The Aston Martin V8 Vantage S Roadster is a highly desirable car, so it makes sense that it comes with automatic locking retractors and engine immobiliser as standard. A built-in tracking system comes as an optional extra, meaning your vehicle is traceable if it's ever stolen.

The Vantage S Roadster delivers an extra 10bhp in comparison to its non-S counterpart, giving a total of 430bhp.
