Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster coming to Geneva

Aston Martin V12 Vantage

It’s amazing what a company like Aston Martin can do with what essentially amounts to two product families. Discounting the Toyota-built Cygnet and the exclusive One-77, the company’s entire line-up is based around either the Vantage or the DB9. While the latter has also spawned the Virage, the DBS and the Rapide, Aston has also done a lot with the former. There’s the V8 Vantage, the Vantage S, the V12 Vantage and even the exotic V12 Zagato – not to mention countless racing versions.

And then there’s the convertibles. Aston offers open-top versions of just about all of these (save, once again, the Cygnet, One-77 and Rapide). All that’s been missing is a V12 Vantage Roadster, and now word has it that Aston’s got that one in the pipeline for the near future, too.

The formula is pretty simple: taking the mechanical bits from the V12 Vantage coupe and fit the folding fabric roof mechanism from the V8 Vantage Roadster and presto! an open-top twelve-cylinder roadster. And with 510 horsepower on tap, it should make for one heck of a wild ride. We’re told to expect it’s arrival as soon as the Geneva Motor Show this coming March, so stay tuned.
