Bespoke Aston Martin Vantage GT12 Roadster Breaks Cover

Written By:

Aston Martin's GT12 coupe is their most radical road going car. So it may seem a bit weird that an Aston customer wanted to lop the roof of the car.

However, the request didn't put off Aston's bespoke Q division, who did exactly that and took the big wing off to create the brilliant and extremely loud one-off Aston Martin Vantage GT12 Roadster.

To create this bespoke beauty, Q division ripped off the coupe's roof and replaced it with a fabric roof. The Vantage GT12  is painted in a very stealthy grey which compliments the carbon fibre pieces like the vents on the bonnet and the air vents, front splitter and madcap diffusor at the rear.

Power comes from Aston's old 6-litre V12 which pumps out  595bhp and 625Nm of torque. All of that power and torque is sent to the rear wheels through a 7-speed automatic gearbox.

You'll be able to hear all the noise that 12-cylinder engine makes thanks to a custom titanium exhaust which should dial the noise up to 11.

To ensure that the bespoke Roadster does not wobble about because of the loss of the roof, Aston Martin has tweaked the suspension to compensate for the lack of a solid roof.

Aston Martin made a total of 100 GT12 coupe's and only this grey one will lose its roof as the customer has paid quite a premium over the £250,000 (Rs. 2.27 Crore) price tag of the coupe.
