The V8 Vantage roadster embodies the qualities that are integral to Aston Martin: power, beauty and soul.
Representing the essence of pure driving pleasure, the new roadster is a compact sports car that offers an astonishing blend of performance and exhilaration, a car with two distinct personalities: open and invigorating, or closed, cosseting and protective.
The V8 Vantage roadster draws inspiration from Aston Martin’s long-term and highly successful partnership with swiss watchmaker Jaeger-Lecoultre, in particular the legendary Reverso watch.
An Aston Martin is about power, and the Vantage Roadster delivers power without compromise. Moulded in the finest twoseater sports car tradition, the Vantage Roadster has outstanding abilities. Its V8 engine provides high performance — remarkable acceleration and 380 brake horsepower, all delivered with pitch-perfect dynamics. The Vantage Roadster has been engineered for poise, balance and grace, expressed aesthetically by the flowing, muscular bodywork.
An Aston Martin is about beauty, a perfectly proportioned composition of lines and curves. The design of the Vantage Roadster is elegant and uncompromising, a single fluid form with characteristic attention to detail, both inside and out, representing the open sports car in its purest form. The Vantage Roadster pays homage to Aston Martins of the past while remaining a defiantly contemporary statement.
An Aston Martin is about soul, the spirit of engineering excellence, technological innovation and physical perfection, combined in a package that ensures every journey is an event to remember. A car, a driver and the open road: the three essential ingredients. The Vantage Roadster adds one more to the mix: the unbeatable sensation of open-air motoring.
Instantly recognisable as an Aston Martin, the Vantage Roadster is a unique and singular design statement that has been styled and engineered to excel from every angle. The fabric hood stows neatly beneath a metal tonneau cover, its lines blending seamlessly into the muscular rear haunches of this powerful car. Driver and passenger are ensconced in leather-lined luxury within a cabin that displays Aston Martin’s celebrated craft and technology skills.
Few open-topped sports cars offer the driver such an invigorating ride, especially through this landscape of contrasts and sudden changes. Both sports car and longdistance tourer, with either an exhilarating open cockpit or an all-enveloping hood, the Vantage Roadster can be cold-blooded in its efficiency or the hottest car on the road.
