Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster video review
The Roadster version of the Aston Martin V12 Vantage has been a long time coming. Was it worth the wait? Video review here
Your £150,000 buys an open-top Vantage with Aston's tried and tested 5.9-litre V12 engine shoehorned in the front. That means 510bhp and 420lb ft of torque going to the rear wheels, resulting in a 4.5sec 0-62mph time and a 190mph top speed. It's reassuringly old school, too, with a six-speed manual gearbox rather than a complex two-pedal transmission.
