You’re all familiar with the giant supercar manufacturers such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, Bugatti, Lotus and Audi, but there are other companies out there that manage to produce stunningly beautiful and quick cars even though they don’t have the prestige of the aforementioned goliaths. Aston Martin, for example, is a brand that’s widely appreciated in the UK, but it could definitely use a boost in popularity everywhere else in the world. Still, Aston Martin cars are known for their elegant looks, luxurious interiors and eye-tearing performance capabilities, and it looks like the British carmaker is set on a path to greatness for the following years, especially if we are to take a look at one of its latest releases.

We’re talking about the Aston Martin 2015 V12 Vantage S Roadster – a car that has everything it takes to play in the major league of supercars as far as we’re concerned. This open top bundle of power and elegance has just 2 seats, which means that its greatness can only be savored by 2 people at a time. Even though it is quite small, this thing packs a hell of a punch once you put your foot down, all thanks to a beastly powertrain based on an AM28 6.0L V12 engine that roars restlessly under its hood. This engine allows the 2015 V12 Vantage S Roadster to perform a sprint to 60mph in just 3.9 seconds, but it could also reach a top speed of 201mph (323km/h) eventually.

With 457 lb-ft of torque and 565 horsepower, this vehicle is officially the fastest-accelerating Aston Roadster ever built, which is high praise considering the fact that most modern Aston Martins are dashingly quick. The power is fed to the rear wheels via a Sportshift III seven-speed automatic transmission. Other high-end features include a three-stage adaptive damping system as well as a two-stage ABS anti-lock system and DSC stability control. Furthermore, the driver is able to choose from 3 different driving modes called Track, Sport, and Normal, which means that the car can adapt to a multitude of driving conditions according to preference.

Even though we have no information regarding the price or the availability of the Aston Martin 2015 V12 Vantage S Roadster, we can tell you that this car definitely deserves a place in your own garage, if not for its great performance but for its comfort, great looks and originality.
