Power Boosts And Special Options Define New Aston Martin Vantage AMR Twins

Meet the entry-level products of Aston Martin's brand new AMR (Aston Martin Racing) range, the Vantage V8 AMR and its even more exclusive V12 cousin.

As a starting point for the new AMR models we get the Aston Martin Vantage AMR - perhaps Aston's sportiest model - which can be had as a V8 AMR or V12 AMR, and, we're promised, will be followed by AMR models across the AML range.

All models are design to commemorate Aston's racing heritage and send the Vantage out with a bang as the new model is prepared to replace it. Both engines come as standard with a six-speed paddleshift gearbox, but a six-speed stick will be offered in the V8, and a seven-speed manual can be specced on the V12.

Prices for the new Vantage AMR will start at £97,995 in the United Kingdom and €126,995 in Europe, the auto will be made available in both Coupe and Roadster versions and it will launch in quarter four.

The pair represent road-biased but higher-performance versions of the popular sports vehicle siblings, with special materials, colours and even a range of dedicated accessories, because matching luggage, helmets and action cameras are apparently what Aston Martin buyers want. In keeping with its exterior the Halo Pack features boldly contrasting colours, including Lime Green welts and accents.

Further available upgrades include carbon fiber seats and a full carbon package consisting of a lightweight front grille, side strakes, lamp infills and mirror caps, as well as instrument surround, door tops and door grabs on the inside.

For the car's wheels - fivespoke items on the V8 auto and 10-spoke ones on the V12 - there's a selection of three different finishes. Each exterior paintjob is matched to its own interior theme, with plenty of leather and Alcantara. Available also is the AMR aero kit which adds a spoiler, splitters and canards for those who opt to have a more aggressive and personalized look.

While only coupes are shown here, the AMR Vantages will be offered as Roadsters as well.

AMR also offer a "Halo Pack" taking direct inspiration from Aston Martin's 2016 WEC race auto, donning a Stirling Green paint with Lime accents, similar to the concept models seen at Geneva. "Unmistakable in look and feel, the Vantage AMR will appeal to our most enthusiastic customers".

"Limited production numbers will undoubtedly make them extremely collectible, but they're so good to drive I'm confident we'll see many of them being enjoyed both on the road and at track events around the world".

The Vantage AMR will make its public debut during this weekend's Le Mans 24 Hours race, although the vehicle is already on sale. Deliveries are scheduled to commence in Q4 2017. The V8 Roadster starts from £107,500 and V12 Roadster £158,500.
