2012 Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster


With new inner panels
forward of the front
bulkhead, Aston Martin
shoehorned their ‘DBS’ V12
engine into the much
smaller Vantage platform.
Production of the Roadster
came three years into V12
Vantage production.
Press Release
Aston Martin is lifting the lid
on an extreme new sports
car with the global debut of
the V12 Vantage Roadster.
The new sports car,
available as a limited
edition in selected markets
worldwide, immediately
becomes the most potent
example of the open-top
Vantage range and mixes
the breath-taking power of
Aston Martin’s naturally
aspirated 6.0-litre V12
engine with the established
thrills of Vantage Roadster
driving for what is an
unforgettable sports car
experience.
The V12 Vantage
Roadster’s 6.0-litre engine,
mated as in the Coupe to a
six-speed manual gearbox,
generates
517 PS at 6,500
rpm and a muscular 570 Nm
of torque at 5,750 rpm. It
has been intelligently
packaged into the Vantage
Roadster’s compact form to
fully exploit the sports-
orientated model’s ample
natural agility.
The naturally-aspirated
V12 provides high levels of
power
and torque yet it
delivers a flexible, refined
driving experience
illuminated with the potential
for
truly electrifying
performance. The 0-62 mph
sprint is dispatched in just
4.5 seconds while this most
potent Aston Martin
Roadster is capable of 190
mph.
While the Roadster
naturally shares much of
the technical and
specification features of the
V12
Vantage Coupe, some
elements are redesigned to
take account of the
Roadster’s neat packaging
and engaging dynamics.
The V12 Vantage Roadster
features a redesigned rear
boot lid and lower front air
intake to maintain a level of
dynamic performance that’s
fully in keeping with the
V12 Coupe, while there are
also a number of unique
chassis revisions. These
include a modified rear
damper set-up, front and
rear damper valve tuning
and a new rear spring
design.
These changes, in
conjunction with Aston
Martin’s use of Pirelli P
Zero Corsa tyres, ensure
the sports car delivers
dramatic straight-line
performance as well as
outstanding handling.
Styled to be as beautiful as
it is potent, the new
Roadster boasts a number
of eye-catching additions
that underline its sporty
characteristics. Carbon
fibre side strakes; a
carbon fibre front splitter
and rear diffuser; carbon
fibre mirror caps and
carbon fibre rear lamp
infills – plus the new forged
alloy wheel design – should
leave the sports car
cognoscenti in no doubt
that this is a truly
exclusive Aston Martin.
At the rear, the boot lid on
the V12 Vantage Roadster
incorporates a more
pronounced ‘flip’ to reduce
rear lift and improve
stability at high speeds.
The V12’s diffuser houses
a large, centre-mounted oil
cooler and two large tail-
pipe finishers.
As with the front splitter,
the carbon fibre rear
diffuser is hand-made to
ensure the direction and
consistency of the weave
and ensure the best
possible finish.
Inside, there are other
distinguishing features that
make the new car stand out
from its illustrious siblings
in the sought-after Aston
Martin V8 Vantage and V12
Vantage line-up. Subtle
additions such as the use
of glass switches in the
lower centre stack elevate
yet further the luxurious
ambience in the V12
Vantage Roadster cabin.
While for those seeking the
ultimate in V12 Vantage
Roadster personalisation, a
package of interior trim
comprising carbon fibre
facia and carbon fibre
gearshift surround is
available.
Unique to the V12 Vantage
and new V12 Vantage
Roadster is the engine’s
“Sport” mode button, which
enables the driver to select
between
two different
powertrain modes.
Normal mode is the default
from start-up and provides
not only a more relaxed
throttle response but also
a quieter, more refined
exhaust note. This creates
a more progressive throttle
response,
suited to
‘everyday’ situations such
as when driving in heavy
traffic.
Sport mode, meanwhile, is
designed for use in more
dynamic driving situations
where sharper responses
are required. It has a
number of tangible effects
on the powertrain including
a sharper throttle
response, with the engine
delivering more torque
during the early stages of
throttle pedal travel.
Exhaust system bypass
valves are also kept open
for longer to create a
particularly sporty exhaust
note.
Aston Martin Chief
Executive Officer Dr Ulrich
Bez said: “The V12
Vantage models are, first
and foremost, driver’s cars
– inviting and fully
rewarding the driver’s full
involvement.
“The addition to our range
of this exceptional new
Roadster allows the driver
and passenger to
experience full ‘sensory
overload’ thanks to its
outstanding performance.”
He added: “I believe no
other car in this class
offers the combination of
the V12 Vantage
Roadster’s prestige, six-
speed manual gearbox and
the unique enjoyment that
driving a high performance
convertible can deliverAston martin
