Hypothesis: A 200 mph Aston Martin roadster will be one of the sexiest things in life.

Aston Martin just made pretty much all of your dreams come true by announcing the imminent arrival of the V12 Vantage S Roadster. The short version? It's a 200 mph roadster based on the V12 Vantage S. Yes, they're kinda literal when it comes to naming their cars. The long version is where it gets interesting...
 

Under what Aston calls a bonnet but is really a hood, the six liter V12 pumps out 565 hp, and has plenty of torque to match. What does that mean? Your ears will be orgasming in as little time as it takes the car to hit 60 mph (3.9 seconds).

Naturally, the car's suspension and engine mapping are adjustable, so you can go from nice and comfy on the highway, to peppy on the back roads, to downright beastly out on the track.

As a bonus, Aston Martin is opening up its Q-division to this car so you can get any and everything on it that you could want...except, sadly, anything that Bond's Q would do.

They produced a car porn-laden, 90-second video explaining the car, too. It's worth a look.
