Aston Martin will globally debut its 2015 V12 Vantage S Roadster and the carmaker’s Design Prototype 100 (DP-100) will make its North American debut during the Pebble Beach Automotive Week beginning August 14.
The V12 Vantage S Roadster is equipped with the latest 565 horsepower Aston Martin AM28 6.0-liter V12 engine. It features state-of-the-art Bosch engine management, which allows the car to reach 201 mph and accelerate 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds.
When it arrives in markets around the world later this year the new sports car will become the luxury British marque’s most potent, fastest and fastest-accelerating series production roadster to date.
Developed in-house by the Design team at Aston Martin, DP-100 Vision Gran Turismo is a new, virtual-only GT racer that is available for Gran Turismo 6 (GT6™) owners to download and will be shown as a full-size hand-crafted model at Monterey this month.
The DP-100 will be exclusively available for viewings to customers and invited guests at the Aston Martin Estate, Aug. 14-16.
The V12 Vantage S Roadster will lead the marque’s presence at Quail: A Motorsports Gathering on August 15.
