2011 Aston Martin V12 VantageEnlarge Photo
Yesterday we showed you the photo excerpts from our recent test drive of the Aston Martin Vantage. The V-8 version of the car's pretty thrilling--but there's more to come from the British marque in short order, even as it launches its One-77 supercar and the upcoming Aston Rapide four-door.
The V-12 version of the Aston Vantage showed up at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, and now Clinton's crew at WorldCarFans brings you a pic of the V-12 Vantage roadster that's set for a fall debut at the Frankfurt auto show.
Stuffed to the gills with V-12 goodness, the roadster shares the same 6.0-liter V-12 engine with the hardtop and the same 500-horsepower-plus power output. A six-speed manual will send the V-12 ragtop to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds on the way to a 190-mph top end.
More than you can handle? Stay with us: next month there's word of a DBS roadster, and this fall we'll bring you more highlights from the Frankfurt show.
