Aston Martin has always delighted us with its cars for sale in Abu Dhabi and here is another one of its marvels: the 2021 Aston Martin Vantage Roadster. This Vantage is a combination of jaw-dropping good looks, plush interior, a powerful engine and now a even a convertible rooftop. CarSwitch.com gives you the complete update.

The most notable part of this Roadster is that it has the fastest operating roof compared to any convertible available at the moment. The automaker claims that the Z-fold soft-top folds itself neatly in only 6.7 seconds while going back up in only 6.8 seconds at a speed of 31mph. The drop-top version carries 1,628kg of dry weight which is only 60kg (132 pounds) more than that of its coupe version. 

Powertrain

The Vantage Roadster packs the energetic 4.0L turbocharged V8 sourced from AMG, same as the coupe version and it churns out 503 hp and 505 lb-ft of torque. It is paired with an 8-speed ZF automatic box. Sadly, unlike the Aston Martin Vantage with a 7-speed manual, there is no manual transmission with this one yet. This one can go from 0-60mph in 3.9 seconds, topping off at 190mph. 

It shares many attributes with its coupe sibling such as its aluminium structure, torque vectoring, dynamic stability control, electronic rear differential and adaptive damping. However, these along with the chassis have been tweaked as per the needs of the car. It additionally also comes with an ESP map and bespoke rear damper. Similarly, it features three driving modes: Sport, Sport+ and Track.

Visually, it remains pretty much the same thing. Although, commemorating 7 years of the Vantage nameplate, there is an optional ‘vane’ grille. This grille gives off a more curvy and softer look similar to the limited edition Zagato. It is offered as an option for both the coupe and the roadster. 

The starting price for the new Aston Martin Vantage Roadster is $161,000. Deliveries are expected to start later this year however we have no news on when it will be available among cars for sale in Abu Dhabi. Not to worry, CarSwitch.com has a variety of cars that are just a tap away!
