Driving has never been such an exquisite experience as with the new Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster. This new open-air thrill allows drivers to explore new lands and cities while experiencing the ultimate performance that this limited-production vehicle offers. With only 249 of these beauties available globally, they are sure to remain one of the most sought-after vehicles on the market, a status solidified by its unmistakable looks. But, unfortunately, any driver who wishes to be part of this phenomenon is already too late as orders are closed, and deliveries are scheduled for late 2022.
The performance of Aston Martin’s new V12 Vantage Roadster
The V12 Vantage Roadster boasts a compelling combination of dramatic widebody design, ground-hugging wide-track suspension and – for the first time in a Vantage Roadster – the mighty 5.2-litre Twin-Turbo V12 engine. With searing straight-line speed and the unfiltered howl of Aston Martin’s sonorous 700PS 12-cylinder engine, the V12 Vantage Roadster elevates the open-top driving experience to a scintillating new level.

Key to this exhilarating driving experience is the powerhouse of the engine. Developing 700PS at 6500 rpm and 753Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm, the quad-cam 60-deg 5.2-litre V12 is a true force of nature. With a power-to-weight ratio of 372PS-per-ton and an endlessly impressive delivery which combines effortless in-gear response with epic acceleration, every squeeze of the V12 Vantage Roadster’s throttle leads to an unforgettable adrenaline rush.

Accelerating from rest to 60mph in just 3.5sec and with a top speed of 200mph, the V12 Vantage Roadster occupies the highest echelon of open-top sportscar performance. Final visual touches come in the form of impressive 21in alloy wheels, which are offered in two finishes, satin black or satin black diamond turned. In addition, an optional lightweight forged wheel option is available in both satin black, and satin black diamond turned.
