Sublime New Aston Martin DB11 Volante Unveiled

Aston Martin's New Submarine Is James Bond-Worthy

The infotainment system uses the same technology as we saw in the DB11 coupe, and there's the familiar lashings of leather, real metal, and other materials that, if you have the budget, Aston Martin's team will let you customized to your heart's content. The steering wheel is heated and the fabric roof-made up of eight insulating layers-has been tested to destruction, first in weather chambers and then in Death Valley and around the Arctic Circle.

The Aston Martin DB11 Volante is a drop-top with a V8 leaning instead of a V12.LONDON, Oct 13 -Aston Martin has cut the roof off the DB11 and chopped four cylinders off its engine to create the all-new DB11 Volante, a convertible that it claims has the potential to redefine the open-top sports GT auto market.

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.

The Volante has the coupe's 4-litre twin-turbo V8 under the bonnet, which produces 503bhp and propels the vehicle to 62mph from a standstill in 4.1 seconds.




The AMG-sourced V8 produces 503bhp and 513lb ft of torque, which means it will do 0-62mph in 4.1sec and a top speed of 187mph. It can also be remotely operated from the key or at speeds up to 31 miles per hour. The 0-62mph sprint takes 4.1 seconds, with the auto accelerating on to a top speed of 187mph. Being based on the coupe's aluminum platform, the DB11 Volante is lighter and more rigid than the outgoing DB9 Volante, and also benefits from a 20 percent gain in trunk volume. For reference, the coupe is one tenth quicker to 62 and has the same electronically limited top speed.

Say hello to the latest evolution of Aston Martin's iconic convertible sports GT.

The DB11 Volante is powered by a new 4.0-litre twin-turbo 510PS V8 engine, and is built around the bonded aluminium structure first seen in the DB11 Coupe. "One that combines greater performance and agility with increased comfort, refinement and interior space for occupants and their luggage". "The new DB11 Volante captures those qualities perfectly and promises the kind of pleasure and enjoyment that can only come from driving an open-top Aston Martin", Aston Martin CEO, Dr Andy Palmer.
