Aston Martin unleashes its Vantage AMR

Aston Martin Vantage AMR more money more motorsport vibes

Inside and the interior will be vey familiar to any Aston Martin Vantage owner with all the switchgear being exactly the same.

What we've been waiting for since the Geneva Motor Show is officially here.

Other options include a carbonfibre front grille, side strakes, light in-fills and mirror caps, as well as carbonfibre seats.

Both cars come with either the six-speed Speedshift automated manual or a six- (V8) or seven-speed (V12) manual. If you throw those on your auto, you might as well check the box for the forged wheels and the AMR titanium exhaust, which saves 30 lbs. over the standard V12 Vantage system while "sounding sensational" and improving throttle response. To go a step further, you can also choose various parts from the new AMR accessories range - including a full aero kit, forged aluminium wheels and lightweight titanium exhaust. An additional "Halo Pack" is also available and is seen here, adding Lime Green accents to a Stirling Green base. A Union Jack-enameled badge is a no-cost option. Front splitter and dive planes, plus side sills and a fixed rear spoiler. Take a look at the white vehicle here for an idea of how that will look; the Aero Kit is the most obvious change, but there are also a set of forged aluminium wheels and a titanium exhaust that saves 14kg from standard. That makes it especially sad that none of the 200 V8 models, nor the 100 V12s, will be allocated for the United States market.

But the AMG partnership certainly gives you an idea of what Aston Martin has planned for its AMR-badged cars, offering road-going models with motorsport-inspired makeovers, some with more power, some not.

"The Vantage has been an incredible success for Aston Martin, both in V8 and V12 forms", he says. "Unmistakable in look and feel, the Vantage AMR will appeal to our most enthusiastic customers". March may seem a while ago now but, amongst the Alpine A110, Ferrari 812 and McLaren 720S, Aston Martin also launched its 'AMR' range of cars. Prices will start £97,995 (US$124,924) in the United Kingdom, and deliveries will begin in Q4 this year.

"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".
