565bhp Aston Vantage S Roadster

565bhp Aston Vantage S Roadster

I am already in with love the Aston Vantage S Roadster

It’s basically theV12 Vantage S without a roof, and in doing so becomes the fastest-accelerating Aston Roadster ever built. It’ll go from 0-62mph in 4.1s and top out at 201mph (0-60mph is quoted at 3.9s). The V12 Vantage S Coupe, for reference, does the 0-62mph sprint in 3.9 seconds.

So, about that V12. You’re looking at a nice, hefty 565bhp and 457lb ft of torque, all marshalled through the same Sportshift III seven-speed automated manual gearbox as the Coupe (and replacing the six-speed manual from the last V12 Vantage Roadster), driving the rear wheels.

We’re still waiting on UK pricing, but expect to pay over £150k.
