That vibration you feel is the collective shaking of Formula One teams in their boots now that Aston Martin has unveiled their first F1 car in more than 60 years. The iconic British marque has dropped the curtain on the AMR21, and it looks to be a worthy successor to the legendary DBR4.
The Aston Martin AMR21 is powered by the turbocharged Mercedes-AMG F1 M12 E Performance V6 engine with hybrid energy recovery and weighs in at a scant 752kg with the driver. Speaking of drivers, F1 legend Sebastian Vettel is slated to be one of Aston’s pilots, while 22-year-old Lance Stroll will be behind the wheel of a second AMR21. Both will sport an attractive Aston Martin racing green livery that pays homage to the brand’s past. According to Aston Martin, their F1 team will help showcase the brand’s capabilities to a global audience while also driving technological innovations that will shape Aston’s future road cars. The Aston Martin AMR21 is set to make its grand debut on the F1 stage at the Bahrain Grand Prix on March 28.
