This Is The Breathtakingly Beautiful, V8-Powered Aston Martin DB11 Volante

This Is The Breathtakingly Beautiful, V8-Powered Aston Martin DB11 Volante

It's being offered with a Mercedes-sourced 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 503bhp and drives the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

The overall design and styling of the convertible mimics the coupe, except for the fabric roof of course. Torque is 513lb ft and the vehicle produces 255g/km CO2.

Equipment levels are pretty similar to the Coupe too, with leather, heated seats, parking sensors, 360-degree surround view, heated steering wheel and new wood or carbon fibre panels on the seat backs. Fitting the DB11 Volante with the heavier V12 wouldn't have been practical, since converting the coupe into a droptop will have already added extra weight. More usable rear seats, for the first time with ISOFIX points for child seats, more room, more comfort and more refinement, plus the quality and electronics re-invention ushered in by the DB11, are all evident here. The soft top can be lowered in 14 seconds or raised in 16 seconds at speeds up to 31 miles per hour. The new hood design also results in a 20% larger boot capacity than the outgoing DB9 Volante. The convertible roof also features acoustic and insulation materials and new eight-layer cossets to protect occupants from extreme weather and drown out wind noise.

Aston Martin has lifted the lid off its attractive DB11 (last year's 'Design of the Year' victor at the T3 Awards) and, as a result, created the most lovely vehicle we've ever seen.

It's a pretty flawless date to drop the second trailer for the nine new episodes that will come out on Friday, Oct. 27. With it will come new threats to Hawkins, Indiana and the world in the form of the mysterious shadow monster.

"With the DB11 Volante we have maximized the advantages of the DB11's all-new bonded structure to underpin our new Volante with a structure that's 26kg lighter and 5% stiffer than its predecessor [the DB9 Volante]".

Aston Martin President and Chief Executive Officer, Dr Andy Palmer said, "For many of our customers, indeed many generations of Aston Martin customer, the Volante has always offered something very special: a unique combination of elegant style, innate sporting ability and sensory engagement that lifts it above other open-top cars".

"The result is a truly magnificent vehicle".

Deliveries of the Aston Martin DB11 Volante in the USA are scheduled to begin during the second quarter of 2018 and will be priced from $220,385 including destination.
