The body is sculpted in such a way that everything looks both aggressive and attractive. The latest design direction makes everything look even lower and wider than it already is, with narrow LED headlights and a gaping signature front grille. Fender vents feature too. 20-inch wheels are standard across the range, but the real drama is at the back, where a massive diffuser houses quad-exit exhaust tips, and a continuous taillight spans the width of the rear, flowing into an integrated duckbill spoiler. To coincide with the Vantage becoming one of the official F1 safety cars, the F1 Edition boasts a front splitter with canards, prominent rear wing, and underbody aero for an additional 441 lbs of downforce. A quad-tip exhaust, exclusive 21-inch wheels, and a slatted grille are all included.
As we've mentioned above, this is one wide and low car. Width, excluding the extended mirrors, measures 76.5 inches, while the stance keeps the car at a shockingly low 50.1 inches. As a six-footer, that means the roof barely goes past my waist. Length is considerable, but not excessive, measuring 175.8 inches, with a wheelbase of 106.5 inches. The F1 Edition measures a full inch longer. The dry weight (without fluids) starts at 3,373 pounds on a regular Vantage when equipped with lightweight options. The F1 Edition has a dry weight of 3,461 lbs.

As you'd expect from a low-volume British sports car manufacturer, choices on the color of your vehicle are expansive. If you were one of the lucky few to get one of the first models, your Vantage 59 would have arrived in Stirling Green with Lime accents. The regular Vantage has far more options, however, with your choice of Blacks & Greys, Purples & Blues, Greens, Reds, Bronzes & Oranges, and Silvers & Whites.
The black palette includes hues like Jet Black, China Grey, and Magnetic Silver. Aston Martin is not a brand for fading into the background, though, so you can truly stand out with colors like Royal Indigo, Kermit Green, Aston Martin Racing Green, Supernova Red, Cosmopolitan Yellow, and Golden Saffron. Four different brake caliper colors can further enliven the exterior of the Vantage.
If you're one of the few who spec an F1 Edition, you can opt for either satin or gloss finishes for the Aston Martin Racing Green, but other options include Jet Black and Lunar White. All F1 Editions receive a Solid Matte Dark Grey racing stripe over the top, although this can be deleted if you wish.
