Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster with 517 hp and 306 km /h
However, the Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster offers little new. The two-seater largely takes over the V12 body specifications from the coupé brother. Only the carbon spoilers on the front and on the trunk lid have been redesigned. The chassis has also been retuned. The six-liter V12 engine also comes from the coupé. The vacuum cleaner brings it to 517 hp and a maximum torque of 570 Nm. The twelve-cylinder in the convertible is combined with a manual six-speed gearbox. This should accelerate the approximately 1.8 ton Aston Martin from zero to 100 km /h in 4.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 306 km /h.
For further equipment of the Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster include, among other things, colored carbon applications and add-on parts, glass switches on the center console and redesigned 19-inch forged rims with 255/35 tires at the front and 295/30 at the rear. The surcharge list includes a 1,000 watt audio system from Bang & Olufsen.
The price list for the new Ason Martin V12 Vantage Roadster starts at 150,000 pounds, the equivalent of around 190,000 euros.
