Aston Martin Vantage GT12 Roadster, wild, unrestrained and sole


Awesome. Can not describe in another way the Aston Martin Vantage GT12 Roadster

The last of a lineage. That is the Aston Martin Vantage GT12 Roadster. The Gaydon have discovered today, at the Festival of Goodwood, and its appearance could not be more threatening. We are faced with a car unique and special. A one-off that serves as a farewell to the Vantage Roadster, for a new generation that will come soon.

The other day, I saw shoot for the first time, the next Aston Martin Vantage. It was discovered before us a very different picture to the current one. did Not know until the end of next year, to later discover how will be the convertible version, the Roadster. But as of today, we do not have to focus on the future, but in the present.

Taking as a starting point, a Vantage GT3, which was later renamed to GT12 Coupe, the version Roadster has shaped their design and their technique during the past nine months. The result is obvious. But not only is this aesthetic as aggressive and radical, because under that body made almost completely of carbon fiber, it hides a lot of technical and development.


The Vantage has been put on a diet, and therefore many of its parts have been manufactured in carbon fiber

The idea to develop the Vantage GT12 Roadster has been the same as that for the GT3. The best of the best on a technical level. That is why it has taken the V12 maximum power and generic of the Vantage V12 and we have introduced a series of improvements from the competition. The cubicaje is the same, six-liter, but with more power, reaching 600 horses.

developments include an inlet manifold with geometry renovated and is manufactured in magnesium, an exhaust system full of magnesium, a suspension completely reconfigured, and a automatic gearbox of seven-speed Sportshift III that has been set up to provide gear changes are infinitesimal.

The result is obvious. Aston Martin has not chosen to provide specific performance data for the Vantage GT12 Roadster. The truth is that neither matter much, and does not come within the style of the English brand. As we say only one unit has been built, however for those who want to be done with something similar, know that it’s already in the testing phase of an Aston Martin Vantage WG8, what we saw recently rolling in Nüburgring, although until the year that comes will not come.
