Here is a convertible version of an Aston Martin sports car. It is called the Vantage Roadster, and you’ll be able to deploy this to buffet your hair into hilarious styles from Spring 2020.

Aston has released these four initial images of the engineering prototype ahead of the car’s launch next year, in order to showcase how pretty the little Aston will look. Job done, we’d proffer.
