After the V8 Vantage N420 coupe, Aston Martin has unveiled today a roadster version for this special edition. The roadster version will go on sale at a price of $145,000.

Like the coupe version, the roadster is powered by a 4.7-liter engine that delivers 420bhp and it mated to a a six-speed manual or optional Sportshift automated manual transmission. Also the car is 27 kilos lighter than a standard V8 Vantage.

The N420 edition is distinguished by a carbon fibre splitter, side strakes and diffuser, while bold 10-spoke diamond turned alloy wheels complete with gloss black finish, black mesh vents and ’Graphitic’ tailpipe finishers complete the coordinated look. The interior gets graphite instruments, leather or Alcantara® steering wheel, special N420 sill plaques and lightweight carbon fiber seats, complete with ’Race Track’ stitching as in the V12 Vantage. Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control, and Park Distance Control are also standard. It will be offered in ’Rose’ yellow, ’Kermit’ green and ’Elwood’ blue exterior color.

It is so refreshing to see a different platform and design on their vehicle! smiley Well, I noticed that it looks more aggressive and elegant on its mileage and air intake! Anyway, what’s the engine specs of it?

It looks so elegant on its car lines, and I must say that it is already looking great on its sleek black body paint. I also noticed that its headlight is very different on their typical design but still looks cute on it.

This roadster is absolutely looking great in spite of having a simple detailing, and I must say that it looks so cool on its sleek body paint, and I’m glad that it had an impressive engine.

It was and still is the most beautiful car in the world currently in production. Not the DBS, not the DB9, not even any Ferrari or Maser, just the V8 Vantage. Hope to own one in the near future!
