Car publication XCAR takes a ride in the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster. Boasting a 6-liter V12 engine launching the speedy roadster to the tune of 565 horsepower, the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster takes an old-school approach to engine size and power compared to its relatively small frame. In the video above XCAR explores several pros to the supercar, such as a newly equipped carbon ceramic brakes, in addition to several cons, which includes a relatively pedestrian top speed of 201 mph. Swerving through the frigid roadways of a British winter, the roadster sports a less rigid performance drive than that of its coupe counterpart in addition to a full and luxurious engine sound mid-drive. Enjoy the video above and head over to XCAR for more.
