The heartbeat of Aston Martin’s sports car range just got faster with the introduction of their new 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 blend of performance, dynamics, and everyday usability.
The Vantage Roadster shares the Vantage Coupe’s commitment to driving thrills. Powered by Aston Martin’s 4.0-litre twin-turbo 510PS/685Nm V8 engine and mated to an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission, the Vantage Roadster accelerates from 0-60mph in just 3.7sec and is capable of 190mph with the roof raised.
While the Vantage Roadster mirrors the Coupe’s tactility, pace, and cornering performance, the design of the body is very much its own. The tautly tailored fabric hood features a compact powered Z-fold mechanism that ensures rapid operation (lowered in 6.7 or raised in 6.8 seconds at speeds of up to 50kmh/31mph). In fact, the roof of Vantage Roadster has the fastest full operating cycle of any automatic automotive convertible system.
An impressively low stack height pays the double dividend of allowing Aston Martin’s design team the latitude to create a seamless rear profile with minimal impact on the Roadster’s luggage space. Indeed, with a boot capacity of 200-litres, it is possible to stow a full-sized golf bag and accessories.
