The Aston Martin Vantage AMR Pro Is The Ideal Way To Say Goodbye

Review

The current Vantage takes its final glorious bow.

The current Aston Martin Vantage will soon no longer be current. Its successor is just around the corner but Aston Martin feels it owes a huge bit of gratitude to its so-called entry-level car. As part of the overall goodbye package, Aston Martin has built the Vantage AMR and the AMR Pro. The former is built in limited numbers for both the V8 and V12, but it’s the AMR Pro that’s very special. Carfection got some wheel time with the Vantage AMR Pro, a track-only model named for the company’s racing team.

In fact, the Vantage AMR Pro’s aerodynamics and bodywork come straight from Aston Martin’s Le Man-winning Vantage GTE. The naturally aspirated 4.7-liter V8 is from the GT4 race car. In a nutshell, it’s a track-only race car wearing a set of street-legal Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.

Is it possible to make it road legal somehow? Perhaps, but why would you want to? All of the fun to be had is on the track. Limited to a mere seven examples at a cost of 950,000 GBP (about $1.25 million) plus taxes, owners will never get enough of this thing even once the new Vantage arrives. After all, it won’t have that NA V8 and various other trace analog old school elements. No doubt it’ll be brilliant, the Vantage AMR Pro is in a different league entirely. There’s no better way than to say goodbye to the outgoing Vantage.
