If you have enough money, you can have any car you want. And Aston martin is here to prove that with the introduction of a special and unique car. The UK manufacturer unveiled its most extreme roadster ever in the unique form of the one-off Vantage GT12 Roadster.
A tailor made customer commission undertaken by Q by Aston Martin, the Vantage GT12 Roadster takes the original Vantage GT12 Coupe’s and transforms it into a roadster for a 600 hp V12 soundtrack.
Conceived and delivered within a nine-month period, the Vantage GT12 Roadster draws its origins from the Vantage GT12 Coupe, with a special 600 hp version of the brand’s 6.0-litre normally aspirated V12 engine mated to a seven-speed Sportshift III paddle-shift transmission. Technical highlights include magnesium inlet manifolds with revised geometry, a lightweight magnesium torque tube and a full titanium exhaust system.
The most visible differences are the significant number of new carbon-fibre body panels, while beneath the skin a unique suspension set-up defined by Aston Martin’s in house.
Being a product of Q by Aston Martin, the Roadster also features bespoke paint and trim.
Dr Andy Palmer, Aston Martin President and CEO, commented: “The Vantage GT12 Roadster is a hugely exciting project. Not just because it’s sensational to look at, but because it vividly demonstrates the expanded capabilities of Q by Aston Martin. By incorporating the exceptional engineering capabilities of Aston Martin Advanced Operations within the Q by Aston Martin bespoke commissioning service we have a truly formidable creative team.”
