Summary:

Aston Martin Vantage Roadster is an attention grabber like every Aston Martin vehicle. Starting price is lower than competitors and it offers more value as well. You will love to drive this roadster on a highway in UK, but running costs are high as expected from a car of this class.

The Aston Martin Vantage has raised enthusiasm among car lovers since its release into the car market; this is not surprising considering the features in this powerful convertible car. With a fabric roof that can be controlled at the touch of a button, taking just about 22 seconds to be in place; the Aston Martin is simply elegant.

The Aston Martin has a great architecture, with a tweaked V8 Vantage structure that increases its spring stiffness, and raises its ride height. One reviewer described it as ‘Aston’s most successful car’. The Roadster is really a convertible to get excited about, and has most of the desirable qualities any car enthusiast would expect to have.

Power and Performance

The Aston Martin Vantage Roadster is a high performance sports car, with lighter weight when compared to its coupe sibling. It can gain speeds of up to 60mph under five seconds. It has a high drag coefficient of 0.35, and you can choose between the six-speed manual gearbox or the normal six speed manual.

While driving, you will love the sound it makes, especially when you keep the hood down. The sound of the engine is rather low when traveling slowly, but the Roadster awakes with a powerful noise once you keep the accelerators depressed.

Interior & Exterior

You experience the awe of Aston Martin when you step into the cabin. The doors are hinged in such a way that they open both outwardly and upwards. The comfort of the soft leather is also cool, gripping your body tightly while driving. The seats have an eight-way electronic adjustment, such that you can have a conventional flat base, or any other positioning that suits you. Whichever way, you’re definitely sure to be comfortable while cruising.

The Vantage with its two-seater cabin provides you with enough of both leg and shoulder room. There is satellite navigation, telephone, cruise control – all of which will cost you some extra cash. Otherwise, you are sure to have the leather seats, a CD multi-changer of six disc as well as alloy wheels of 18-inch. Beautifully, you have the ability to personalize the Roadster with any colour you want.

Safety & Reliability

The Roadster is designed with stability controls and possesses a great electronic brake force that stop the car in good distance – whether the road is dry or wet. The resistance provided is solid. Even though curtain airbags are absent, there are double airbags present both in front and at the sides of the car.

To trace the car when stolen, there is a tracking system in place. Over time, the Roadster has improved in reliability, developing a better build and gradually replacing its former Ford’s switchgear after some initial difficulties. This super car is a reliable car that will not disappoint or let her buyers down.

eBest Cars Verdict

The Aston Martin Vantage Roadster was built as an everyday sports car. Although a bit expensive, and uses up fuel fast; its unique features make it a supercar to be desired.

Aston Martin Vantage Roadster is an attention grabber like every Aston Martin vehicle. Starting price is lower than competitors and it offers more value as well. You will love to drive this roadster on a highway in UK, but running costs are high as expected from a car of this class.
