- Aston Martin DB11 Volante comes with a soft top roof
- The Volante features the same design as the DB11 coupe
- It'spowered by the Mercedes-AMG-sourced 4.0-litre biturbo V8
The Aston Martin DB11 Volante is only available with the brand's Mercedes-AMG-sourced 4.0-litre biturbo V8. Similar to the coupe, the engine produces 503 bhp and develops 675 Nm of peak torque. There's an eight-speed automatic gearbox which pushes all that power to the rear wheels, and a standard limited-slip differential improves traction. The drop top can do a 0-100km/h sprint in just 4.1 seconds while topping out at 300 kmph. The convertible is a tenth of a second slower to 100 kmph and has the same maximum velocity as the V8-powered coupe.
"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 26 kg (57 lb) lighter and 5 per cent stiffer than its predecessor," Max Szwaj, Aston Martin Chief Technical Officer, said in the model's announcement.
The Volante features the same design as the DB11 coupe, except for the folding soft top. It's available in bordeaux red, black, silver or grey silver. A standard Alcantara headliner on the inside creates a more luxurious cabin. If the weather changes suddenly, the roof can close in 16 seconds.
Inside, the DB11 Volante gets a trim matching the centre stack and now covers the upper portions of the seat backs. Buyers can choose finishes like Piano Black, Light Ash Open, Dyed Tamo Ask Open Pore, Satin Chopped Carbon, or Satin 2x2 Twill Carbon. The convertible comes with full-grain leather upholstery and heated seats as standard. Ventilated seats are available as an optional extra.
The DB11 Volante gets an eight-inch infotainment system with navigation, and customers can upgrade the sound system to a 13-speaker setup from Bang & Olufsen. For the first time ever in an Aston Martin Volante model, the rear seat has ISOFIX attachment points, so owners with toddlers can strap them into the back for a safe ride. The trunk is also 20 percent larger than the outgoing DB9 Volante, so there's plenty of room for luggage too
While the bookings for the Aston Martin DB11 Volante have already started, deliveries of the car will only begin by mid-2018.
