Aston Martin has published a darkened preview image of an upper version of its Vantage coupé. The official premiere will happen on Monday, March 22.
The features we can make out are a big rear spoiler, unique wheel designs, and aggressive side air outlets. The colour scheme mirrors that of the recently introduced Vantage Safety Car for the 2021 Formula 1 season (pictured above).
Certain visual clues point out that the newcomer is a road version of the F1 track car.
Compared with the regular Vantage, this new modification should bring more power (up to 528 bhp) from the upgraded 4.0-litre bi-turbo V8 engine, improved aerodynamics and acceleration at higher speeds, greater downforce, reinforced chassis, transmission recalibration, and tweaks to the suspension, steering, dampers.
Expect the interior changes will be minor.
