Aston Martin Vantage confirmed as official 2021 Formula One safety car

An Aston Martin Vantage will serve as the official Formula One safety car for the first time this year, following 25 years of Mercedes-AMG exclusivity. The heavily-modified sports car – which will be driven by the FIA’s Bernd Mayländer – reportedly puts out 393kW from its 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, up 18kW over the road-going variant's 375kW. Torque peaks at 685Nm, allowing for a 0-100km/h sprint in a claimed 3.5 seconds.

That's right, the Vantage will go from zero to open-topped in just seven seconds at speeds up to 50km/h – just under twice as long as it takes to go from zero to 100km/h, according to Aston Martin.

In something of an unintentional old v new battle, Mat Watson from the UK's Carwow pitted a DB11 V8 against a previous-generation Vantage GT8 – the latter owned by popular YouTube personality, Shmee150.
