Aston Martin Creates Bespoke Roadster Version Of The Vantage GT12

Limited to only 100 units, exotic car enthusiasts will be lucky to see a 2016 Aston Martin Vantage GT12. The lightweight Vantage GT12 essentially a racecar for the road, having been stripped of some of the high-end amenities Aston Martin is famous for. The 6.0 L V-12 puts out 592 HP and weighs 220-lbs. less than the standard V12 Vantage. This equates to a 0-62MPH time of 3.7 seconds and a top speed of an incredible 185 MPH top speed. But occasionally, a car collector calls up Aston Martin to see how far they can take their personalization.


One of One: For when One of One Hundred Is Not Enough


Over a period of nine months, the Q Division from Aston Martin was contacted by a wealthy collector to make a drop-top version of their Vantage GT12, the Vantage GT12 Roadster. While Aston Martin will not disclose who the lucky car collector is or how much they paid their Q Division to turn his Vantage GT12 into a bespoke convertible with a power-retractable soft-top. Instead, Aston Martin would rather use the Vantage GT12 Roadster to display how truly capable their Q Division is when it comes to making their client’s dreams become a reality.
