Is it possible to write a review of the 2021 Aston Martin Vantage Roadster without mentioning James Bond? No, it isn’t, so let’s just get it out of the way. The 2021 Aston Martin Vantage Roadster makes you feel like James Bond.
The brand’s relationship with 007 dates back to the mid-1960s and continues today, as the fictional British spy will once again drive his silver Aston Martin DB5 in the latest Bond flick due out this year. It is, after all, the most famous movie car in history. In many ways, the Vantage Roadster is a spiritual successor to that sexy classic, with its eye-popping beauty, front-engine/rear-wheel drive chassis, and spectacular performance. Built in the United Kingdom, the new 2021 Aston Martin Vantage Roadster is the convertible version of the Vantage Coupe, which debuted in 2019. The two-seater competes in the elite luxury convertible sports car segment, which also includes the Porsche 911, Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster, and Audi R8 Spyder.
