In 2005, Aston Martin started making the V8 Vantage as a sort of mildly hot sportscar, an alternative to the Porsche 911 and the Jaguar XK. Initially, it was offered with a 4.3-liter V8 which sounded good but wasn't very powerful, making only 380 hp.
From those semi-humble beginnings, the V8 Vantage has evolved into a supercar, thanks to a much bigger 6-liter V12. On May 28, 2013, Aston Martin announced the V12 Vantage S — a sportier version of the V12 Vantage that it replaced.

The engine was developed from the Vanquish, the exhaust from the One-77 and the gearbox is a brand new seven-speed Sportshift III automated manual with paddles. Add to that new ceramic brakes, lighter wheels, adaptive suspension and unique design and you have one jaw-dropping.

Since the Vantage is a hand-build car, there's no reason for them not to carry over the same changes into a Roadster. Just in case the guys at Aston are still undecided if they want to built such a car or not, Theophilus Chin has rendered the V12 Vantage S Roadster in all its glory.

It'd be great if they build it, but it would be even better if they made a brand new car for a change.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
