Aston Martin Vantage F1 Edition debuts with more downforce & power


Aston Martin has revealed the Vantage F1 Edition, which as you might have guessed, is pretty close to driving the Vantage official F1 safety car. AM claims the F1 Edition to be the most track-focused production Vantage to-date and will be a core production offering, sitting at the top of the Vantage lineup.

The F1 Edition benefits from the aerodynamic and chassis enhancements made to the F1 safety car, including a full-width front splitter, front dive planes, underbody turning vanes, and the new rear wing. The rear diffuser remains unchanged. Overall, the F1 Edition is claimed to deliver 200 kg (441 lbs) more downforce than the regular Vantage at top speed. The team has done underbody modifications to increase front structural stiffness for improved steering feel and response. The rear springs are stiffer, naturally. Cast iron discs are standard, while the Coupe gets an option of carbon ceramic discs. The car rides on 21-inch wheels, wrapped with specially developed Pirelli P Zero tyres.

The cockpit features seats upholstered in a combination of Obsidian Black Leather and Phantom Grey Alcantara, with a choice of Lime Green, Obsidian Black, Wolf Grey or Spicy Red contrast stripe and stitching.


The AMG-sourced 4.0-litre V8 twin-turbo motor pumps out 394 kW (535 metric hp), which is 25 metric hp more, and 685 Nm (505 lb-ft) of torque. An 8-speed ZF automatic drives the rear wheels. The Coupe is claimed to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.6 seconds while the Roadster takes 0.1 seconds more. The top speed is claimed to be 314 km/h (195 mph) and 305 km/h (190 mph), respectively.

Retail prices for the Vantage F1 Edition start at £142,000 in the UK and €162,000 in Germany, with deliveries scheduled to begin in May 2021.
