2023 Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster: The Ultimate Convertible Driving Experience

Aston Martin introduces the new V12 Vantage Roadster, an exceptionally exciting and ultra-exclusive limited production model that combines the exhilarating performance of its most powerful Vantage with the sensory stimulation and freedom of open-top driving.

Production is strictly limited to just 249 customer examples worldwide, all of which sold out even before launch. The V12 Vantage Roadster features a captivating combination of dramatic wide-body design, ground-hugging wide-track suspension, and a first-time inclusion for a Vantage Roadster: the mighty 5.2-liter Twin-Turbo V12 engine.

With blistering straight-line speed and the unfiltered roar of Aston Martin’s sonorous 700PS 12-cylinder engine, the V12 Vantage Roadster takes the open-top driving experience to an exhilarating new level. The engine’s power plant is a key factor in this exciting driving experience.

Generating 700PS at 6,500rpm and 753Nm of torque at 5,500rpm, the 5.2-litre 60-degree V12 with four cams is a true force of nature. With a power-to-weight ratio of 372PS-per-tonne and consistently impressive delivery that combines effortless running response with epic acceleration, every press on the V12 Vantage Roadster’s accelerator unleashes an unforgettable adrenaline rush.


With lightning-fast 0-60 mph acceleration in just 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 200 mph, the V12 Vantage Roadster is at the pinnacle of open-top sports car performance. Equipped with a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission and a rear-mounted mechanical Limited-Slip Differential (LSD), this car exhibits the purity and balance of a front-mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout.An optimized transmission calibration ensures quick shifts and maximizes driver interaction, while adaptive software in the transmission control system monitors operating conditions and driver demands, improving driver’s sense of response and control. Like the V12 Vantage, the V12 Vantage Roadster comes standard with powerful Carbon Ceramic Brakes (CCBs). The front discs measure 410mm x 38mm and are held in place by 6-piston calipers, while the rear discs, which measure 360mm x 32mm, are paired with 4-piston calipers.

These carbon ceramic brakes provide significantly increased stopping power and excellent resistance to brake fade at high temperatures. In addition, CCB technology contributes to a substantial weight saving of 23kg compared to steel brakes, benefiting steering response and ride quality. Sharing the same suspension hardware as the V12 Vantage, the V12 Vantage Roadster features a custom tune to its adaptive dampers, ensuring their dynamics are honed to deliver an incredibly sharp and responsive driving experience.


Roberto Fedeli, Aston Martin Technical Director, said: “We have gone to great lengths to ensure that the V12 Vantage Roadster embodies the same power and dynamism that the V12 Vantage is known for, while surpassing it in terms of sheer sensory excitement.” that he only experiments with driving with the top open. With more power and torque than any Vantage Roadster before it, a wide-track chassis with precisely tuned suspension tuning, and up to ten times the downforce of the production Vantage Roadster, this impressive machine is built for our most enthusiastic customers.”Marek Reichman, Creative Director of Aston Martin, adds: “From a design perspective, the V12 Vantage Roadster represents a combination of living sculpture and physiology, much like the functions of an elite racer or thoroughbred racehorse. For one, just as its systems are developed to handle the stresses of peak performance and trained to work together to increase efficiency and power using oxygen, the V12 Vantage Roadster was designed to maximize the benefits of airflow inside, along long and around the car.”


To further reduce overall weight, the V12 Vantage Roadster features carbon fiber on the front bumper, bonnet clamshell, front fenders and side sills, while the rear bumper and boot lid are made from materials light compounds. Plus, a lightweight battery and specially designed mid-mounted dual-exit exhaust system made from lightweight 1mm stainless steel contribute to additional savings.Tuned to produce an enthusiastic sound to match its striking appearance, the V12 Vantage Roadster’s aerodynamic performance is also evident in its newly sculpted one-piece sills and rear bumper, which feature an integrated diffuser. The effectiveness of the diffuser is enhanced by routing the centrally mounted dual tailpipe exhaust system.

Unlike the V12 Vantage, the V12 Vantage Roadster doesn’t come with the spectacular rear wing as standard, although it can be specified as an option. This design choice highlights the roadster’s focus on monster performance, where striking form is driven by function.

For example, the wide-body design is essential to accommodate the wide-track suspension, which is 40mm wider than the standard Vantage. The redesigned front bumper, with a full-width front splitter, generates additional downforce and improved aerodynamic balance. Additionally, improved cooling is achieved through a 25% larger reshaped front grille and “horseshoe” shaped engine vent on the hood.


The final visual touches on the Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster come in the form of stunning 21-inch alloy wheels, available in two finishes: Satin Black or Diamond Turned Satin Black. In addition, customers can opt for lightweight forged wheels in satin black or satin black diamond-turned, saving an additional 8kg of unsprung mass. Standard equipment on all wheels are high-performance Michelin Pilot 4S tires: 275/35 R21 at the front and 315/30 R21 at the rear.Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster customers can further enhance the exclusivity of their car by enlisting the services of the brand’s bespoke personalization service, Q by Aston Martin, which offers striking exterior graphics, liveries and woven leather options.

With extensive use of exposed carbon fiber in its design, the V12 Vantage Roadster is a perfect fit for Q by Aston Martin – the Commission’s range of tinted lacquers that change appearance under different lighting conditions, creating a dramatic carbon feature. put by hand fiber panels

As the flagship of the Vantage range, the V12 Roadster features Sports Plus seats trimmed in full semi-aniline leather, with ‘Wings’ quilting and perforation pattern as standard. For those looking for the ultimate dynamic design and maximum support for high performance driving, an optional carbon fiber performance seat with an exposed twill carbon fiber shell and 6-way manual adjustment is available, saving 7 3 kg without compromising the comfort of the occupants.
