The photos were recently published by AutoCar that showed the car testing on a track while it was heavily camouflaged. Even through the camouflage, it could be spotted that the car has taken a number of features from that of its larger sibling. The car has a shorter tail which specifically classified it as a Vantage.
The earlier pictures of the car show it to have a rear roll cage and a bucket seat. However it can be seen that both of these were installed only because of the development and testing purpose.
Limited to just 200 units globally, with 17 allocated to Australia, each Vantage RBR sports the signature of either Verstappen or Ricciardo on the sill plates and under-bonnet plaque to celebrate the two brands’ ‘innovation partnership’ which has led to Red Bull Racing’s aero wizard, Adrian Newey, collaborating with Aston Martin on its new Valkyrie hypercar.
The interior is matched accordingly, with carbon fibre trimmings, Red Bull Racing embroidery for the seat headrests, and a full leather steering wheel complete with the racing-inspired 12 o’clock stripe. There’s also diamond-quilted leather upholstery, special sill plates, and red highlights.
Aston Martin says buyers can also select a Tungsten Silver or a gloss Marina Blue colour if they prefer. Prices start at $259,995 drive-away for the V8 Vantage S Red Bull, and from $422,770 for the V12 Vantage S Red Bull (excludes on-roads).
