The heartbeat of Aston Martin’s sports car range became just a little bit faster with the introduction of the Vantage Roadster.
Joining the Vantage Coupe, which was launched in 2018, this convertible model amplifies the emotional appeal of a model renowned for delivering a compelling blend of awesome performance, outstanding dynamics and all-round everyday usability.
Powered by Aston Martin’s four-litre twin-turbo 510PS/685Nm V8 engine and mated to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, the Vantage Roadster accelerates from 0-60mph in just 3.7 seconds and is capable of 190mph. Careful development of structural shear panels and chassis components ensures the Vantage Roadster retains the strong dynamic ability and sporting character achieved in the coupe, with no compromise to feel or refinement.
Matt Becker, Aston Martin Chief Engineer, says: “Convertible sports cars are often seen as compromised when compared to their coupe equivalents, but the Vantage Roadster remains absolutely dedicated true to its mission of delivering precise, agile and expressive handling dynamics combined with stonking straight-line performance. And of course, there’s the added dimension of driving a great-sounding sports car with the roof down.”
