Just in time for summer, the Aston Martin V8 Vantage is shedding its top on test runs throughout Great Britain. Expected to hit the market by the end of the year, the vert sports the same 380-hp V8 mated to a six-speed manual found in the Vantage and, besides the soft top, doesn't differ all that much from the coupe. Word on the street is that the official name of the vehicle will be the Aston Martin V8 Roadster.
