Aston Martin Vantage was the fastest in… folding roof

A convertible version of the British supercar is officially presented.

Formally, this Roadster was announced last spring, and the first photo showed in the autumn, but only now it became repetitive. And the novelty has already available for order.

Aston Martin Vantage Roadster is equipped with the same Mercedes four-liter V8 510 HP and 685 Nm, and coupe, which debuted in the fall of 2017. Compared with the model with the fixed roof weight increased by 60 kg, acceleration to 100 km/h increased from 3.7 to 3.8 seconds and a top speed dropped from 314 to 305 km/h. But the soft cloth top is automatically lowered and raised for 6.7 for 6.8 seconds at speeds up to 50 km/h: the manufacturer claims that it is a record. The trunk of the Roadster holds 200 litres – enough, for example, large bag of Golf clubs and related accessories.

Along with the premiere of Roadster Aston Martin has slightly updated the rest of the family. So, both models are available with alternative grille and a new set of alloy wheels. In addition, the seven-speed mechanics, previously offered only for limited Vantage AMR, is now available for regular coupe instead of vosmidiapazonnoy automatic.

In the U.S., a refreshed Vantage with a stationary top and a “handle” will cost you 146 thousand dollars, and a brand new Roadster – 161 thousand. The first buyers will receive the car in the third quarter of this year.
