If the Aston Martin AM-RB 001 looks like a true Formula 1 road, the two partners have just introduced another model, more “wise”. Indeed, Aston Martin lifted the veil a few hours ago on a limited edition of its splendid Aston Martin Vantage S. The latter will soon be offered to customers through a Red Bull Racing version. The Vantage S offers a new look with new tints and a subtly reminiscent look at the Formula 1 Red Bulls. The “Q by Aston Martin” department has been responsible for its development.
We will therefore find the 4.7L V8 developing 430 hp coupled with a 6-speed manual gearbox. But also the 5.9L V12 of 563 hp backed by a Sportshift III 7-speed automatic transmission equipped with an AMShift manual mode. On the performance side, the 0 to 100 km / h will be done in 4.8s with the V8 and 3.7s with the V12.
Under the hood, you can choose the V8 or V12 from the Vantage S ranging from 436 to 573 horsepower! The icing on the cake, it is possible to have this special edition signed by the two drivers of the Red Bull team: Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen.
