Not Even Bond Can Get This Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster
James Bond might have it all -- the good looks, the cool gadgets, the deadly skills of an assassin, the ability to bed any woman he chooses -- but what's one thing he probably won't be getting? This awesome Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster.
Rumored for quite some time now, Motor Authority reports that the Vantage Roadster is no longer a dream, but a reality. Know what else is a reality for those wanting one? They're only going to make 101 of these cars, meaning they've probably already been spoken for before Mr. Bond could have a chance at getting his name on the list.
The Vantage Roadster packs a 6.0-liter V12 with 510 horsepower and 420 lbs of spine-snapping torque. A redesigned rear deck lid, new front end, carbon fiber trim and unique wheels puts this bad boy at around $234,000. No word yet on a Touchtronic automatic transmission, but if you get a car like this in an automatic, you don't deserve to drive it.
While she may not come with rockets, oil slicks or handy machine guns, this V12 Vantage Roadster has more than enough of a wow factor to have you looking just as cool as the world's best secret agent. Too bad you probably can't find one, much less afford it even if you did.
