Combining the ferocious performance of the V12 Vantage S and the thrill of open top driving, the V12 Vantage S Roadster offers a whole new level of driving exhilaration. A potent mixture of incredible power, superb agility and beautiful design, drivers of the V12 Vantage S Roadster will find themselves presented with a devilishly charismatic driving machine.
Aston Martin’s V12 Vantage Roadster is a true icon of contemporary design, demonstrating a silhouette of stunning proportions, regardless of whether the roof is up or down. The V12 Vantage S Roadster is a car that is balanced and capable in every situation.
A masterpiece of restrained aggression, the V12 Vantage S Roadster is a car of both subtlety and presence. Much like its hardtop sibling, the V12 Vantage S Roadster demonstrates an all-new carbon fibre grille that has been inspired by the beautiful Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Concept. Doing away with the famous aluminium vanes, this new grille hints aesthetically at the car’s ferocious nature whilst also allowing optimum airflow to the fantastic V12.
The V12 Vantage S Roadster retains the same beautiful compact dimensions as the previous Vantage but adds additional details and the ability to remove the roof. A triumph of engineering, the roof can be taken down on the move – at speeds up to 30mph – in just 14 seconds. Even with the canopy removed, the car remains as pure and toned as its coupe sibling; an achievement that Aston Martin are very proud of.
With a plethora of bold graphics, subtle colour combinations and personal design touches available, the V12 Vantage S Roadster can be extensively personalised by each owner to ensure that, if desired, their car is entirely bespoke to their taste.
Boasting Aston Martin’s new AM28 6.0-litre V12 engine, the V12 Vantage S Roadster is the fastest convertible in the Aston Martin range. Equipped with 536bhp and 620nm of torque, the V12 Vantage S Roadster is capable of a top speed over 200mph and a remarkable 0-60mph sprint in just 3.9 seconds.
Feeding all of this immense power to the rear wheels is a choice of either the Sportshift III automated manual gearbox or a seven-speed manual gearbox.
Where the Sportshift III offers a more refined experience and the manual ensures maximum engagement, the transmission as a whole has been honed by Aston Martin’s GT racing programme and brings motorsport engineering and capability to the road.
Whilst the V12 Vantage S Roadster may demonstrate scorching performance figures, there is more to the car than just incredible power and speed; the V12 heart is combined with a lightweight chassis and three-stage adaptive damping to ensure that the V12 Vantage S Roadster is just as at home on a tight winding road as it is on the straights.
On the interior, the V12 Vantage S Roadster seamlessly combines what you would expect from a luxury sports car and the very essence of where it was honed – on the track.
Seated in new Sports seats, the driver and passenger are party to a blend of luxurious and lightweight materials that promote a never ending feeling of theatre.
As with the exterior, the interior of the V12 Vantage S Roadster can be tailored to each owner’s own personal taste. With a host of tailored options available, owners of the V12 Vantage S Roadster have the ability to choose items such as bespoke stitch & stripe designs for a more luxurious car or features such as an Alcantara-trimmed steering wheel or carbon fibre gearshift paddles for a more track focused feel.
All V12 Vantage S Roadsters come as standard with Aston Martin’s AMi III infotainment system. The very latest in Aston Martin technology, the system offers access to technology such as Satellite Navigation, Bluetooth connectivity and text message integration in an interactive experience that is wholly intuitive.
