Aston Martin Launches Vantage F1® Edition in Malaysia

Aston Martin Vantage F1 Edition arrives in Malaysia in time for their F1 success.

Aston Martin, a luxury sports car brand, has introduced the Vantage F1® Edition in Malaysia with a price of RM978,000 before duties, taxes and additional customisation. This vehicle celebrates the marque’s return to Formula 1® and establishes the Vantage as a true sports car.

The Vantage F1® Edition is the fastest and most focused Vantage model to date, boasting unique and significant chassis and aerodynamic improvements developed by Aston Martin’s engineering team.

This core production offering sits at the top of the Vantage model line, offering the ultimate expression of performance and dynamism. It is the most powerful Vantage model, with a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine that provides a maximum of 535PS and peak torque of 685Nm, sustained for longer to further increase tractability and in-gear urgency.

The Vantage F1® Edition’s chassis has been optimized for performance, with suspension and steering modifications that increase front structural stiffness for a further improvement in steering feel and response. Reworked damper internals have increased the dampers’ effective force range, while a higher rear spring rate and lateral stiffness help sharpen turn-in, increase traction, and ensure the rear-end is tuned to compliment the front-end’s rate of response.

In addition, the Vantage F1® Edition comes with 21” wheels and Pirelli tyres that provide greater feedback to the driver, ensuring progressive on-limit handling for maximum confidence in even the most extreme track driving scenarios.

The vehicle’s aero kit delivers positive front and rear downforce, totalling up to 200kg more downforce than the regular Vantage at top speed while optimising the overall balance of the car.

It includes a full-width front splitter, front dive planes, underbody turning vanes, and a new rear wing. The rear diffuser remains unchanged but works in tandem with the new aerodynamic features.

The Vantage F1® Edition expresses its intensified performance with limited, yet distinctive colour palettes and trim options. One colour scheme celebrates Aston Martin’s return to Formula 1® with an Aston Martin Racing Green colour scheme, mimicking the Aston Martin Cognizant Formula OneTM Team car, as well as the Official Safety Car of Formula 1®.


Exterior paint colours are available in both a Satin or Gloss finish, and other colour options include Jet Black and Lunar White, all of which are complimented by a Solid Matte Dark Grey racing graphic.

The interior is covered in Obsidian Black leather and Phantom Grey Alcantara. Contrast stripes and stitching can be ordered in Lime Green, Obsidian Black, Titanium Grey or Spicy Red.
