Aston Martin Vantage AMR is last hurrah for current-gen model

Painted in either white with orange graphics, black with blue, blue with red or silver with grey highlights, the AMR editions can also come in the firm's famous green and lime green accents.

The pair represent road-biased but higher-performance versions of the popular sports vehicle siblings, with special materials, colours and even a range of dedicated accessories, because matching luggage, helmets and action cameras are apparently what Aston Martin buyers want.

No matter what engine or transmission you choose, coupe and roadster variants of the AMR Vantage can be selected.

First seen at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, Aston Martin has now unveiled its latest Vantage offering - the Vantage AMR. The first auto to receive the AMR treatment is none other than Aston Martin's most successful sports vehicle (and considering how long it's been in production, it better be), the Vantage. AMR also offer a "Halo Pack" taking direct inspiration from Aston Martin's 2016 WEC race auto, donning a Stirling Green paint with Lime accents, similar to the concept models seen at Geneva.

The auto maker will be producing 100 units of the auto with a V12 engine and 200 units of the auto with a V8 engine and the vehicle takes its design inspiration from the FIA World Championship victor V8 Vantage GTE.

Good news for purists, the Vantage AMR can be had with a manual transmission-a six-speed for the V-8 and the dog-leg seven-speed for the V-12.

Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer said of the Vantage AMR: "The Vantage has been an incredible success for Aston Martin, both in V8 and V12 forms". The V12 also gets 10-spook lightweight alloys while the V8 has to make due with a regular 5-spoke design.

The interior's all done in leather (and Alcantara on the coupe) with colors chosen to match the exterior treatment.

If the loud paint jobs and graphics aren't enough of a statement, buyers can add an AMR Aero Kit - fixed rear wing, big lip spoiler and sill extensions - a titanium exhaust and forged AMR wheels.

The Vantage AMR also boasts of carbon-fibre inserts.

On sale in the fourth quarter of 2017 pricing in the United Kingdom for the V8 AMR begins at £97,995 (A$165,000).
