As the name suggests, the Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster is for car owners who love a robust sports car with graceful looks and raw performance. A push of the start button sends the engine roaring into action, and out on the road, you'll enjoy the commanding yet refined ride that only an Aston Martin can deliver. The new Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster can be discovered in more detail at Lancaster Aston Martin dealerships in Cambridgeshire and Kent.
As with the Coupé, the Roadster comes with multiple airbags, electronic brake force distribution technology, stability control and ABS, so there's added peace of mind when you're driving this luxury sports car.
An optional tracking system can be fitted for added peace of mind.
The V8 Vantage Roadster sits low on the road and the styling is simple, with defined wheel arches to house the large, wide alloy wheels, and it is nicely balanced whether the top is up or down. The athletic design houses a classic interior that features the best quality materials and finishes, and the intuitive dash sets all the car's functions within easy reach. The V8 Vantage Roadster's fabric roof can be raised or lowered at speeds of up to 30mph, and takes just 18 seconds to transfer you from a cosy, well-insulated cabin to the thrill of open-air driving.
The 4.3-litre V8 engine powers from 0-60mph in 4.7 seconds, thanks to 420bhp and a six-speed manual gearbox – available as a conventional stick shift or paddle-operated. This is easily kept under control as a result of the accurate and weighty steering, and the taut double-wishbone suspension that gives an unmistakably sporty ride. As with most Aston Martins, the V8 Vantage Roadster is built from carbon fibre panels, meaning it's lightweight and agile, and delivers impressive acceleration and confident cornering.
