Aston Martin's New Luxury Convertible Has a Sporty Side

Aston Martin's New Luxury Convertible Has a Sporty Side”

This is the new Aston Martin DB11 Volante, a stunning convertible sibling for the DB11 coupe.

Aston's new DB11 convertible - arrives to plug the gap for refined GT motoring in a DB, and it comes with only the option of the 4.0 litre AMG V8 - so no V12 version, at least not for now.

Max Szwaj, Aston's chief technical officer, added: "With the DB11 Volante we have maximised the advantages of the DB11's all-new bonded structure to underpin our new Volante with a structure that's 26kg lighter and five per cent stiffer than its predecessor [the DB9 Volante]". The top also stows into a smaller space for more trunk room.

While no word has been issued on specific performance figures, the DB11 coupe can complete the sprint from 0-60mph in 3.8 seconds and hit a top speed of 187mph - so expect the Volante to boast similar stats.

Aston has stuck with a folding fabric roof for the Volante, which takes 14 seconds to fold - electrically, of course - and can go up or down at speeds up to 31mph - so plenty of opportunity for High Street posing.

Aston Martin is known for doing personalisation rather well and if you hand the company's Q department enough money, you can indulge your imagination for as long as your cash will last. That is the same price as the V12 coupe. First deliveries are expected in the first quarter of 2018.

The all-new 8-layer hood is created to insulate the occupants from the extremes of weather and wind noise, taking just 14 seconds to lower and 16 to close.
