Power is sent to the wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission and in terms of performance Aston Martin claims that the 0 to 62 mph sprint time will be dispatched in 4.5 seconds while the vehicle’s top speed is 190 mph.

We put the 2012 Geneva Motor Show on hold for a second because we need to tell you about Vath’s tuning program for the 2012 Mercedes SLK 350.

The program is dubbed the R172 and it enhances Mercedes’s new small roadster via ‘delicate adjustment’ of the V35 engine electronics and increase of the Vmax. These methods enable the 3.5-litre engine fitted on the SLK 350 to produce 330 HP (230 kW) and 390 Nm of torque, while the car’s new top speed is 269 Km/h.

The new Lotus Exige S Roadster is among the many new models being exhibited at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show these days.

The car is described as “more raw than a Japanese tasting menu” and it combines the open air driving experience with the power produced by a supercharged 3.5-litre V6 engine, (in this case we are talking about 350 PS and 400 Nm of torque).

Last year in February, the Germans from Hamann were introducing their ‘Hawk’ upgrade package for the gullwing version Mercedes SLS AMG. Now, with less than one day left before the 2012 Geneva Motor Show kicks off, the tuner is presenting pretty much the same range of enhancements for the Roadster version.

This time the German specialist has played with a different colour (red), and has limited the usage of carbon fiber at the back to only the rear wing, while other than that everything else is almost the same, meaning a wind tunnel shaped body kit, a carbon fiber bonnet, a stainless steel exhaust system, 21 inch light metal rims and also a host of interior modifications.

Carlsson has already informed us about their power packs for the 2012 Mercedes SLK, but since the 2012 Geneva Motor Show is right around the corner, they have announced yet another performance kit dubbed the CB25 S.

This kit is part of the tuner’s “Plug-and-Drive Series” and along with a larger intercooler and a flow-optimised, stainless steel muffler it enables a new output figure of 176 kW (239 BHP).

Other than that the vehicle which will be exhibited in Geneva will feature Carlsson’s comprehensive list of exterior and interior upgrades, and to mention just a few, on the outside the German roadster features a custom spoiler with a carbon fiber front spoiler lip, a front grille that uses electro-polished stainless steel instead of plastic, a rear skirt insert, a new diffuser and a small spoiler that helps increase downforce.

British automotive journalists have started testing the Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster. Some of them, like Autocar for example, judge the car in comparison with the Gullwing version, others, like the ones from EVO appreciate it for what it is without attempting to suggest that you should prefer one over the other.

Just like on the hard-top model, power on this Roadster version comes from a 6.3-litre V8 that sends 563 horsepower and 650 Nm of torque to the wheels via a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. The Brits appreciate the fact that Mercedes did a great job in making the Roadster stiffer in order to compensate for the missing roof, with Autocar even claiming that the soft-top convertible is slightly better than the Gullwing version.
