Here Are More Pictures Of Aston Martin’s 2020 Vantage Roadster (Part II)

Aston Martin is making zero efforts to hide its new Vantage Roadster. In fact, the only stickers on the car are the ones advertising its arrival next spring. Today, our spy photographers took another round of shots of a camo-free prototype driving on public roads in Germany, this one with a sexier set of black alloy rims, which you can check out for yourself below.

Last month, Aston Martin revealed the first photos of the upcoming 2020 Vantage Roadster along with the spring 2020 release date.

Now it’s time to see the drop-top Vantage in action as the prototype recently tackled the Nürburgring Nordschleife as part of its development program. The new model definitely looks in its element at the “Green Hell” and, as you can see, the driver raised the soft top in order to get the most out of the laps.

We don’t have footage of the test run but we’re pretty sure it was accompanied by a thundering V8 sound. While Aston Martin has not released technical specs yet, everyone knows that the 2020 Vantage Roadster will get the same 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 as the Coupe version. Expect base models to come with a standard eight-speed automatic transmission and a rear electronic differential.

On the fixed-roof Vantage, the Mercedes-AMG engine delivers 503 HP (510 PS) and 505 lb-ft (685 Nm) of torque in base specification. That’s enough for a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) acceleration of 3.7 seconds. Given the added weight brought about by the folding roof mechanism and chassis strengthening measures, the Aston Martin Vantage Roadster could be a hint slower than the Coupe.

That won’t matter in the real world, however, as the drop-top Vantage will more than compensate for it with open-air driving thrills and unhindered access to the V8’s soundtrack. As for the looks, we’ll let you decide whether the Roadster will turn more heads than the Coupe or not. One thing is certain, though: it doesn’t look half bad with the top up.
