Aston Martin’s bespoke Q brand has launched its latest creations – two special edition models based on the Vantage S which cement the brand’s partnership with the Red Bull Racing team. Launched just in time for the 2017 Formula 1 season next month, the special editions offer up unique design features inspired by Red Bull’s racing cars.

The Vantage S Red Bull Racing edition is available with a choice of V8 or V12 engines, but both models are styled identically. There’s a choice of three paint schemes – the deep Mariana Blue featured in these photos, plus Tungsten Silver or a satin Mariana Blue.
That’s complimented by red infills on the grille, plus yellow brake calipers. The exterior styling is finished off with carbon fibre trim on the front splitter, rear diffuser, grille and side strakes.
Inside, the bespoke style continues with diamond-quilted seats, carbon fibre trim and a Red Bull Racing emblem embroidered on the head restraints.
For an extra connection to the race team, customers can specify their sill plates to be signed by either Daniel Ricciardo or Max Verstappen – the ultimate racing driver’s autograph!
Aston Martin President & CEO, Dr. Andy Palmer said, “Motorsport is and will always be a key part of Aston Martin’s DNA and both the V8 and V12 Vantage S Red Bull Racing Editions bring that ethos straight to our customers. With the 2017 Formula One championship set to begin soon, 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”.
Deliveries of these cars begin in the second quarter of 2017, and order books are open now.
