Aston Martin unveiled the new V12 Vantage S Roadster in a press release issued July 15. This new powerful convertible will arrive later this year and is set to become both the British marque’s fastest and fastest-accelerating roadster to date.
Providing the power is the AM 6.0-liter V12 engine that features state-of-the-art Bosch engine management. This engine proves its worthiness by putting out 565 bhp and 457 lb-ft of torque. Put this power though the Sportshift III 7-speed transmission and to the wheels, and the V12 Vantage S Roadster will sprint from a standstill to 60 mph in 3.9 mph, topping out at 201 mph.
Aston Martin Director of Design, Marek Reichman, said in the press release: “The V12 Vantage S Roadster is the mechanical embodiment of our company’s exceptional spirit. Beautiful, powerful and spirited it is as spectacular to listen to as it is to look at. The new roadster is truly a treat for the senses with, underlying all this, the capacity to deliver one of the most dynamic, exciting and stirring driving experiences in our current range.”

Providing a wide range of driving capabilities are the three driving modes that include ‘Normal’, ‘Sport’ and ‘Track.’ Each of these can be initiated through the center console and alters the car’s throttle response, gearshift speed and timing, steering assistance, exhaust note and more.
As far as appearances go, the V12 Vantage S Roadster features Aston Martin’s signature cues, such as the grille, as well as a touches that make the car very unique. For starters, that iconic grille is now comprised of carbon fiber, which is complemented nicely by the optional interior Carbon Pack. Another distinct option featured on the V12 Vantage S Roadster comes in the form of lightweight forged alloy ten-spoke wheels.
