Aston Martin adds Red Bull Racing touches to V8 V12 Vantage You can even have the car signed by Daniel Ricciardo or Max Verstappen

Aston Martin has come up with a couple of special editions to celebrate the commencement of the 2017 Formula 1 season.

The latest limited edition Aston Martin Vantage to break cover shows that the company is quite literally bullish about the future.

Those expecting F1 derived performance maybe slightly disappointed though. As we know, Red Bull Racing is helping Aston build an out-of-this-world hypercar known as the AM RB-001.

From the outside, these Red Bull Racing Editions will feature a standard deep Marina Blue color, just like the Red Bull Ragin livery.

The V8's 430hp and 490Nm of torque remain untpuched whilst the V12's 568hp and 630Nm of torque should be enough to satisfy the power-hungry crowd.

As with many special edition Aston Martins of years past, the Red Bull Racing Editions-customized by the carmaker's Q division-are largely paint-and-trim specials benefit of mechanical changes.

In Brussels, Pence tries soothing anxious leaders with pro-EU message
On Monday, Pence voiced a different message to the European Union as he pledged to support and cooperate with the global body. During the presser, Pence again repeated the U.S.' commitment to global institutions.

Don't think, however, that these are vehicles carrying race auto technology for the road; the Red Bull Editions are less involved than that.

"With the FIA Formula 1 championship set to begin soon, I hope that the purchase of these models will bring the racing season that little bit closer for those lucky few customers who can't wait for it to begin". You can even have your inspection plate signed by Red Bull's F1 drivers Daniel Ricciardo or Max Verstappen. The V8 Vantage S has a the 4.7-liter V-8 rated at 430 horsepower and 361 pound-feet of torque, while the V12 Vantage S uses a 5.9-liter V-12 that cranks out 565 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of twist. A race-inspired carbon fibre splitter, diffuser, grille with red infills, and side strakes, are also included, as are yellow callipers.

Two colours will be offered: Mariana Blue and Tungsten Silver. Brightening things up a bit are the red accents on the grille and the yellow-painted calipers.

The cars are available to order now from Aston Martin dealers, with deliveries from the second quarter of 2017.

The interior has also been spruced up, with more carbon fiber and Red Bull Racing logos embroidered straight into the headrests.
