Aston Martin is a famous producer of low-volume and high-performance sports car that was founded in 1913 by Robert Bamford and Lionel Martin. In 2018, Aston released its least expensive model, the Aston Martin Vantage.
The Vantage was in direct competition with the Porsche 911, Jaguar F-type and Audi R8. The sport car runs on a 4.0-liter, twin turbo V8 delivering 505 lb-ft of torque.
The Aston Martin Vantage Volante is the convertible version of the coupe, released a couple of years after. It has the same AMG-based engine, producing 503 hp. The car rocketed from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 and its top speed was 190 mph. The cabrio Vantage is was also known for its folding roof which was the quickest to pack and unpack, in only 13.5 seconds. It can also be operated at speeds up to 50 km/h.
Talking about the roadster’s design, the biggest difference between the coupe and the cabrio is the front grille, which was previously used on older models, Aston calling it the “vane” grille. Of course, the B and C pillars have disappeared, while the A-pillar and the windshield are raked more toward the back.
The rear of the cabrio remained pretty much identical to the coupe. Inside the cabin, while the two-seat layout and the dashboard remained the same as in the coupe, everything else was redesigned to make it look more modern.
