Aston Martin unveil new safety car for Saudi Arabian GP

Aston Martin is set to unveil its new Vintage Car, serving as the official safety car for Formula One, starting at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix in Jeddah. The British-based team will share car duties with Mercedes-AMG throughout the season, alongside the DBX707 medical car.

The Vintage Car has undergone specific enhancements to align with Formula One track requirements, including modifications to underfloor aerodynamics to streamline airflow at high speeds, an extended front splitter, and an imposing rear wing for increased downforce.

Marco Mattiacc, the global chief brand and commercial officer of Aston Martin, said, “Vantage is the very essence of the Aston Martin brand, so to see the fastest, most driver-focused Vantage yet play such an important role in the prestigious FIA Formula One World Championship is a source of great pride for us.”

“For brand awareness, there is no global, high-octane sporting series that can match F1. Building on the natural synergies between the sport and Aston Martin, racing fans will not only see Aston Martin’s AMR24s on track but also two of our most exciting performance models, Vantage and the award-winning DBX707,” Marco concluded.
