With the Formula 1 season set to begin in just over a month’s time, Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing have revealed the duo’s latest collaboration — the V8 and V12 Vantage S Red Bull Racing Editions.

Buyers get a special application of Mariana Blue paintwork, however, those seeking an extra degree of special can opt for a glossy shade of Tungsten Silver, or an even more special satin application of blue. Complementing the new colors are a race-inspired carbon fiber splitter, diffuser, grille, and side strakes. Aston offers customers the choice of either red grille infills with yellow calipers, or the inverse, yellow infills and red calipers.

The collaboration continues inside, where the Red Bull Racing logo has been stitched into the headrests, which join new carbon fiber trim inlays, and a color-matched leather steering wheel. Buyers will also be able to choose if they want Daniel Ricciardo or Max Verstappen to sign their sill and final inspection plaques.

The appearance package has been created by Aston’s in-house bespoke outfitters ‘Q by Aston Martin’ and will be available with either a 430-horsepower 4.7-liter V8 or a 565-horsepower 5.9-liter V12, starting this spring, shortly after the start of the 2017 F1 season.
