Two months ago, the premium British automaker Aston Martin gave us their new AMR line-up with a pair of rare super cars, unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show back in March. The first vehicle was a slightly updated Rapide christened as the Rapide AMR, and the other vehicle was a track-focused Vantage with a race-car copied V8 named the Vantage AMR Pro. Now the British marque will add another super car to that line-up that will be called the Vantage AMR sans the Pro part that will get a racy body with an array of carbon fiber parts.
The staff of Aston Martin will provide customers with an option to avail of the Vantage AMR with one of the following exterior two-tone schemes namely Scintilla Silver with Grey, Ultramarine Black with Blue, Stratus White with Orange and Zaffre Blue with Red. Aside from the color options mentioned, you can also opt for the "Halo Pack" that includes a combination of Stirling Green paint with bright Lime Green accents in the fashion as the WEC-winning #95 Vantage GTE of last year.
This race-car inspired set can be yours with the Union Jack-glazed AML wings badge, but no worries as there will be no additional cost for this. For the interior, there are a lot of configurations to be offered but these will specifically depend on the exterior's aesthetic. All of these models will be fitted with premium carbon fiber seats and a combination of leather and Alcantara made especially for the coupes. Meanwhile, the roadsters will flaunt an all-leather finish.
Moreover, the Halo Pack will also liven up the interior due to its Lime Green welts and accents. Andy Palmer, Aston Martin CEO, said that the Vantage has been an awesome success for the German marque in its V8 and V12 forms. He further commented that the Vantage is their most agile and athletic road car as well as their long-time rep in the GT racing world.
The British marque will only produce 300 cars, and 100 of the vehicles will be equipped with the V12 engine update that gave it a 30hp boost to an impressive 595hp, whereas the other 200 vehicles will have the V8 that can produce 430hp. Both V12 and V8 naturally aspirated engines will be paired to an automated sequential manual gearbox or perhaps a 6 to 7-speed manual.
For those customers who are seeking more customizations for the Vantage AMR, Aston Martin is glad to offer them extra novelties including a carbon fiber aerodynamic body kit for the coupe together with forged aluminium wheels and titanium exhaust shaving that is lighter by 31 lbs (14kg) compared to the Vantage V12's stock exhaust.
Aston Martin Vantage AMR will only be offered in select countries, and it will bear the price tag of £97,995 in UK and €126,995 in Germany. Deliveries of the sports car will start in the 4th quarter of this year. Don’t forget to check out the Vantage AMR this weekend at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
