Well-known four-litre Biturbo V8
The sister model to the Vantage Coupé naturally shares its genes.
- So also the four-litre Biturbo V8 engine, which produces 510 hp and 685 Nm torque.
- The drive torque flows exclusively to the rear wheels via a ZF eight-speed automatic.
- Despite an additional weight of 60 kilograms compared to the coupé, the roadster is to accelerate from zero to 100 km / h in 3.8 seconds.
- If necessary, the crew can let the wind blow through their hair at up to 306 km / h.
Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster
From zero to one hundred in less than seven seconds
It may be but the Aston Martin Vantage offers a meaner, more direct and far more punchy driving experience. If the Aston Martin DB series cars are built for the gentlemen, this is built for his unruly child. Exquisite looks and elegant interiors are a mainstay of Aston Martin but the Vantage offers something more. Something altogether more directed at the driver within.
Aston Martin puts the Vantage Roadster on the road. The two-seater is 510 hp and completely defoliated in under seven seconds.
Nobody is faster than the new Aston Martin Vantage Roadster. At least when it comes to opening the fully automatic soft top. At least that’s what the British say and give a time of fewer than seven seconds for the transformation. Otherwise, the open Brit, which is called Vantage Roadster and not Vantage Volante, is sporty.
The extra pounds result from structural stiffening measures. The open Vantage should be just as torsionally rigid as the coupe. Accordingly, the chassis with the adaptive dampers from the coupe was adopted. The roadster also features the electronically controlled limited-slip differential and the torque vectoring control. However, the vehicle dynamics control systems have been recalibrated for convertible use. The Sport, Sport + and Track driving modes are also on board.
Back to the top with a Z-fold. From close to up it is fully automatic in 6.7 seconds. It takes 6.8 seconds to close the hood. The roof sprint is feasible at speeds of up to 50 km / h. Since the soft top hugs behind the seats, the trunk volume always remains unchanged at 200 litres. Sufficient for the mandatory golf equipment that is obviously always carried in such cars.
New options for the 70th
The launch of the Aston Martin Vantage Roadster also marks the 70th anniversary of the Vantage series. Accordingly, Aston is introducing new features. The Vantage models are also optionally available with a new radiator grille and various new alloy wheels. The optional manual seven-speed gearbox is reserved for the Vantage Coupé.
The Aston Martin Vantage Roadster will go on sale at the beginning of the second quarter of 2020. In Germany, the British are hanging a price tag of EUR 157,300 on the roof.
