Two years after the launch of the Aston Martin Vantage Coupé comes the convertible version, the most requested according to the company\\’s own words. The Aston Martin Vantage Roadster is presented with the same arguments as that, although it adds the possibility of enjoying the most radical speed with the sky as a backdrop .
The Aston Martin Vantage Roadster also incorporates the 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine and 510 hp with an 8- speed automatic transmission that allows it to reach a maximum speed of 305 km / h (with a roofed body the maximum reaches 350 km / h ) and accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in just 3.7 seconds.

Sportsmanship as a personality trait
The change of the rigid roof by the canopy and the folding system has earned him only 60 kg (on the scale it reflects 1,628 kg). Otherwise, at the technical level, it is the same car as the Coupé. Maintains adaptive damping, dynamic stability control, dynamic torque vectoring and electronic rear differential .
In turn, the driver will have several chassis modes, including Sport, Sport and Track options , this one designed for track enjoyment. Of course, although it seems created by and for enjoyment at high speeds with the engine running, from the company it points out that it adapts the same to the road as to the race track.
Design that falls in love

The front stands out for the traditional grill in a very low position and occupies practically the width of the bumper, with small headlights in high position and edges that print nerve on both sides of the Aston Martin logo.
In profile we find a vehicle with very soft lines and with oversized wheel arches to accommodate wheels with 20-inch wheels with measures of 255/40 / R20 in front and 295/35 R20 behind.
The interior is also known and, although in its conception a special emphasis was placed on squeezing the maximum sportsmanship of the model, comfort and technology have not been renounced.
Thus, to some seats of type backet and some trim of leather, Alcantara and noble materials, adds a dual zone climate control, instrumentation of watches with a small display in the center, while in the console several controls and buttons have been arranged away from the fashion to concentrate all the handling of the vehicle on the central screen, which also has and 8 inches . Here the peripheral vision camera is projected very useful when parking.
