One in the us fueled in part by the hit next flick show drive to survive it would be easy for aston martin to slap f1 badges onto a road-going vantage and call it a special trim but there’s way more to the 2021 vantage f1 edition that meets the eye while this model definitely stands out over the base coupe with its racy bodywork and matte paint job aston also

Upgraded the engine suspension and transmission to make it feel sharper after some time behind the wheel it’s obvious that this car is worthy of its performance badging and its 162 000 price tag the aston martin vantage is a handsome vehicle with an athletic stance and crisp angles that give it archetypical sports car proportions signature aston design elements

Ensure that it doesn’t look overly generic two other editors have criticized the vantage’s mesh mouth grille and that’s understandable but visual tweaks to the f1 edition help alleviate most of those gaping front-end qualities horizontal strikes lessen the impact of the vantage’s black hole like front fascia while the removal of the protruding grille surround

Results in a cleaner simpler front end the ridiculous 20 spoke 21-inch wheels are exclusive to this model too and might be the best of the vantage bunch while f1 edition badges dot the exterior and a daunting wing lives on the trunk lid and if you can get the car up to its 195 mile per hour top speed that wing adds an extra 440 pounds of downforce the lovely

Aston martin racing green paint is an f1 special available in both gloss and satin finishes paired with dark gray accents that stretch all the way from the hood to the trunk lid our tester with a latter satin finish looked absolutely stunning in any light but you can also get this model in lunar white and jet black if you’re feeling a bit boring the basic layout

Doesn’t stray far from the general vantage formula which includes crystallized buttons for the shifter and twin air vents beneath an 8.0 inch screen but at least this aston gains a few features exclusive to f1 model like additional alcantara upholstery on the center console and door panels new sport bucket seats with a neon central stripe and neon colored contrast

Stitching throughout all of it helps the cabin feel more premium the bucket seats in this car are sublime they follow the contours of your body like a glove and the mix of leather and extra alcantara is a cozy combo that feels extra soft and of the highest quality adding alcantara to the center console and door panels is a nice touch too making for for a comfy

Place to rest your elbows but as with many high-end sports cars the vantage has its drawbacks in the comfort department this car is loud on the highway with the rear wing giving off more wind noise and because the rear springs are 10 stiffer than on the standard vantage the f1 edition is harsher around town than a comparable porsche 911 that said the vantage

Isn’t as back breaking as you might think in the softest sport setting the ride is pliable over in perfect pavement sport plus and track modes change that stiffening up to reduce roll but even with ultra thin pirelli p0 tires 255 35 zr21 front and 295.30 zr21 rear the vantage is a fine daily driver this is the one area where the vantage falls short aston uses

A comparably tiny 8.0 inch display running an outdated version of the mercedes-benz command infotainment system with poorly re-skinned graphics and it doesn’t even offer apple carplay or android auto at least the click wheel controller makes everything easy to navigate considering the screen itself isn’t touch capable but that’s a small consolidation for an

Otherwise small display and an outdated interface by comparison the porsche 911 turbo offers a handsome 10.9 inch touchscreen display with gorgeous graphics and a concise setup the audi r8 does away with a central screen entirely for example opting for a streamlined layout entirely within the digital cluster that we much prefer the vantage’s digital cluster

Is basic only offers a bit of configuration the vantage isn’t class competitive here our tester also comes equipped with aston martin premium speakers which boosts the overall audio experience but it’s a lofty two thousand dollars on its own compared to some other upgraded audio systems we’ve experienced that aren’t as individually pricey the audi r8s bang

And olufsen sound system for example outputs a better sound unlike some other styling packages the f1 edition offers more than just good looks powering this model is a reworked version of the vantages mercedes amg twin turbocharged 4.0 liter v8 the output improves from 503 horsepower in the standard model to 528 here while torque stays put at 505 pound-feet
