The 2021 Aston Martin Vantage Roadster has just been presented prior to its public premiere at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
The automaker late on Tuesday revealed the new generation of its Vantage Roadster, which arrives at dealers in the third quarter of 2020 as a 2021 model.
Power comes from the same 4.0-liter AMG-sourced V-8 as in the regular Vantage producing 503 hp and 505 lb-ft of torque. Drive is dispatched to the rear axle through an eight-speed automatic, we’re told there are no plans to offer the roadster with the manual option available on the coupe. It delivers 0-60 mph acceleration in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 190 mph.

The drop-top Vantage has been a long time coming and features a fabric top that can be lowered in just 6.7 seconds when the car is stationary or in 6.8 seconds at speeds of up to 31 mph (50 km/h). This makes it the fastest folding automatic soft-top in the industry.
The Roadster features the same adaptive damping, dynamic stability control, dynamic torque vectoring, and electronic rear differential as the coupe, with Sport, Sport+, and Track options available for the chassis set-up.
The 2021 Aston Martin Vantage is available to order and is priced from $146,000 for the coupe and $161,000 for the convertible.
