Word on the street is that Aston Martin will introduce a V12 Vantage Roadster at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in March.
Power for the Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster is expected to come from the same V12 in the coupe. The 6.0 liter V12 engine is good for 510-hp with a maximum torque of 420 lb-ft. That gives the coupe the ability to go from 0 to 62 mph in 4.2 seconds with a top speed of 190 mph. Of course, those figures are likely to change for the Roadster.
In other Aston news, CEO De. Ulrich Bez has apparently confirmed that the DBS replacement is in the works and could produce more than 600-hp.
