It’s custom order season again, and this bespoke Aston Martin Vantage GT12 Roadster is the definition of one-of-a-kind luxury.
Undertaken by Q by Aston Martin, it combines the hardcore ethos from the original Vantage GT 12 Coupe with the pleasure of open-top driving. Significantly, this unit will be the only one ever produced.
Introduced at the 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed, it took the Aston Martin team nine months to make the lucky customer’s dream came true. The Vantage GT12 Roadster has a special 592 hp version of the brand’s famous 6.0-litre normally aspirated V12 engine matched to the seven-speed paddle shift gearbox found on the GT12 Coupe. The suspension has been adjusted to provide the characteristics of a roadster. The most significant differences are the new carbon body panels, aggressive diffuser and matching titanium exhaust. Colour choice for the body is a slightly subtle gray, while the interior shares the low-key luxe vibe with bespoke brown leather and black panels. Aston Martin has not announced the price, but then, does it matter? We’re sure there’s one more extremely satisfied Aston Martin aficionado, and that’s what counts.
