Shortly after debuting its ultra-rare DBR22, Aston Martin has now followed up with the unveiling of a new Vantage Roadster that packs the automaker's 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 engine. With the upgrade, the new drop-top model can push out 555 pound-feet of torque that combines with its 690 horsepower to give it a 0-60 mph time of just 3.5 seconds and a top speed of a whopping 200 mph.
Increased power output also means other performance enhancements to keep things in control, which include carbon body components across its clamshell hood, front fenders and sills as well as a composite rear bumper and deck lid. You'll find Carbon Ceramic Brakes that come standard, stainless steel twin-exit exhausts, and a redesigned front splitter and front grille to further improve aerodynamics and airflow intake to the V12.
There's currently no pricing information just yet for the new Vantage Roadster V12, but Aston Martin expects deliveries to begin before the end of the year.
