Aston Martin lifts the lid on the one-off Vantage GT12 Roadster
The Vantage GT12 Roadster is essentially a convertible variant of the competition-inspired GT12 Coupé, with (rather understated) bespoke paintwork and trim. Conceived and delivered within a nine-month period, Aston Martin CEO Dr. Andy Palmer says the commission is significant in that it’s the first project to benefit from the incorporation of Aston Martin Advanced Operations – the division previously responsible for low-volume specials such as the One-77, Vulcan and Lagonda Taraf – into the Q department. Initially offered as a means of providing personalised colour and trim combinations, the Q service has been continually expanded, and is now able to take on full-scale design and engineering projects.
