Fastest, most focused Vantage celebrates Aston’s return to Formula One

Aston Martin has a long and successful competition history, chiefly in endurance racing. But the company was a Formula One entrant back in 1959 and 1960 and is now back on the F1 Grid with the team formerly known as Racing Point. Proudly heading that grid will be a more recognisable road-going Aston Martin; the Vantage, official Safety Car of F1. To celebrate that link Aston Martin has created the new Vantage F1 Edition, giving owners the chance to experience the Safety Car’s track-focused performance and unique style for themselves.

Vantage Range

Design

The Vantage F1 Edition is offered in both Coupé and Roadster versions. Model-specific aero addenda include a larger front splitter, dive planes, underfloor aero, and large rear wing. Also included are 21-inch wheels, a dark-vaned grille, carbon fibre trim and a carbon fibre roof (Coupé only). It’s offered in the same shade of Aston Martin Racing Green as the F1 team cars, though Jet Black and Lunar White are alternative options. All three colours can be chosen in gloss or satin finish, and all feature matt grey racing graphics. Inside, the F1 Edition’s striking leather and Alcantara upholstery has contrast stripes and stitching in a choice of Lime Green, Obsidian Black, Wolf Grey or Spicy Red.

Performance

Many of the Vantage F1 Edition’s performance modifications are chassis and aero based, but the Vantage’s 4.0 litre twin turbo V8 also has a maximum power output of 535PS, compared with the standard model’s 510PS. Peak torque is the same at 685Nm but covers a broader rev range, from 2000-5000rpm. 0-62mph takes 3.6 seconds and top speed is 195mph (handy when you have Lewis Hamilton champing at the bit behind you). The transmission is only available as an eight-speed auto but shift times have been cut to increase the precision and response of the drivetrain in track conditions.

Technology

With an aero package developing 200kg of downforce at top speed, the Vantage F1 Edition feels balanced and planted even on the faster tracks. Aston Martin were determined that the new model’s track capabilities shouldn’t compromise on-road behaviour, so ruled out the fitment of aggressive, track-optimised tyres. But the F1 Edition does have a stiffer structure as well as reworked dampers to give better body control at extreme track loads. Spring rates and steering have also been tweaked for the model’s intended track use.

Safety

As with the standard Vantage, the F1 Edition’s drive systems include Dynamic Stability Control, with Dynamic Torque Vectoring linked to an Electronic Differential (e-Diff). Other Vantage safety features include Blind Spot Monitoring and Emergency Brake Assist.

Aston Martin’s boss Tobias Moers set his team a demanding brief for the Vantage F1 Edition: “It had to be a true athlete: more powerful; more agile; more immediate and more exciting to drive.” He can consider those boxes ticked. And though the F1 Edition is primarily designed for owners who will want to explore its capabilities on track, it’s still perfectly suited to roadgoing drives too. A stunning head turner with plenty of extra go to match the show.
