The Aston Martin Vantage AMR takes inspiration from the brands racing efforts in the world endurance championship, where they tasted success last season. Four different colour schemes will be available for the Vantage AMR, including Stratus White with an Orange graphic, Ultramarine Black with Blue graphic, Zaffre Blue with Red graphic, and Scintilla Silver with Grey graphic. Finally the Halo pack as pictured takes direct inspiration from the teams championship winning GTE car, with a combination of Stirling Green paint and vivid Lime Green accents.
The AMR comes in the form of either a 595 hp V12 or 430 hp V8 engine coupled with an automated sequential manual paddle-shift transmission, or six and seven-speed manual gearboxes for both engine option.
Aston Martin President and CEO, Dr Andy Palmer, said of the Vantage AMR: "It's a real thrill to see our first AMR model go into production. The Vantage has been an incredible success for Aston Martin, both in V8 and V12 forms. As our most agile and athletic road car, and our long-time representative in the world of GT racing, it is the perfect model with which to introduce the exciting AMR range. Unmistakable in look and feel the Vantage AMR will appeal to our most enthusiastic customers. These are people who love our cars for their motorsport pedigree, and for their unmistakable dynamic and emotional qualities. 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."
