Last year, the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S was launched as the firm’s fastest car bar the One-77. Now, the 2015 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster has been released and it is understandably the fastest production convertible ever offered from the British manufacturer.
As you can see from the video above the car looks and sounds phenomenal, removing the roof will also mean that the glorious V12 will be able to be enjoyed without a roof to deaden the sound.
Under the hood, the car features the same engine as the V12 Vantage S coupe. That is an uprated version of the normally-aspirated 5.9-liter V12 AM28 engine which is actually the fifth generation of Aston Martin’s 5.9-liter V12 engine. In 2015 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster guise, this powerplant delivers a total of 565 hp therefore matching the power produced by the 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish from the same engine. This horsepower figure then represents a 55 hp gain over the regular Aston Martin V12 Vantage. As a result of this power and torque, the 2015 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster will hit 100 km/h from a standstill in a mere 4.0 seconds with an impressive top speed of 323 km/h (201 mph) possible.
