Aston Martin Vantage Heritage Racing Edition Designs and Features
To illustrate the history of the Aston Martin brand, engineers created six Aston Martin Vantage Heritage Racing Editions that each pay tribute to a famous race car in the brand’s history – The Record Breaker, The Italian Progettista, The David Brown Era, The Group C Monster, The Le Mans Winner and The Next Generation. With only 60 Vantage Heritage Racing Editions set to be manufactured, these Aston Martin Vantage entries are truly one of a kind.
The Record Breaker –
The Record Breaker is inspired by the Razor Blade, a record-setting entry in the 1500cc light car class at Brooklands in 1923. To develop this design, Q by Aston Martin has color matched the green exterior color on the original and added silver exterior accents.
The Italian Progettista –
A third-place finisher at 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1935 and a top finisher in the RAC Tourist Trophy Race, the iconic Aston Martin Ulster served as inspiration for The Italian Progettista Heritage Racing Edition. The Italian Progettista features the original red bodywork and color scheme with hand-painted script on the hood.
The David Brown Era –
The next entry in the Aston Martin Vantage Heritage Racing Edition portfolio is The David Brown Era Vantage, which pays tribute to the Aston Martin DB3S with a yellow and green livery that is instantly recognizable when you hit the track.
The Group C Monster –
A successor to the Nimrod, the Aston Martin AMR1 was developed in 1989 to compete in the Group C Racing Series and featured a kevlar and carbon-fiber chassis. The Group C Monster special edition takes inspiration from the Aston Martin AMR1 with white, blue and red exterior colors.
The Le Mans Winner –
Dedicated to the Aston Martin DBR9 that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2007 and 2008, The Le Mans Winner Vantage Heritage Racing Edition features the iconic Gulf livery with blue and orange that will make you stand out from the crowd.
The Next Generation –
The Next Generation special edition is a fresh take on the modern Aston Martin Vantage GTE that is a winner on the track. This special edition will feature Lime Essence and Stirling Green colors to mimic the current Aston Martin entry in the FIA World Endurance Championship.
