Aston Martin: Vantage, hair blowing in the wind

Aston Martin is to present its Vantage Roadster at the GIMS 2020.

Few convertible divas can retract their roof in 7 seconds; the Aston Martin Vantage Roadster is among their number. Its soft top folds down electrically at lightning speed, even when the car is travelling at up to 50 km/h.
The simple, compact system also has the advantage of preserving the curvaceous lines of the Vantage and indeed makes it even more desirable than before. Only the boot comes off worse, losing 150 litres by reducing carrying capacity from 350 to 200 litres.

As is logical, the engine is identical to the Coupé, being a twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 originating from Mercedes-AMG, developing 510 hp and a maximum torque of 685 Nm. The engine is connected to an 8-speed automatic gearbox. Top speed is 306 km/h, achieving 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds (3.7 seconds and 314 km/h for the Coupé).

Compared to the Coupé, the Roadster is 60 kg heavier. Some adjustments have been made, particularly to the rear shock-absorbers and the ESP setting. The Roadster still offers Dynamic Select with a choice of 3 drive modes: Sport, Sport+ and Track.

The appearance of the Roadster in the Vantage range coincides with the appearance of new options. Instead of the catfish-style “Hunter” grille, the front now comes with softer lines and a traditional vane grille.
Nostalgia for the manual gearbox is given full rein! This transmission system, which a few months ago was the prerogative of the limited Vantage AMR series, now makes its appearance in the options catalogue of the Coupé.

The Aston Martin Vantage Roadster will make its public debut at the GIMS from 5 to 15 March 2020.
