Aston Martin Vantage Roadster Exterior Design in StudioAutomoto TV
The heartbeat of Aston Martin's sports car range just got that little bit faster with the introduction of the new Aston Martin 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 compelling blend of potent performance, outstanding dynamics and everyday usability. Testament to the uncompromising design, engineering and execution of this scintillating open-top two-seater, Aston Martin Vantage Roadster shares the Vantage Coupe's absolute 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, Aston Martin Vantage Roadster accelerates from 0-60mph in just 3.7sec and is capable of 190mph with the roof raised. Weight increases by just 60kg compared with the Coupe thanks to a new, lighter Z-fold roof mechanism and optimised exterior and chassis revisions throughout. Careful development of structural shear panels and chassis components ensures the Aston Martin Vantage Roadster retains the strong dynamic ability and sporting character achieved in the Coupe with no compromise to feel or refinement. Sharing the same Adaptive Damping, Dynamic Stability Control, Dynamic Torque Vectoring and Electronic Rear Differential, the Roadster benefits from specific dynamic refinements. These include a bespoke tune for the rear dampers, Adaptive Damping System software and ESP calibration.
