New £247k DBS Volante is Aston Martin’s fastest-ever convertible

Aston Martin has revealed a new convertible version of the DBS Superleggera grand tourer. Arriving in the UK at the end of the summer, the Volante is set to carry a £247,500 price tag.

As with the coupe, the DBS Volante’s 5.2-litre V12 engine produces a whopping 715bhp and takes the car to 211mph. That’s enough to make the newbie Aston Martin’s fastest convertible ever. But even so, it won’t accelerate as quickly as its hard-top brethren. The sprint to 62mph takes two tenths longer, at 3.6 seconds, and 0-100mph takes 0.3 seconds longer, at 6.7 seconds.

But Aston Martin claims the DBS Volante is all about mixing performance and aesthetics with the drama of an open-top sports car. To that end, the DBS features four huge exhaust pipes and an aerodynamic package that provides a massive 177kg of downforce at top speed.

Inside, the cabin is largely similar to that of the coupe, with posh leather, a squared-off steering wheel and carbon-fibre trim. When the roof is raised – an electronic process that takes 16 seconds – insulation is designed to give it as quiet a cabin as a coupe, while customisable trim adds the personal touch.

Aston’s executive vice-president and chief creative officer, Marek Reichman, said: “The DBS Superleggera produces a spectacular and relentless level of performance. So for the Volante, we focussed on bringing the sensory overload that only an open-top super-GT can deliver. With the unique dynamics, beautiful yet brutish design and the unmistakable harmonics of Aston Martin’s 5.2-litre V12 engine, we believe we have delivered a unique and unforgettable driving experience that is synonymous with the traditions of the Volante name.”

    I simply desired to say thanks again. I am not sure the things that I would have used without the actual thoughts provided by you about such a subject. It was actually a real terrifying scenario for me personally, but coming across a new expert form you managed the issue forced me to leap with gladness. I am just grateful for your assistance and then wish you find out what a powerful job you are providing educating the rest through your web page. Most likely you’ve never met any of us.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    I do enjoy the manner in which you have framed this matter plus it does indeed present us some fodder for consideration. However, because of just what I have personally seen, I basically wish when the actual commentary stack on that people remain on point and in no way get started upon a tirade of some other news of the day. Yet, thank you for this outstanding piece and although I can not really agree with this in totality, I respect your standpoint.
