Aston Martin Vantage 'AMR' launched

Aston Martin Vantage 'AMR' launched

Aston Martin will launch a new range of cars under its newly-formed AMR banner.

Harnessing a little of the marketability of Aston Martin's considerable success in global GT racing, CEO Andy Palmer confirmed that every model in the Aston range would be made available as a factory-tuned AMR version.

Unlike nearly all high-powered sportscar makers who are going auto-only to handle ever-increasing outputs, Aston is sticking to its traditional roots and offering all Vantage AMRs with a choice of auto or manual transmissions - six-speed for the V8 or a seven-cog for the V12. Next level up is the AMR Pro series, of more extensively modified cars made to order from Aston Martin's Q personalisation department. Take a look at the white auto 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.

Each of the exterior schemes is matched to a different interior scheme and there are also various carbon fiber add-ons and wheel designs to further enhance the look. (Aston Martin is competing in the GTE class with a Vantage-based race vehicle.) Deliveries are scheduled to commence in late 2017 and customers will be able to choose from either of the Vantage's coupe or convertible body styles.

The first of Aston Martin's AMR models to enter production is the Vantage AMR.

The Vantage shown off on Aston's stand at the 2017 Geneva motor show was an AMR Pro version. The trim is leather and Alcantara, while carbon fibre seats are available as optional extras. The Vantage has been an incredible success for Aston Martin, both in V8 and V12 forms. "Unmistakable in look and feel, the Vantage AMR will appeal to our most enthusiastic customers". The Vantage name is said to be synonymous with extreme Aston Martin models since the 1950's. "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".

Coupe and Roadster body styles are available with recommended retail prices starting from £97,995 in the UK. First deliveries will take place in the final quarter of 2017.

595bhp in United Kingdom and European Union and 580bhp in Asia Pacific, Chinese and Middle East Markets.
