As announced in May 2008 alongside the coupe, the V8 Vantage Roadster also received the revised 4.7 litre V8 and the DBS inspired centre console complete with the 'ECU' glass and steel device in place of the key. Whilst many photographs below were taken at the Aston Martin Hospitality facility erected during Le Mans 2008, first deliveries of the production 4.7 MY2009 car were during the third quarter of 2008.

Below are also images of a MY2010 V8 Vantage Roadster shown at the 2010 Geneva Salon. This example had the ‘new for 2010’ lightweight forged 10 spoke diamond turned wheels. For the 2012MY, in line with the Virage, the car adopted the Garmin sat-nav and ‘beam blade’ wiper design, although these cars are quite rare as the new V8 Vantage MY2012.25 was introduced a few months after the first MY2012 cars entered production.
