Does the Aston Martin Vantage Roadster have the desirability of its coupé sibling?

When a car sounds as good as the Aston Martin Vantage coupé, a convertible version is something that we are genetically obliged to get excited about.

We had to wait a year and a half after the introduction of the coupé, but this didn't dampen our enthusiasm for it one bit.

The Aston Martin Vantage is Aston’s most successful car ever

And despite the apparent wait, the roadster had actually always been on the cards since the inception of the V8 Aston Martin Vantage, which quickly became Aston’s most successful car ever. Rightly so. The range was joined by the sportier V8 S and the naturally aspirated 6.0-litre V12 S.

In our Aston Martin Vantage coupé review we said we could understand entirely if you chose a V8 Aston Martin Vantage over a Porsche 911.

Question is, does the roadster have all the desirability of the coupé?
