This particular example, above, was seen at the Geneva Motor Show in 2012, finished in Morning Frost White with Spicy Red leather interior. It is also fitted with seven-speed Sportshift II and carbon pack.
Telling the regular Vantage Roadster from the ‘S’ version is not easy, as both are available with a choice of manual or Sportshift II paddle shift transmissions and the same choice of wheel options. The regular car does not have the exclusive stitching on the door cards of the ‘S’, just has a ‘Vantage’ badge on the rear, has slightly less pronounced side sills (especially noticeable at the back of the sill) and the front splitter is not made from carbon fibre unless specified when new. To make doubly sure, the ‘S’ has the AM15 engine, the regular Vantage has the AM14 engine.
The regular V8 Vantage Roadster was discontinued from the range during the summer of 2016.
