The Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster that we’ve been hearing since 2011, is finally getting a respectful, official debut. This limited edition Vantage excels in performance and gets 510 hp and 470 pound feet of torque from its 6.0 liter V12 engine.
The Aston Martin completes the 0-62mph sprint in 4.5 seconds and has a top speed of 190 mph. The roadster features a resdesigned rear decklid, chassis changes and a modified damper setup with unique valves and redesigned rear springs. It’s a clean convertible with a fiber body all around it. It roars with carbon fiber trimmings on the side strakes, front splitter and rear diffuser, mirror caps and rear lamp infills. Glass switches in the lower centre stack boost the oomph in the interior of this car.
Also only the V12 Vantage and new V12 Vantage Roadster are endowed with the "Sport" mode button, which enables the driver to select between two different powertrain modes.
Aston Martin offers an optional interior package with additional carbon fiber pieces. The new Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster is priced at £150,000 ($232,000) in the UK as of yet and also available in other select countries.
