It’s been a few months now that Mercedes Benz will be sharing the order to supply the Formula 1 Championship safety car with Aston Martin next season. We can now face these newcomers.
Aston Martin, led by Montreal Lawrence Strol, last week demonstrated the revised Vantage for the first time, taking care to limit Louis Hamilton’s enthusiasm during the race’s neutralization stages. This prestigious business card is the first of its kind for the English brand.
The theme of “British Racing Green” is still run by Bernd Melander, a colorful two – seater sporty in a timeless green, with some changes. The power of the twin-turbo V8 engine of 4.0L, randomly increased by AMG GT, other safety car, 25 hp to 528 hp overall.
Engineers modified Vantage’s aerodynamics to produce more downforce, thereby improving its stability at higher speeds. As the frame hardened, the dumping was also modified. Clearly, all particularly sophisticated communication equipment is on board to ensure the logistics of intervention without spots.
This vantage is doubled by the DBX – brand SUV, which provides an emergency response to accidents.
We will be able to see both vehicles at work during the first Grand Prix of the season, which will be held in Bahrain on March 28.
