New Aston Martin 2023 V12 Vantage Roadster, launched the special limited edition model that combines the most powerful and thrilling performance in Vantage history with the freedom and emotional stimulation of open-top driving. -Limited to 249 units worldwide, it is already sold out. Production will start in the third quarter of 2022, with the first deliveries scheduled to start in the fourth quarter of 2022.
The V12 Vantage Roadster’s 5.2-liter DOHC V12 engine with a bank angle of 60 degrees generates a maximum output of 700PS/6500rpm and a maximum torque of 753Nm/5500rpm, with 372PS per ton of vehicle weight and quick gear shifts with a ZF 8-speed AT. Acceleration from 0 to 60 mph (0 to 96 km/h) takes 3.5 seconds, and the maximum speed is 322 km/h. With a rear-wheel drive equipped with a front mid-engine and a mechanical LSD (Limited Slip Differential), it is said to be a model that combines pure driving fun and good balance.
The optimized transmission enables quick shifts and enhances the sense of unity with the driver, while adaptive software in the transmission control system constantly monitors driving conditions and driver input to improve responsiveness and controllability. Provide support.
The suspension hardware is the same as the V12 Vantage, but the adaptive dampers have been specially tuned to maximize dynamics. In addition, in order to achieve the best steering feel and quick response, the steering setting follows the V12 Vantage but has been updated to enhance the dynamism in cornering.
The braking system is also the same as the V12 Vantage, with carbon ceramic brakes (CCB) boasting powerful braking power as standard equipment. 410mm x 38mm front discs with 6-piston calipers and 360mm x 32mm rear discs with 4-piston calipers for significantly increased stopping power and resistance to brake fade at high temperatures, as well as steel brakes. It is said that it also contributes to the reduction of unsprung weight of 23 kg compared.
The style of the V12 Vantage Roadster, which demonstrates amazing performance, is said to have been designed based on the concept of “form follows function”. Specifically, in order to install a suspension that is 40mm wider than the Vantage, it has been widened. . In addition, the newly designed front bumper with a front splitter that extends over the entire body not only generates more downforce but also achieves the effect of adjusting the aerodynamic balance. In addition, cooling performance has been improved by a front grille that has been enlarged by 25% by reviewing the shape and a horseshoe engine vent (horseshoe-shaped exhaust duct) on the bonnet.
The front bumper, clamshell bonnet, front fenders, and side sills are made of carbon fiber to further reduce vehicle weight, while the rear bumper and decklid are made of lightweight composite materials. The newly designed single-piece sill and rear bumper are designed with improved aerodynamics in mind. The rear bumper is integrated with the diffuser, and the exhaust from the center-mounted twin exhaust system further enhances aerodynamics. said to have improved. This exclusive center-mounted twin exhaust system, made from 1mm-thick lightweight stainless steel, not only delivers an exciting sound but is also 7.2kg lighter than the system used on the Vantage Roadster.
Since the airflow under the body floor is precisely controlled, the ideal aerodynamic balance is achieved without the rear wing, so the rear wing is an option. The 21-inch alloy wheels are available in either satin black or satin black diamond-turned finishes, and optional lightweight forged wheels reduce unsprung weight by an additional 8kg. The tires are Michelin Pilot 4S High Performance, 275/35R21 front, and 315/30R21 rear.
As the flagship model of the Vantage series, the interior of the V12 Vantage Roadster uses semi-aniline leather and sports plus seats with embroidered wing logos and perforation patterns are standard equipment. A carbon fiber performance seat with manual 6-way adjustment is also available as an option for those looking for extra support. The seat is said to contribute to a weight reduction of 7.3 kg compared to a normal seat. Customers who purchase a V12 Vantage Roadster can personalize it with Q by Aston Martin, Aston Martin’s bespoke service, from exterior graphics and livery to woven leather interiors. is possible.
While reminiscent of athletes and thoroughbreds, the V12 Vantage Roadster is engineered with systems designed to handle the loads generated by peak performance, and optimized for maximum efficiency with air intake to the engine, overall vehicle, and Designed to maximize airflow around the car and around the vehicle, this car is built for drivers who want the excitement and drama that only an open-top sports car can deliver. In terms of design, this platform gave us the opportunity to modernize the concept we intended, and the resulting V12 Vantage Roadster is a work of art that puts the driver in control.
