After 25 years of using Mercedes-AMG models, Formula 1 is changing supplier for its safety cars for this year. Aston Martin is taking the role, supplying both pace cars and medical-intervention vehicles, and the British sports-car maker has lost no time celebrating the connection with this roadgoing version, the Vantage F1 Edition, featuring many of the same upgrades as its track-only sister.
Positioned above the existing Vantage, the F1 Edition will be available in both coupe and roadster form and will be available in the same Aston Martin Green worn by both its safety-car sibling and the cars of Aston’s Formula 1 team, which was rebranded from Racing Point for this season. Both gloss and satin paint finishes will be available, and buyers will be able to choose other colors. Regardless of choice, a gray racing graphic runs from the front badge over the roof and the back of the car, although this can be deleted for anyone wanting a subtler look.
