The 2021 Aston Martin Vantage Roadster has just broken cover, and it’s sleeker than ever. This open-top supercar is powered by the same twin-turbocharged 4.0L V8 from the coupe that generates 503 horsepower and 505 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission sending power to the rear wheels. This means it can go from 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds, only 0.2 seconds slower than the coupe, while topping out at 190 mph.
