New Aston Martin V8 and V12 Vantage S Red Bull Racing Editions are F1-inspired

It seems that AM-RB 001 hypercar is not the only vehicle project that Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing has gone into. This time, don’t expect something as outlandish as the AM-RB 001 hypercar, but of course, the new project should still leave us mesmerized.

In order to celebrate the so-called “Innovation Partnership” between Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing, the two companies are creating special versions of the V8 Vantage S and the V12 Vantage S. These special versions – called the V8 Vantage S Red Bull Racing Edition and the V12 Vantage S Red Bull Racing Edition – are all filled with Formula One flavors as per Red Bull Racing manners.

Taking charge of transforming the V8 and V12 Vantage S into Red Bull Racing Editions is the carmaker’s in-house personalization service -- Q by Aston Martin. Aston Martin’s bespoke division took inspiration from the unique livery of the Red Bull Racing team to create Vantage S special versions that would greatly appeal to “the most devoted Formula 1 enthusiast.”

Aston Martin working on an extreme V12 Vantage S GT3

Aston Martin is currently working on the extreme V12 Vantage S GT3 and the first test mule was spotted on the Nurburgring. OF course, this is not something new as the British carmaker already announced its intentions to build a more extreme version of the V12 Vantage S.

Just like any other vehicle wearing the GT3 designation, the new Aston Martin will be 100 kg lighter than the standard version and as expected, the vehicle will not offer any air conditioning, will come with lighter seats and its interior will be stripped down.

In addition, the V12 Vantage S GT3 will feature carbon fiber body panels as well as lighter magnesium wheels. When it comes to design, the vehicle will get enlarged front and rear fenders as well as a more aggressive body kit.

2015 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster drops its top, promises intense excitement

Aston Martin officially introduced today the V12 Vantage S Roadster, a convertible version of the V12 Vantage S Coupe that made its debut back in 2013. As expected, the new vehicle is powered by the AM28 6.0-liter V12 engine that generates 573 hp and 620 Nm of torque available at 5,750 rpm.

With these numbers, the V12 Vantage S Roadster accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds, while top speed is 201 mph or 323 km/h. The engine is bolted to the Sportshift III 7-speed transmission featuring paddle shifter that replaces the old six-speed manual gearbox found in the previous V12 Vantage Roadster.

According to Aston Martin, the new gearbox is 20 kg lighter than its forebear. Regarding the design, there is nothing new comparing it with the coupe versions. We find the well-known aluminum vanes in the Aston Martin grille, with a carbon fiber arrangement that also includes the sporty black or titanium silver mesh.

Aston Martin V12 Vantage S priced at $184,995 in the United States

Here comes Aston Martin’s fastest accelerating production car to date next to the limited edition One-77 hypercar -- new V12 Vantage S. The extreme sports car could accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds and from zero to 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds. The new V12 Vantage S is not only Aston Martin’s fastest accelerating production car, but is also the most potent Vantage in the brand’s 100-year history. The main reason for this performance is the AM28 6.0-litre V12 engine that provides 573 PS for the V12 Vantage S.

Featuring the latest generation engine management, it allows the V12 Vantage S to achieve a top speed of 205 mph, making it the brand’s fastest sports car, with the exemption of the One-77. Complementing this dynamic power is 620 Nm of torque available at 5,750 rpm, with 510 Nm of torque is available at low revolution. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels via the new Sportshift III AMT (automated manual transmission).

The V12 Vantage S is endowed with technology that enables a driver to accurately tune its ride and handling. Through its three-stage adaptive damping -- ‘Normal’, ‘Sport’ and ‘Track’ -- a driver can precisely suit the sports car’s dynamic character and make use of its full potential. Complementing this extended adaptive damping system is a ‘Sport’ mode that could controlled via a button on the centre console.

Although the official numbers were not released, the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S is expected to hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in less than four seconds.

Top speed is limited at 205 mph or 330 km/h. The engine uses a race-derived Sportshift III hydraulically actuated automated manual transmission that provides motorsport-style paddle shift changes.

Moreover, the new transmission is also lighter than the six-speed manual gearbox, saving 55 lb. The V12 Vantage S also features a three-stage adaptive damping, a first for the Vantage family, which allows the driver to tailor the car’s dynamic character.

This engine is bolted to a six-speed manual gearbox and it can hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 4.5 seconds and has a top speed of 190 mph or 305 km/h. Although the vehicle shares much of the technical and specification features of the V12 Vantage Coupe, some of the elements were redesigned on order to make the roadster unique.

As a result, the V12 Vantage Roadster features a redesigned rear boot lid and lower front air intake as well as a number of unique chassis revisions. Such revisions include a modified rear damper set-up, front and rear damper valve tuning and a new rear spring design.

True to the fact, the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster is powered by a 565 bhp (573 PS) AM28 6.0-liter V12 engine, which features state-of-the-art Bosch engine management.

Aston Martin Racing has started tests for its latest V12 Vantage GT3 this week at Brands Hatch in Kent. It covered nearly 1,000 kilometers in only two days. A great part of the mileage was carried out by factory driver Darren Turner, who said that the vehicle "ran like clockwork" throughout the two-day test and "really good mileage" has been managed already.

He added that the feeling of the V12 Vantage GT3 is "a massive step forward" over the DBRS9. He explained that being based on the smaller Vantage, it is "more responsive and feels more nimble," raising the driver’s confidence to extract all the performance from the V12 engine while also being light on its tires. He further commented that the vehicle "isn’t too physical to drive" and that he didn't even "break into a sweat during the test!"

Turner added that with the clean styling and the "amazing sounding" V12, the unit is "closer to the core values" of Aston Martin’s road vehicles compared to any of the racing cars that the company have ever built. He is positive that the unit will be "a favourite among motorsport fans in no time at all.”
