The English super car builder Aston Martin unveiled the coupe version of their V12 Vantage back at Geneva, and very shortly there will also be a roadster. The official debut for the drop top Bond car is likely to take place at the Frankfurt Motor Show, and should be limited to a very lucky 500 individuals.

The Vantage Roadster is be powered by a 6.0 Liter V12 that produces 510 HP and 420 lb-ft of torque. The open air Aston can go from 0 to 60 MPH in only 4.2 seconds and doesn’t stop until it reaches a top speed of 190 MPH.

Well it shows how shallow the buyers are, 2 mil is knocking on the door of coachbuilt territory, and I dont think that those 77 people have been knocking on ferrari’s door to have coachbuilt cars... well, why not people! is it because everyone wouldn’t know it cost you $1.8 mil? or maybe they wouldn’t recognize it as being a custom ferrari?

I learned that all of the Aston Martin One-77’s have been spoken for are sold out. I say "not surprising" because, well, there are only going to be 77 built, and there are 100 orders and ofcourse they’re going to be fabulously gorgeous and powerful. I also learned that the Paris Motor Show unveiling was so exclusive the media isn’t even invited. so now we satisfy ourselves with the scrap of pictures.

The Aston Martin V8 Vantage and V12 Vantage are a hand built sports car series . Aston Martin has previously used the "Vantage" name on high performance variants of their existing GT models, notably on the Virage-based car of the 1990s. The modern car, in contrast, is the leanest and most agile car in Aston’s lineup
