The Aston Martin GT12 is already the most course-focused, hardcore variant in the Vantage lineup. Q by Aston Martin has made the GT12 a undersized more special by unveiling a one-off GT12 Roadster at the Goodwood Fete of Speed today.

Thanks to a naturally-aspirated 6.0-liter V12 motor, the brute puts down 592 hp and 461 lb.-ft. of torque. And thanks to a tonnage savings of 330 lbs. over the road-thriving Vantage V12 S, it’s blisteringly quick around a road.

Chopping the roof off of a hardcore track car seems a slight odd, but Q by Aston Martin received a request from a buyer and delivered the vehicle in a nine-month spell. The roadster may share a lot of the same components as the GT12 it’s based off of, but it’s a bespoke machine that most favourite won’t be repeated.

While the GT12 Roadster utilizes the word-for-word V12 engine and seven-speed Sportshift broadcast, changes have been made to the car’s heart. New carbon-fiber body panels barter the GT12 Roadster a menacing look, while changes to the moratorium ensure the lucky owner receives the even so cornering ability as drivers in the coupe unstable.

Thanks to a folding fabric roof and titanium fritter away system, the GT12 Roadster’s V12 will provide a marvelous soundtrack that can’t be rivaled by today’s turbocharged cars. Pricing for the instrument hasn’t been announced, but it’s surely a lot more than the home price of roughly $343,000 for the hard top.

As a one off, the GT12 Roadster last wishes as most likely be garaged for the majority of its entity. However, the vehicle will make its premier – and perhaps only – appearance at the Goodwood Gala day of Speed today.
