Swansong: Aston Martin's Vantage AMR


First seen at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, Aston Martin has now unveiled its latest Vantage offering - the Vantage AMR.

This new Aston Martin Vantage AMR celebrate the brand's success in GT4, GT3 and GTE racing, and is available with the existing 430bhp V8 or 595bhp V12 engines with either automatic or manual gearboxes.

Aston Martin is preparing to bid farewell to its long-serving Vantage sports vehicle with a pair of models inspired by its racing success at Le Mans and beyond. Power goes to the rear wheels through a choice of automatic or manual transmissions, which could make the AMR the last series production auto offered with a manual transmission and naturally aspirated twelve cylinder engine. This link is reflected directly via the various colors on offer, which in the case of the Vantage AMR includes Stratus White with an Orange graphic; Ultramarine Black with Blue graphic; Zaffre Blue with Red graphic; and Scintilla Silver with Gray graphic. The Vantage name is said to be synonymous with extreme Aston Martin models since the 1950's.

In addition, Aston Martin's range of AMR accessories will allow buyers to personalise their auto in even more detail. You can spec carbon fibre parts throughout, from the front grille, side strakes, lamp infills and mirror caps right through to the door pulls inside. Very motorsport. Each interior colour scheme is matched to the exterior you choose, with all leather for the drop-top and then some additional Alcantara for the coupe. The optional Halo Pack bears the grey-green and lime green colors of the models we've seen so far, with enamel Union Jack emblems from last year's championship-winning GTE racer as a no-cost option. There's an array of carbon-fiber options inside and out, three finishes available for the wheels (five spokes for the V8 and ten for the 12), an available titanium exhaust system, and a whole mess of other options.

"As our most agile and athletic road auto, and our long-time representative in the world of GT racing, it is the ideal model with which to introduce the exciting AMR range".

V8 available in UK, EU, Asia Pacific and China / V12 available in UK, EU, Asia Pacific, China and Middle East. Deliveries are scheduled to commence in Q4 2017.
