Aston Martin Vantage Overview
If you have been following the 2021 Formula One season, the Aston Martin name is now back in Gran Prix racing after a 60 year absence to the sport, with four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel at the helm of the control. Also making its debut is the new FIA official safety car, the Aston Martin Vantage dressed in the iconic British racing green, joining alongside the red Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R sharing safety car duties and appearances.
The Aston Martin Vantage or sometimes referred to as the baby Aston, is the smallest Aston Martin model in the British Marque’s lineup (apart from the Aston Martin Cygnet). Based on the same bonded aluminium structure that also underpins the Aston Martin DB11, the second generation two-door coupé’s design draws inspiration from the bespoke purpose-built Aston Martin DB10 developed specifically for the James Bond film, Spectre.
Powered by a 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8 engine from Mercedes-AMG, the sports coupé hailed from Gaydon, UK is priced from RM 1.6 million (without options) and rivals competition in the likes of the Porsche 911, Mercedes AMG GT and the Lexus LC500.
