Fans of the Aston Martin brand may be encouraged by a new review from motoring journalist Jeremy Clarkson, who says the new V8 Vantage Roadster convertible is "very pretty".
On delivery of the green-coloured model – complete with green interior and matching roof – it was a vehicle one "simply had to buy", he wrote in the Times.
Although it is not as fast as its coupe counterpart, the convertible is comfortable and refined while it "glides" along the roads.
"The first time you see one of these things, roof down, on a sunny day, you’ll know what I’m on about," the Top Gear presenter continued.
According to Aston Martin, the Roadster embodies soul, power and beauty, while incorporating leather sports seats and a hand-trimmed interior.
It also comes equipped with a 4.3-litre engine and a maximum speed of 175 miles per hour.
