Robb Report Limited Edition Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster

Robb Report Limited Edition Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster

When it comes to special edition luxury cars, the name Neiman Marcus usually rings a bell. However, this time ‘round, the guys at luxury lifestyle magazine Robb Report have managed to get their hands on a small run of custom Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadsters.

As if the svelte roadster wasn’t special enough, Robb Report, in collaboration with Aston Martin, has seen fit to create a version of its airy two-seater that takes exclusivity to new heights. Created to mark the car’s strong performance in this year’s Best of the Best judging, only seven examples will be produced, each with a unique build plate starting from “001” and ending with the ultra-cool “007”.

All seven cars will also feature a striking triple-black color scheme--body, roof, and interior--as well as some unique chrome and glossy black wood veneer trim elements. There’s also a three-spoke steering wheel borrowed from the V-12-powered DBS flagship and a bespoke luggage set designed exclusively for the Robb Report cars.

Under the hood remains the 420 horsepower 4.7-liter V-8 engine from the standard Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster, which you can read about in our review by clicking here. Matched to a paddle-actuated six-speed automatic Sport Shift Transmission, the all-black roadster will hit 60 mph from rest in just 4.7 seconds and reach a top speed in excess of 180 mph.

The Robb Report Limited Edition V8 Vantage Roadster is available for special order through Aston Martin dealers and is priced from $153,000.
