Aston Martin Vantage AMR Unveiled, Just 300 Will Be Made

Five color schemes are also available on the Vantage AMR, each having their own matching livery.

That's because the latest iteration of the Vantage is the first road auto to emerge from a new, high-performance AMR (Aston Martin Racing) division that will bring a touch of its motorsport endeavours to the range.

But what actually makes the new Vantage special? The V12 model produces 595bhp and is available with a seven-speed manual gearbox, while the V8 gets 430bhp and a more conventional six-speed gearbox; both are also available with Aston's paddle-shift automated manual gearbox.

As a starting point for the new AMR models we get the Aston Martin Vantage AMR - perhaps Aston's sportiest model - which can be had as a V8 AMR or V12 AMR, and, we're promised, will be followed by AMR models across the AML range.

Indeed, if that isn't enough, there are a range of "AMR Accessories" that can be added too.

Georgia manhunt: Authorities identify 2 slain prison guards
Curtis Billue , 58, had been a guard since 2007 and Christopher Monica , 42, joined the department in 2009. Authorities are searching for two inmates, 43-year-old Donnie Russell Rowe and 24-year-old Ricky Dubose .

"It's a real thrill to see our first AMR model go into production", said Aston Martin's president and CEO, Dr Andy Palmer.

Launched at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, the AMR brand is created to build on the sporting prowess of the British marque's road cars by taking inspiration or direct influence from Aston Martin Racing's participation in the FIA World Endurance Championship in which the marque tasted victory last season. Stratus White with an Orange graphic; Ultramarine Black with Blue graphic; Zaffre Blue with Red graphic; and Scintilla Silver with Grey graphic. It isn't particularly subtle, but standing out is the goal here. With a combination of leather and Alcantara for the Vantage AMR Coupes and all-leather for the Vantage AMR Roadsters, each interior scheme has been carefully chosen to compliment the exterior colours.

Both V8 and V12 Vantage AMR models are available in both Coupe and Roadster body styles in selected markets, with recommended retail prices starting from £97,995 in the United Kingdom and €126,995 in Germany. Buyers can choose to option in lightweight carbon seats and carbon trim.

Inspiration for the AMR models come from Aston Martin Racing's various race cars. Available also is the AMR aero kit which adds a spoiler, splitters and canards for those who opt to have a more aggressive and personalized look. Prices will start £97,995 (US$124,924) in the United Kingdom, and deliveries will begin in Q4 this year.

Production is limited to 300 cars worldwide, 100 of which will be V12s and 200 V8s.
