Recently, British car brand Aston Martin released a convertible version of the Aston Martin Vantage sports car to the public. This attractive Roadster version will be on display at the booth of the Geneva Motorshow 2020 car exhibition taking place early next month.
The Aston Martin Vantage Roadster is equipped with a fabric roof that can open and close automatically. According to information released from Aston Martin, Vantage Roadster takes only 6.7 seconds to open / close the hood when the car is stationary and 6.8 seconds when the car is moving at 50km / h. This makes the Aston Martin Vantage Roadster the fastest automatic roof-opening car among other convertibles in the world.
Compared with the coupe version, Vantage Roadster does not have too many structural differences. With a Z-shaped roof open design and light braces on the car, the Aston Martin Vantage Roadster weighs only about 60kg heavier than the coupe.
The Aston Martin Vantage Roadster uses a 4.0-liter V8 engine developed and produced by Mercedes-AMG, similar to the engine equipped on the coupe version of this model. This engine is capable of producing 503 horsepower and maximum torque of 685 Nm, on par with the DB11. This power is transmitted to the rear wheel of the car via an 8-speed ZF gearbox, so the car is capable of accelerating to 100 km / h in 3.7 seconds, about 0.2 seconds slower than the coupe version. . Vantage Roadster version can reach a maximum speed of up to 306km / h.
The car features the same adaptive damping, dynamic stability control, dynamic torque vectors, and electronic rear differentials like a coupe, with drive modes options like Sport, Sport +. and the Track provides a boost to the vehicle’s responsiveness and excitement. That is why the Roadster can meet many different needs of the driver such as daily commuting or operating on the track with a real speed experience.
According to the company, starting prices for the Aston Martin Vantage Roadster start at £ 126,950 in the UK, € 157,300 in the German market and $ 161,000 when sold in the US.
