Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster
In the summer of 2013, the British manufacturer presented an updated coupe Aston Martin V12 Vantage S, and exactly a year later, an open version of the model arrived, which became the most powerful roadster in the history of the company.
The new Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster is powered by the same 6.0-liter engine producing 573 hp. (620 Nm), which is also installed on the machine with a hard top. It is paired with the Sportshift III seven-speed robot, which replaced the six-speed manual gearbox on a pre-styling car. Later, it became possible to order a car with a new seven-speed manual transmission equipped with the AMSHIFT automatic re-gas function.
Due to the roof folding mechanism, the roadster turned out to be 80 kg heavier than the coupe, but at the same time it was 20 kg lighter than the previous modification due to the new transmission. From zero to hundred Aston Martin V12 Vantage S roadster accelerates in 4.1 seconds, and its top speed reaches 323 km / h. The coupe is slightly faster in both sprint (3.9 sec) and top speed (330 km / h).
In addition, the car received a mechatronic chassis with adjustable Bilstein dampers, which has three modes of operation (Normal, Sport and Track), carbon-ceramic brakes, an exhaust system from the One-77 supercar, and Servotronic variable-force steering.
Sales of the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster started in the fourth quarter of 2014 simultaneously in all markets. In Russia, car deliveries are carried out only on order. Pricing starts at 254,000 euros, but additional options and a personalization program from the Q division can easily increase the price tag by a few million more rubles.
