Red Bull Racing’s distinctive race livery.
That means deep Mariana Blue paint finish is standard, Gloss Tungsten Silver or satin Mariana Blue being aavailable as options.
To compliment the paint there’s an array of carbon fibre exterior additions, as well as distinctive red infills on the grille and yellow callipers.
Completing the special-edition models, customers enjoy Red Bull Racing headrest embroidery, carbon fibre trim inlays, diamond-quilting and an alcantara steering wheel.
Aston Martin President & CEO, Dr Andy Palmer, says the cars are very special.
“Motorsport is and will always be a key part of our DNA,”
“Both the V8 and V12 Vantage S Red Bull Racing Editions bring that ethos straight to our customers.
With the 2017 F1 World Championship set to begin, 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.”
