The Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster has been revealed with a powerful 690 horsepower

One of the most powerful ever with a total of 690 horsepower

The week began with one V12 convertible from Aston Martin, and it will end with one more. However, the V12 Vantage Roadster, which will go on sale at the end of the year, features a folding soft top unlike the DBR22. Although it isn’t quite as powerful as the DBR22, it is still highly capable, and it is nearly as quick as its coupe twin.

Research Performance enhancements for the V12 Vantage Roadster are nearly comparable to those for the coupe (for example, Mazda). A 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 with 690 horsepower and 555 pound-feet of torque powers it. An eight-speed automated rear differential transmits power to the rear differential. In actual driving, the Roadster is only 0.1 second slower to 60 mph at 3.5 seconds and can reach the same top speed of 200 mph as the coupe.

All throughout, significant weight savings have been discovered. As part of other weight-saving measures, including the carbon ceramic brakes with six-piston front calipers and four-piston rear calipers, the exhaust is a system made of extremely thin stainless steel. The front bumper, hood, fenders, and side sills are made of carbon fiber, while the rear bumper and trunk lid are composite. The body has been expanded by 1.6 inches. A splitter and diffuser increase downforce, while a redesigned grille and hood vent improve cooling. As a gesture to a classier look, the coupe’s huge rear wing isn’t standard, but it is available as part of an aerodynamic package. Along with optional carbon fiber sport seats, optional forged wheels might help you lose even more weight.

The Roadster will begin production in the third quarter of this year, with deliveries following. Only 249 will be constructed. As a result, it is more uncommon than the coupe, of which Aston produced 333 examples. Roadsters have all been reserved, and Aston omitted price.
