One that celebrates the marques go back to Formula 1® for the primary time in over 60 years and establishes the Vantage as a real sports activities automobile. It is likewise the primary middle version to advantage from direct enter from Aston Martin's currently appointed Chief Executive Officer, Tobias Moers.

A middle manufacturing offering, the brand new Aston Martin Vantage F1® Edition sits on the pinnacle of the Vantage version line. Motivated through an thrilling go back to Formula 1® and as a right away end result of the engineering that went into the improvement of the Vantage as an Official Safety Car of Formula 1®, which makes its debut on the Formula 1® Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix 2021 this week, the Vantage F1® Edition is the last expression of overall performance and dynamism; it's miles the quickest and maximum centered of the already wearing Vantage .

Not handiest is it the maximum powerful, however the Aston Martin Vantage F1® Edition advantages from precise and sizable chassis and aerodynamic enhancements evolved through Aston Martin's highly skilled engineering group. While the posh brand's Aston Martin Cognizant Formula OneTM group turned into busy making ready a go back to the grid, the engineering group in the back of the notorious street vehicles have been too, growing the last Aston Martin Vantage which can take at the function of an Official Safety Car of Formula 1®. Set to paintings through Chief Executive Officer, Tobias Moers, the venture turned into to broaden sizable overall performance improvements, pushed through progressed lap time overall performance if you want to efficiently perform its function at the F1® tune, however with out compromising its on-street capabilities. Notably, it might achieve this with out the fitment of aggressively tune-optimised tyres. Following the achievement of those improvements, Moers informed the combination of those into the manufacturing automobile, in the long run growing the brand new Vantage F1® Edition. The maximum wearing Vantage withinside the manufacturing variety and in essence, a reproduction of the Vantage Official Safety Car of Formula 1®. An thrilling proposition for Aston Martin customers.

The engineering group focused intelligent, incremental enhancements throughout more than one regions of the Aston Martin Vantage F1® Edition's auto-handiest powertrain, chassis and aerodynamics to deliver out greater character, boom tactility and make bigger its outright capabilities.Starting with the 4.0-litre twin-rapid V8 engine, strength is up through 25PS to a brand new most of 535PS. Peak torque stays unchanged at 685Nm, however that top is continued for longer to similarly boom tractability and in-equipment urgency. This relentless, muscular overall performance has been similarly more suitable through paintings to the 8-pace computerized transmission, with an optimised torque reduce at some stage in upshifts that reduces shift instances and will increase the sensation of directness and precision. This torque control additionally complements the driving force's feel of manage and connection at some stage in downshifts particularly below heavy braking and lets in for finer manage while the driving force is balancing the auto at its restrict of traction. While great in all occasions and conditions, those enhancements are specifically useful while riding on tune.Moving to the chassis, the group's attention focused at the suspension and guidance, with similarly distinct underbody adjustments to boom the front structural stiffness for a similarly development in guidance experience and reaction. Reworked damper internals have elevated the dampers' powerful pressure variety. This boom in bandwidth brings a great development in vertical frame manage - each via excessive pace compressions and over crests - with none deterioration in low-pace compliance.

To praise adjustments to the dampers, the chassis additionally advantages from elevated rear spring price and lateral stiffness to assist sharpen flip-in, boom traction (specifically over bumps) and make certain the rear-stop is tuned to praise the the front-stop's price of reaction. Further enhancements to reaction and - crucially - to what the driving force feels were made to the guidance system, permitting comments from the street to be transmitted greater clearly, which in flip facilitates construct an in depth feel of to be had grip.

With the chassis hardware optimised, interest became to the wheels and tyres, growing from 20" at the everyday Vantage to 21" as trendy for the Vantage F1® Edition. Developed particularly for the F1® Edition with Pirelli, it's miles the primary time Vantage has been outfitted with 21" tyres. Much just like the different dynamic adjustments, the transfer to a decrease profile tyre offers extra comments to the driving force to make certain revolutionary on-restrict coping with to offer most self belief in even the maximum excessive tune riding scenarios.Completing the Vantage F1® Edition's overall performance improvements is a complete aero kit, bringing enhancements that may be felt from the driving force's seat and measured in opposition to the clock. Designed to supply fantastic the front and rear downforce, totaling 200kg greater downforce than Vantage at pinnacle pace - in addition to optimising the general stability of the auto, the aerodynamic adjustments contain a full-width the front splitter, the front dive planes, underbody turning vanes, and - maximum obviously - the brand new rear wing. The rear diffuser stays unchanged however remains a middle characteristic withinside the shipping of the aerodynamic overall performance running in tandem with the brand new aerodynamic functions

The Aston Martin Vantage F1® Edition expresses its intensified overall performance with limited, but unique shade palettes and trim alternatives, together with one which celebrates Aston Martin's go back to Formula 1® with an Aston Martin Racing Green shade scheme, mimicking that of the Aston Martin Cognizant Formula OneTM Team automobile, in addition to the Official Safety Car of Formula 1®.

Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer, Tobias Moers said: "Performance is on the coronary heart of each Aston Martin, however while it wears an F1® badge it must be a simply remarkable automobile. Vantage turned into already the maximum centered sports activities automobile in our variety however withinside the improvement of our Official Safety Car of Formula 1®, it needed to be a real athlete: greater powerful; greater agile; greater on the spot and greater thrilling to drive. And - of course - faster and greater succesful in a race-tune environment. I set the engineering group a difficult target, as I turned into insistent that profits in overall performance got here thru true enhancements withinside the automobile's dynamics, and now no longer through becoming tune-optimised tyres. The outcomes talk for themselves. A Vantage to attraction to the maximum discerning drivers and a brand new version that marks an thrilling second in Aston Martin's history".

The new Aston Martin Vantage F1® Edition is on sale with a encouraged retail charge from £142,000 withinside the UK and €162,000 in Germany with deliveries scheduled to start in May 2021.
