This is the 510bhp, 190mph Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster; the hottest version of the open-top Vantage range, yet.
Powered by a 6.0-litre V12 – as found in the V12 Vantage Coupe and DBS models – the £150,000 Roadster generates 420lb ft of torque at 5750rpm and can blast from 0-62mph 4.5 seconds.
The V12 Vantage Roadster gets a modified suspension system, and, like the coupe, features a 'Sport' mode button that sharpens throttle response and makes the exhaust louder.
Cosmetic changes over the coupe include a redesigned bootlid, a lower front air intake, and 19-inch alloys. There are also carbonfibre side strakes, a carbonfibre front splitter and rear diffuser, carbonfibre mirror caps and carbonfibre rear lamp infill.

Buyers can specify an optional interior trim package, which adds a carbonfibre fascia and gearshift surround.
