The new Aston Martin V12 Vantage is sure to please those who love a small car with a really big engine. But for those who love a small car with a really big engine on which they can drop the top and enjoy some sun, Aston Martin is working on a new V12 Vantage Roadster.
According to the latest round of spy shots from vehicles testing at the Nurburgring, a rag-top Vantage Roadster was one of them. Spies said that there is no doubt that the sound coming from under the hood is that of a V12 engine. If and when the V12 Vantage Roadster makes it into production, it will without a doubt carry the same 6.0L V12 from the coupe making 510-hp and 420 lb-ft of torque.
With Aston Martin making just 1,000 units of the V12 Vantage Coupe, sources say that production of the V12 Vantage Roadster will be limited to 500. Look out for a Sept. debut at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show.
