Following the introduction of the all new grand touring coupe last year, Aston Martin has introduced a convertible, the DB11 Volante – and it’s gorgeous.
We tested the coupe last year and were sincerely impressed by its brilliant design and exceptional performance. According to the company, the DB11 Volante fulfils all of the brand promises of power, beauty, and craftsmanship, and given how impressive the coupe drives, we don’t doubt it.
The DB11 Volante is being introduced with Aston Martin’s new 503 brake horsepower, 5.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V8, sourced from technical partner Mercedes-AMG. Power is fed through an eight-speed transaxle to the rear wheels. A limited slip differential and torque vectoring will impress even the most jaded supercar pilots.
The new convertible roof is a fully powered, eight-layer fabric top that promises to keep weather out and road noise to a minimum. The roof lowers at speeds of up to 50 km/h in fourteen seconds, raises in sixteen seconds, and is controlled by a console switch, as well as the remote. The cool factor is high with the DB11 Volante.
Deliveries begin in spring 2018 and expect Canadian pricing to start in the mid-$200s.
