The Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster is a development of the
2005 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Coupe, however
because the Roadster was developed alongside the hardtop version,
the car loses nothing in performance and dynamic ability.
Underneath the V8 Vantage Roadster's bodywork lies the same
380 horsepower alloy V8. Transmission options for the Roadster
include a conventional, yet slick, 6 speed manual, or Aston
Martin's new paddle-operated Sportshift automated manual transmission.
