Following the Formula 1® Qatar Grand Prix, the Official Medical Car of Formula 1®, DBX707 and Official Safety Car of Formula 1® , Vantage, will be on display at Alfardan Luxury Motors showroom in Alfardan Towers, West Bay. F1® enthusiasts will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with the revered Aston Martin Racing Green models until 21st October.
“Formula 1 is a key pillar for Aston Martin, and we’re delighted to be able to offer followers of the brand and sport the experience of seeing the Official Medical and Safety cars of Formula 1® first hand and learning about the incredible engineering behind them. It is the first time in the history of F1® that both cars carry the iconic Aston Martin wings, and to have both of them presented for the public to enjoy here in Qatar is really exciting,” Samer Bou Dargham, General Manager of Alfardan Luxury Motors said.
Aston Martin unleashed the might of the world’s most powerful luxury SUV, DBX707, as an Official Medical Car of Formula 1® at the start of the 2023 FIA Formula 1 World Championship™ season.
The critically acclaimed DBX707 received significant engine, transmission, suspension, and brake upgrades, which have elevated the Aston Martin brand to the pinnacle of SUV performance. Add to that pin-point dynamics, new commanding body styling and an upgraded interior, and DBX707 becomes the point at which performance meets luxury. It is the fastest, most powerful, best handling and most engaging car of its kind.
Achieving 0-100 km/h in just 3.1 seconds, DBX707 boasts 707PS with 900NM of torque. Engineered with an abundance of character and compelling capability, the Official Medical Car of Formula 1® showcases its power and handling prowess as it launches into action to support in the event of an emergency.
Essential equipment required, such as fire extinguishers, medical bags and a defibrillator all has its own place in the DBX707 so it is easy to check everything is onboard. The car is fitted with FIA-approved racing seats, each with a six-point racing harness. The passengers have access to communications from Race Control, and are able to see not only the FIA Marshalling system but biometric data from the F1® drivers and live television images, allowing early assessment of any incident.
The Vantage FIA Safety Car is packed with performance learnings from the many Aston Martin Vantage race cars that compete across the globe every year. It is inspired by Aston Martin’s highly desirable Vantage Formula 1® Edition, which has proved a huge success since being launched in 2021 to celebrate the marque’s return to the pinnacle of motorsport.
The Vantage has been adapted for the ultimate speed and handling. It produces 535PS, powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 delivering significant performance capability going from 0-100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds.
An additional FIA safety car livery, bodyside mounted radio antennas, LED rear number plate and a bespoke, roof-mounted LED light-bar mark it out as the leader of the pack. Inside, the driver and passenger have access to the FIA’s Marshalling System, which displays lights corresponding to any warning flags being shown, just as inside F1® cars themselves, and the car is well covered by cameras inside and out to provide live TV footage.
Both the Vantage and DBX707 are in the same Aston Martin Racing Green colours as the two Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One™ Team cars driven by Lance Stroll and Fernando Alonso.
