V8 Vantage S Roadster

Race-bred pedigree with extra power and torque

Built for pure driving enjoyment, the "Sport" edition of the V8 Vantage Roadster offers a fiercer performance and more muscular looks than the original. The most humdrum of journeys is enlivened by its pace and handling, along with the accompanying roar of the 4.7-litre V8 engine.

The fine detailing of the interior includes standard features such as embroidered "Vantage S" seats and carpet logos and an iridium silver centre console with graphite inner finish. Electronically adjustable seats with memory settings enable you to find the most comfortable seating position, with the full-grain leather cushioning you from the S Roadster’s firm suspension.

Overview

Aston Martin V8 Vantage S Roadster

At 1690kg, the V8 Vantage S Roadster is the lightest convertible in the Aston Martin range. Although strengthening the structure of the vehicle to compensate for the loss of the roof has made it 80kg heavier than its S Coupé counterpart, any compromise in performance has been kept to a minimum. The Roadster and the S Coupé share the same maximum speed of 190mph and 0-60mph of under 4 seconds.

The soft-top roof opens and closes in 18 seconds at speeds of up to 30mph. Importantly, it does not disrupt the proportions of the car or make it unattractively bulky at the rear. The leather-trimmed buttresses on the rear deck highlight its low stance, as well as housing the anti-roll bars. When raised, the roof effectively cuts out intrusive noise.

Technology

Aston Martin V8 Vantage S Roadster

Steering in the S Roadster is precise and responsive. It is possible to change from one lock to the other with 2.6 turns of the wheel, as opposed to the 3.1 turns in the conventional Vantage Roadster. Selecting "Sport Mode" increases the speed of the gear changes and the throttle response – as well as the bracing noise from the V8.

Power is distributed through the seven-speed, automated manual Sportdrive™ II transmission. This system was developed especially for the Vantage S Coupé and Roadster with the motorsport engineers Prodrive, and enables gear changes a fifth quicker than the original Sportdrive™. The vehicle’s brakes have also been reworked for greater stopping power, with the front brake discs enlarged to 380mm compared to 355mm on the original V8 Vantage Roadster.

Built for pure driving enjoyment, the "Sport" edition of the V8 Vantage Roadster offers a fiercer performance and more muscular looks than the original. The most humdrum of journeys is enlivened by its pace and handling, along with the accompanying roar of the 4.7-litre V8 engine.

2016 model upgrades include the updated AMi II Infotainment system which offers improved driver interface controls with additional vehicle information. Updates also include the introduction of a new style fascia, this stylish one-piece console now flows through the centre of the car, offering a more useable interface for both the driver and the passenger.
