Aston Martin just took the wraps off its fastest and most powerful convertible — the 2015 V12 Vantage roadster joins the V12 Vantage S coupe. Powered by a naturally-aspirated 565-horspower, 6.0-liter V-12 engine, Aston says the roadster sprints from zero to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds and has a top speed of 201 mph.

The new roadster trades the coupe's aluminum-accented grille design for a carbon fiber one trimmed with black or titanium silver mesh. Aston Martin says the new look maximizes airflow and is inspired by the CC100 Speedster concept and its Vantage racecars. Inside, customers can choose a myriad of bespoke colors, trim, and materials through Aston Martin's Q customization arm.

Aston Martin said the car will arrive in markets around the world later this year; no word yet on a U.S. on-sale date. Check out the gallery below.

Photo Gallery: 100 Years of Dodge

14556513971_db6f3899b5

The Dodge brand just celebrated its 100th anniversary by throwing a party at Meadow Brook Hall, a historic mansion built by the widow of one of the brand's founders in suburban Detroit. The media was invited to see where the brand has been during the last 100 years in preparation for the relaunch of the marque as Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' North American performance brand

Dodge Means Performance: SRT Comes Back to the Fold

On hand were a collection of Dodge's most notable concept cars from the last 20 years, as well as something truly special — another collection of just over two dozen historically significant vehicles from the company's own museum. Vehicles ranged from an original 1915 Dodge Brothers Touring car to a smattering of late '60s/early '70s muscle cars, right up to more modern cars like the latest Charger. Even more remarkable — they were there for journalists to drive on short loops around the mansion's grounds. Have a look through the photo gallery to get a glimpse of some classic Mopars.

2015 Subaru WRX STI Photo Gallery (27 Photos)

2015SubaruWRXSTI

As Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays said in his critique, the 2015 Subaru WRX STI "packs a punch" performance-wise, though some buyers might find its $35,000 starting price a slap in the face. The even-higher-performance version of the high-performance WRX wears a rather dramatic rear wing, 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels and standard Alcantara-covered seats with red-and-black leather bolsters — racier accents above and beyond the regular WRX's quad tailpipes, large fenders and flat-bottom steering wheel.

Photo Gallery: Jaguar F-Type Project 7

Jaguar-f-type-project-7_500

Jaguar has confirmed that it intends to build 250 examples of the 2013 F-Type Project 7 concept car for sale to the public, using its Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations team to handle the assembly of the custom two-seat roadster. Inspired by the 60th anniversary of the LeMans-winning Jaguar D-type race car, the F-Type Project 7 features handmade carbon- fiber aerodynamic aids and a unique suspension, as well as the most powerful engine Jaguar has ever put in a car: a 575-horsepower, supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 mated to an eight- speed automatic transmission. Jaguar says it will propel the Project 7 from zero to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 186 mph, making it the fastest car Jaguar has ever produced.

Several high-performance features will be standard on the Project 7, including carbon- ceramic brakes, a torque vectoring system and race-inspired seats. The only roof will be a stowable fabric strip that stretches from the top of the windshield and accommodates the D-type-inspired fairing behind the driver's head. It will be fully road-legal, however, and even features a trunk that holds 7 cubic feet of luggage.

The first examples of the new Project 7 will be delivered to customers in mid-2015, and it will make its public debut at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex, England on Thursday. Pricing has not yet been announced.
