2021 Aston Martin Vantage F1 Edition Unveiled And Price Starts At INR 1.40 Crore
The 2021 Aston Martin Vantage F1 Edition has been launched by British supercar manufacturer Aston Martin based on Formula 1 official safety car of 2021. But don’t be fooled by the safety car lights or gadgets, really a bummer, for the Vantage F1 version. Instead, it is the most track-oriented Vantage development ever.
Aston Martin has used the same technique as his official safety car, but without compromising in road use, to increase lap times that the standard Vantage will set.
The Aston boxes also improved the power level from 25 PS to 535 PS (peak torque remains unchanged at 685 Nm) with the start of the 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 engine, and the 8-speed automatic transmission has been reworked in order to shorten shift times. In order to enhance the steering feel and reaction, the adjustment was done to the frame under the body to increase front structural rigidity. In order to improve vertical body control, the engineers also reworked the internal damper, while the rear boost rate also was improved.
The best change to a motorcycle, though, is to give it some top-speed wheels and pneumatics. The Aston Martin F1 edition 2021 is equipped with21″ wheels and with even lower profile pneumatic pneumatics specially designed for the Pirelli version. Any effort to improve the performance of a car will be incomplete without an aero because we know that the addition of a wing to a car immediately increases the speed (no pun intended).
So Aston bolted a comprehensive aero package with a new front divider, front dive platforms, underbody turned vanes, and rear wing into the Vantage F1 version. In combination, the 200 kg downforce of the car is higher than the normal Vantage at its peak level, thus increasing its total aero balance.
Nevertheless, Aston also equipped the car with a vane grille and quad exhaust to show that this model is not the standard advantage and gave it 2*2 additional details of carbon fiber externals and special graphics.
The 2021 Aston Martin Vantage F1 Edition is available in Coupe and Roadster forms, with delivery planned for starting in May 2021, and costs Rs 1.42 Crores in the UK, and Rs 1.40 Crores in Germany.
