2012 ASTON MARTIN V12 VANTAGE ROADSTER - MANUAL – 010 OF 101
With spring in the air and the motoring season about to explode into action, a welcome new arrival to our stock list is this sensational V12 Vantage Roadster.
Combining the stunning handling characteristics of the Vantage chassis and performance from Aston Martin’s V12 engine, with the thrill of roof down motoring, the V12 Roadster was an instant sales success when launched in 2012 with the limited run of just 101 cars, for worldwide consumption, being quickly sold.
In 2012, the price of the basic V12 Vantage Roadster was £150,000 although personalisation options would have taken the purchase price beyond this point. The 510 bhp V12 engine, driven through the 6-speed manual gearbox, powered the V12 Vantage Roadster to 190mph, with 0-60mph being achieved in just 4.1 seconds.
It is with great delight that we are now able to offer this superb, enthusiast owned and much cherished 2013 model year example, number 10 of the 101 production cars built, of which just 42 were UK right hand drive specification.
Finished in Volcano Red over Obsidian Black hides with silver stitch with a Black convertible hood. In addition to standard V12 Vantage Roadster specifications, notable optional extras include Aston Martin premium Audio, Black brake calipers, Carbon Interior pack (fascia panel, centre console, door pulls, gear stick surround and door sills), bright finish front grille, Carbon fibre wing mirror covers and rear light infills, switchable exhaust, front parking sensors, heated Sport seats, red seat belts and a convertible wind deflector. The car also benefits from having the secondary Cat replacement pipes fitted.
Supplied when new in November 2012 and purchased by its 2nd and last keeper in 2017, an enthusiast of the marque and serial Aston Martin owner. The car presents in excellent order, with only the lightest evidence of use and our pre-sale inspection confirms that the car is in superb mechanical condition throughout. Servicing has been carried out, annually, by Aston Martin main agents including its last scheduled service in August 2020 by AM Works. The car is protected by PPF in the most vulnerable areas and rides on new Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres, appreciated as offering improved performance than the OEM fitted Pirelli tyres.
Accompanying the car is a custom fit Aston Martin car cover, overmats and one of the most comprehensive history files we have seen for a vehicle of this age!
Following an increasing admiration and demand for the V12 Vantage model in general, the exclusive and limited V12 Vantage Roadster is rare to market and highly sought after by both enthusiasts of the marque and ‘drivers’ alike who appreciate the, no longer available, aesthetic and performance characteristics, the model offers.
Available for viewing and demonstration now at our Hertfordshire showrooms.
