Aston Martin always builds beautiful cars, and the all-new 2021 Aston Martin Vantage Roadster is another stunning example from Gaydon. Making its official debut a couple of years after its coupe counterpart, the drop-top version of the UK brand’s so-called “entry-level” sports car has arrived. Just don’t call 503 horsepower entry-level because it’s not.
The Aston Martin Vantage and the new Vantage Roadster do cost less than the larger Aston Martin DB11 and Aston Martin DBS Superleggera but still offer a thrilling driving experience. The new Vantage Roadster removes the coupe’s fixed roof in place of a fabric roof; folding hardtops are heavy, mechanically complicated, and pricier.
Aston Martin claims the new Vantage Roadster “amplifies” everything about the coupe by still offering a wonderful blend of serious performance, excellent driving dynamics, and everyday usability.
