Aston has bestowed the particular Vantage with some of the F1 safety car’s modifications to get a £142, 000 special edition
For the first time within 26 years, F1 gets a non-Mercedes safety vehicle. Aston Martin would be to share safety and healthcare car duties with the German born company, and that’s resulted in the creation of a specific Vantage.
The Vantage F1 protection car continues to be modified with input through Aston Martin boss Tobias Moers himself, and some of these tweaks are now available to clients. But not the big light pub – sorry.
The Vantage F1 Model does, however , get the exact same aero package, consisting of a brand new rear wing, a large front splitter with jump planes and under-body vanes. These work together to increase the particular downforce by 200kg in the Vantage’s top speed of 195mph (190mph in the Roadster).
Taking advantage of the reduced lift is really a tweaked 4. 0-litre Mercedes-AMG twin-turbo V8, boosted simply by 25bhp to give a new complete of 528bhp. It forces the rear wheels via a fettled eight-speed automatic gearbox that gives reduced shift times.
Headlining the framework changes is a set of 21-inch wheels shod in specially-developed Pirelli P Zero tires. There are also underbody changes that will increase the stiffness of the Vantage’s front structure, new impediment internals and an increased back spring rates.
You can have this in the same Aston Matn Racing Green hue useful for both the safety car as well as the company’s new F1 vehicle, with Jet Black plus Lunar White also around the colour palette. Inside you will find Obsidian Black Leather-based and Phantom Grey Alcantara liberally spread around the log cabin.
