Open Invitation

Gaydon ( UK), July 16, 2014

The development department of Aston Martin brewing once again a roadster for good and old recipes together. Take a relatively light vehicle aluminum base, a huge engine and rear wheel drive. Then can already be served: A sharp court directly from Hell's Kitchen.

Hats off: Fast Roadster

Actually, the new Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster, the full name, just a current V12 Vantage S without a roof. That makes him but along the way to the far the fastest accelerating Aston Martin roadster of all time. In terms of figures: 4.1 seconds from zero to 100 km / h and a top speed of 323 km / h Point.

Music to the ears

Another positive side effect of topless variant is that the sound from Dollen dozen to pass unrestricted into the ears of the occupants. The music is, as in the coupe from a six-liter Jukebox and unleashes 573 horses who develop a tractive force of 620 Newton meters.

Please upshift

It is shifted in the British roadster with a semi-automatic seven-speed gearbox. This replaces the manual six-speed transmission from the last V12 Vantage Roadster and saves a further 20 kilograms.

Ambitious athletic

Accustomed sporting genes also have other technical vehicle components. The adaptive suspension can be divided into the three levels of " Normal", " Sport" and " track " set, the brake discs are made ​​of ceramic and the exhaust also got a Abspeckkur.

Inside and outside carboxylic

If that still does not appear sporty enough, you can simply pick up again in the drawer with the add-on parts made ​​of carbon. Thus, virtually all exterior and interior components from the front apron to the center console, available in the tissue components.

Bon Appetite

What does that cost? Aston Martin seems to customers does not want to spoil the appetite, for a price not yet called the manufacturer from Gaydon. With 190,000 euros but you should probably at least be expected. In the "bargain price " it may be sometimes no matter that you can not even learn one important detail: How fast and to what speed the Vantage obenrum free thyself. But that has still got time, finally there is still no date for the official launch . (ml )
