Formula 1 young sensation Max Verstappen freshly joined Aston Martin’s Dynamics Chief Engineer Matt Becker, gets first taste of new Aston Martin Vantage – from a “VP-level car,” a verification prototype.

The young three-time F1 race winner, was invited by Aston Martin to help out with the final stages of development of the new Vantage during a test day at Rockingham circuit in the Midlands.

The Red Bull F1 driver, Verstappen has provided Aston Martin engineers with feedback on the car as part of the brand’s partnership with the Formula 1 racer’s team.

New generation Vantage will have “more than 500hp and 505lb ft of torque” when it is officially unveiled on 21 November 2017.

“I really like the rear diffuser,” says Max Verstappen in the video. “It’s really aggressive and sporty.”

Aston Martin are already associates with Red Bull Racing, and next season the legendary British manufacturer will be the official title sponsor of the team.

The new Vantage is the latest in Aston’s much-anticipated range of new-generation cars that began with the superb DB11.

It’s suspected to utilise the AMG-sourced 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 recently seen in the DB11 Volante in what we can assume will be a slightly sportier state of tune. Styling should pull on various corners of Aston’s portfolio including a silhouette seemingly borrowed from Bond’s DB10.
