Introducing Aston Martin’s Vantage Roadster 2020
New Vantage Roadster joins Coupe in Aston Martin’s most driver-focused model line. The Vantage Roadster convertible model delivers a compelling blend of potent performance, outstanding dynamics, and everyday usability. Powered by Aston Martin’s 4.0-litre twin-turbo 510PS/685Nm V8 engine and mated to an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission, Vantage Roadster accelerates from 0-60 mph in just 3.7 second and is capable of 190 mph with the roof raised. Weight increases by just 60 kg compared with the Coupe thanks to a new, lighter Z-fold roof mechanism and optimized exterior and chassis revisions throughout.

Vantage Roadster’s tailored fabric hood features a compact powered Z-fold mechanism that ensures rapid operation (lowered in 6.7 or raised in 6.8 seconds at speeds of up to 50 kmh/31 mph); Vantage Roadster has the fastest full operating cycle of any automatic automotive convertible system.
Aston Martin President and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Andy Palmer, said of the Vantage Roadster: “Open-top Aston Martins are always firm favorites with our customers, so it’s very exciting to introduce the Vantage Roadster. For many, driving with the roof down is the true definition of the sports car experience as it truly brings your senses to life. Vantage has always delivered the purest of thrills, but in Roadster form that adrenaline rush is set to go to the next level.”
The Vantage range starts at $161,000 with first deliveries scheduled for Q2 2020.
