Aston Martin Racing introduced the limited edition AMR Vantage in 2019, swapping the Vantage's 8-speed auto for a driver focused 7-speed manual box.
Appealing to the more track driven customers, the manual box features a racing style dog-leg gearshift. However, despite the racing pretentions, the AMR is actually slower than the standard Vantage due to the decrease in torque. The power output of 503 bhp remains the same, as does the limited 195mph top speed.
Interior remains pretty much as standard, but the exterior is available is a series of selected special designs, cumulating in a special 1960s Le Mans tribure livery.
The £150k AMR is a hefty £30k more expensive than the standard Vantage. Seems a lot to pay for a cut-down version, albeit limited edition. A boost in power may have swung the balance in its favour.
