The limited run of 300 cars, 200 V8 models and 100 V12s, has started at Aston Martin’s Gaydon, England factory.
Under the bonnet the Vantage AMR packs in either a 321kW 4.7-litre V8 or 444kW 6.0-litre V12 engines, powering the rear wheels through a choice of either an automated manual transmission, or for those that prefer the experience of a three-pedal drive, a proper six-speed manual for the V8 or seven-speed manual for the V12 - potentially the last V12-manual combo available.
Aston Martin offers the car in a choice of five bold colour schemes with colour-matched interior and exterior schemes including the stirling green with lime accents used for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, where the Vantage is making its final appearance as a fully-fledged factory race car.
Other touches include an optional high-downforce aero kit, extensive carbon fibre accoutrements, forged aluminium wheels and a raucous titanium exhaust.
Aston Martin’s CEO Andy Palmer credited the Vantage as being the ideal car with which to launch the AMR line which was first announced earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show.
"The Vantage has been an incredible success for Aston Martin, both in V8 and V12 forms," Mr Palmer said.
"As our most agile and athletic road car, and our long-time representative in the world of GT racing, it is the perfect model with which to introduce the exciting AMR range.”
