Aston V12 Vantage S Coming Next?

Rendering

Following the release of the new 565-horsepower V12 Vantage S coupe, it's pretty safe to assume Aston Martin will do a Roadster version next.

There’s been a clear progression over the years in Aston Martin’s Vantage range. The V8 Vantage came out in coupe form in 2005, which was followed by the Roadster in 2006. Late in 2007, Aston revealed the V12 Vantage RS concept, which went into production in 2009, which in turn was followed by the V12 Vantage Roadster just last year. The latest (and most powerful) version of the model line yet – the V12 Vantage S – was just released the other day, but it hasn’t taken long for anticipation to begin building for the most powerful drop-top Vantage to follow.

Depicted here by our favorite rendering artist Theophilus Chin, the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster would pack the same 6.0-liter V12 as the V12 Vantage S coupe (and the Vanquish, for that matter), driving 565 horsepower to the rear wheels through the company’s new seven-speed, single-clutch sequential transmission. The weight penalty involved in strengthening the chassis for open-roofedness (as demonstrated on the existing Vantage Roadster models) would make it a bit slower, but for some, the wind-in-your-hair (and, let’s face it, the look-at-me) factor would more than make up for it.
