Aston Martin rolls out Vantage-based AMR special editions

British carmaker Aston Martin has revealed the Vantage AMR, a race-inspired limited-run swansong model for its Vantage sports vehicle. Aston Martin is planning to launch a number of AMR-branded models in the future.

The Aston Martin Vantage AMR is limited to just 300 units worldwide.

The Vantage is expected to be replaced by an all-new model next year, says Autocar, as a development mule for the sports auto has been spotted testing at Germany's 12.9-mile Nurburgring circuit. Inside, the Vantage AMR gets a high-quality makeover with extensive use of leather, Alcantara and carbon fibre. Along with its more powerful engine options, the Vantage AMR gets a unique look and race-inspired goodies.

Under the hood is a 430bhp V8 or a 595bhp V12 engine with either automatic or manual gearbox. Aston Martin will produce 200 V8 models and 100 V12 models.

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. Customers will also be able to select from several accessories including a race helmet, a performance data recorder and a luggage set. The Halo Pack substitutes one of the four two-tone colour schemes for a Stirling Green paint job, complemented by Lime Green accents. Oh goody. And if you're struggling to ever tell them apart, the V8 has five-spoke wheels and the V12 10-spoke.

Pyongyang is expected to demand the return of all four fishermen by accusing Seoul of enticing them to defect to the South . The missiles North Korea lobbed into the East Sea on Thursday morning are presumed to be land-to-ship cruise missiles.

For those wanting to make either of these models a little more extreme, Aston Martin will also offer a variety of optional styling packages, the most distinct being the "Aero Pack" which offers up a carbon rear wing, redesigned sills, dive planes and an aggressive splitter on the front bumper and a distinct mesh grill.

"It's a real thrill to see our first AMR model go into production".

Do you like the look of the new Vantage AMR editions? Buyers can also opt for either the Coupe or Roadster body styles. These are people who love our cars for their motorsport pedigree, and for their unmistakable dynamic and emotional qualities. Deliveries are scheduled to commence in Q4 2017.

The Vantage AMR will make its public debut during this weekend's Le Mans 24 Hours race, although the vehicle is already on sale. The V8 Roadster starts from £107,500 and V12 Roadster £158,500.
