Aston Martin Vantage GT12 Roadster: Proof That Aston Will Do What You Want If You've Got Cash

Following the super low-volume Aston Martin One-77 and Vulcan, Aston has a new ultra-rare and bespoke model to showcase: the Vantage GT12 Roadster. And before you reach for your checkbook, don’t bother—this is a one off for a very wealthy customer.

Based on the über cool Aston Martin Vantage GT12 Coupe (formerly known as the GT3 until Porsche threw a fit about it) the Roadster is powered by the same 6.0-liter, 600 PS V12 with a seven-speed gearbox.

It has magnesium inlet manifolds and a titanium exhaust system. It took nine months for Aston’s customization service, Q by Aston Martin, to create. Visually, it’s another achingly beautiful Aston Martin. Can you say you expected anything else?

This is the first time that a customer has been able to request such a unique Aston Martin one-off. I can’t even begin to imagine how many zeroes you would need to tack on at the end of a monetary amount to even get something like this started.

I suppose you also purchase the bragging rights, too: “Aston Martin made this for me and only me, blah blah blah.” I hear those are priceless.

Love the exterior. Not a huge fan of the interior, though. The leather-work looks pretty awesome, but I can’t talk myself into that boring dash and console with the minuscule display, or that ugly steering wheel. That steering wheel looks like it was taken off a Dodge Caravan or something. I dunno what it is, I just can’t get into it.
