Last Saturday, I already posted about the white V12 Vantage Roadster that was spotted in London by Alex Penfold. At the time, only one photo was available on his Flickr and Facebook page. But in the meantime, more photos have appeared on GTSpirit.com.
I contacted Alex, asking whether I could also post these photos here and he gave me permission to do so.
These new pics really show the beauty of the open-top V12 Vantage, but also the peculiar specification of this particular specimen. Let’s take a look:
In May 2009, rumors flared up about a V12 Vantage Roadster being in the making.
On May 12, some spy shots were posted on WorldCarFans.com, of a car that looked suspiciously like a V12 version of the V8 Vantage Roadster
(or a Roadster edition of the V12 Vantage).
The pics showed a dark-blue Vantage Roadster, clearly sporting several specific V12 Vantage elements: the carbon splitter at the front, the carbon diffuser and the slightly higher spoiler at the rear, the wide and sharp edged sills on the sides.
Everything but the carbon fibre louvres in the bonnet and the V12 specific rims.
Here’s two of the pics posted by WorldCarFans.com
