If you are in the market for a unique $162,000 sports car, then perhaps the Aston Martin Vantage F1 Edition will strike your fancy. The Vantage is already renowned for delivering a truly thrilling driving experience, and they have unleashed the F1 Edition to give even greater exhilaration, with 25 more horsepower to its 4.0-litre V8 engine, a new aerodynamic body kit, and dynamic tuning. While the top speed and 0-60 times will remain the same as other Vantages, the new aero kit brings performance enhancements that can be felt from the driver’s seat, delivering positive front and rear down force, totalling 200kg more down force than Vantage at top speed.
CEO of Aston Martin, Tobias Moers, described the F1 Edition as, “A Vantage to appeal to the most discerning drivers and a new model that marks an exciting moment in Aston Martin’s history—the return to Formula 1. Performance is at the heart of every Aston Martin, but when it wears an F1® badge it has to be a truly exceptional car.”
