Aston Martin – 2013 V12 Vantage Roadster

Forget about the sexy exterior with all the carbon fiber components for a minute while I explain what’s under the hood of the 2013 Vantage Roadster by Aston Martin. Simply put, it’s power. This dapper ride possesses a 6.0 liter V12 motor that produces 510 hp and 430 lb/ft of face-scrunching torque. When you step on the pedal of this bad boy you’ll be able to travel from 0-60 mph in just 4.5 seconds with a max speed of 190 mph. All this power is regulated by the driver who has to select a performance mode of either “Normal” or “Roadster.” In “Normal” mode you’ll get a relaxed and quiet drive, while in “Roadster” you can expect the ultimate dynamic response. All this added muscle required Aston Martin to include a modified rear damper setup, damper valve tuning, and a new rear spring design. Couple that with the Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires that come stock with the vehicle and you can guarantee this roadster will fly! The car will only be available in selected markets with a confirmed price tag of $233,000 USD.
