Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster

British carmaker Aston Martin had finally revealed, in an official way, their new model, the 2013 V12 Vantage Roadster. A little in contradiction with the previous images, this white exterior color goes perfectly with the red soft top and the interior color that also matches. Under the hood it hides a 6.0-liter V12 engine capable of developing 510 horsepower and 570 Nm of torque. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and to reach a top speed of 305 km/h.

Of course, the performance of the engine depends on the performance mode selected by the driver. For example, the Normal mode offers a quieter drive and the Sport one on the contrary; it delivers a more dynamic experience. Aston Martin will build the 2013 V12 Vantage Roadster as a limited edition and will be sold in selected markets everywhere on the globe. Some of its elements were kept from the V12 Vantage Coupe, but some were redesigned.

The ones that enter this category are a modified rear damper set-up, front and rear damper calve tuning, but also a new rear spring design. The straight-line performance, but also the incredible handling is being ensured by Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. In terms of visual effects, the new 2013 Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster features the new forged alloy wheel design, carbon fiber rear lamp in-fills and carbon fiber mirror caps. Taking all these into consideration, this is a very special and exclusive Aston Martin. In terms of interior, the 2013 V12 Vantage Roadster features elements that offer a luxurious ambience in the cabin like carbon fiber gearshift surround, and carbon fiber fascia. The ones interest should know that to purchase it, they must take out of their pockets GBP150.000.
