Aston Martinâ€™s new 2015 V12 Vantage S Roadster will make its global debut as part of the marqueâ€™s presence at the Pebble Beach Automotive Week. Providing the most visceral yet engaging open-top experience in Aston Martinâ€™s current range, the new V12 Vantage S Roadster delivers characteristic sporting agility underpinned by an enviable sports â€˜soundtrackâ€™ generated by its naturally aspirated V12 engine and expertly-tuned sports exhaust.
Equipped with the latest 565 bhp Aston Martin AM28 6.0-liter V12 engine, featuring state-of-the-art Bosch engine management, the car is capable of reaching 201 mph and sprinting from rest to 60 mph in only 3.9 seconds. When it arrives in markets around the world later this year the new sports car will become the luxury British marqueâ€™s most potent, fastest and fastest-accelerating series production roadster to date and follows in the broad tire tracks of the V12 Vantage S Coupe that was launched to worldwide acclaim in 2013.
Developed in-house by the Design team at Aston Martin, DP-100 Vision Gran Turismo is a new, virtual-only GT racer that is available for Gran TurismoÂ®6 (GT6TM) owners to download and will be shown as a full-size hand-crafted model at Monterey this month.
Starting with nothing but a blank sheet of paper the design team and design engineers worked for six months to create the new addition to the Vision Gran Turismo stable of race cars. Clearly pushing the boundaries of what an Aston Martin could be, DP-100 not only looks beautiful but also boasts a high degree of engineering integrity. A twin-turbo V12 mid-engined racer, DP-100 offers up to 800bhp, endowing it with blistering performance fully in keeping with the high octane nature of the game.
