2018 Aston Martin Vantage AMR unveiled

The new Aston Martin Vantage AMR is said to be inspired by the V8 Vantage GTE race car, which won the Endurance Trophy in the 2016 FIA World Endurance Championship, and will soon go into limited production.

Sitting beneath the extensively modified Vantage AMR Pro, the Vantage AMR will be offered with either a V8 or V12, and in both coupe and convertible body styles.

The V8 Vantage AMR features the same 321kW/490Nm 4.7-litre V8 used in the V8 Vantage S. The V12 variant boasts a more powerful version of the 6.0-litre 12-cylinder engine, with 444kW of power for European markets, and 433kW elsewhere.

Both engines can be fitted with an automated sequential transmission, or a six-speed manual in the V8 model and a seven-speed manual in the V12 car.

Externally, the Vantage AMR is differentiated by colours schemes that are hard to miss, including white with orange graphics, black with blue graphics, blue with red graphics, silver with grey graphics, and green with lime green graphics.

Among the options available for the Vantage AMR include carbon-fibre seats, Union Jack-themed badges, different alloy wheel finishes, forged aluminium wheels, and a titanium exhaust.

Also available is a racing inspired aero kit featuring carbon-fibre side sills, front splitter, dive planes, and a fixed rear spoiler.

Only 300 Vantage AMR models will be made, with production split 100 for the V12 and 200 for the V8. Deliveries begin in the final quarter of 2017.
