The Aston Martin Vantage is the smallest car in the current Aston range and it was created to be a more entertaining sports car with a cheaper price point when compared to the GT cars like the DB9 . The car was lauded for its looks and handling abilities, but many felt the standard V-8 lacked the proper grunt for a car like this. Aston Martin rose to the challenge and created the V12 Vantage by cramming the 12-cyliiunder engine from the DB9 into the engine bay of the smaller car. Just last year, Aston turned up the wick even farther with a faster, lighter, and more exciting V12 Vantage S model. The big issue with the V12 Vantage S is that is only available in hardtop form, not the seductive roadster. Until now, anyways.
That’s right, Aston has just announced a drop-top version of the V12 Vantage S, and it is as amazing as it sounds.
Functionally the new V12 Vantage S Roadster is identical to its hard-top sibling. That means powerful V-12 engine, reduced weight, increased torque, and a top speed of more than 200 mph.
