STUD OR DUD? Aston Martin Reveals The V8 Powered DB11 Volante Convertible

Colours other than beige available. Hopefully

He explained there won't be a drop-top V12 DB11 (my favorite), for a good, sporting reason: what weight the V8 shed compared to the V12 the Volante's gains back. 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 updated roof takes 14 seconds to lower and 16 seconds to close. It can be operated with the ignition key at a standstill as well as on the move at up to 31mph.

Thorough testing procedures were conducted in order to extend the lifespan of the fabric roof and minimize wear and tear. Aston says it conducted over 100,000 cycles in weather chambers to simulate 10 years of use in the space of a month.

Aston Martin says the new vehicle is 26kg lighter than the old DB9 Volante model, as well as five percent stiffer, to provide a better ride and handling experience.

While no word has been issued on specific performance figures, the DB11 coupe can complete the sprint from 0-60mph in 3.8 seconds and hit a top speed of 187mph - so expect the Volante to boast similar stats. All DB11s come with an Alcantara suede-fabric headliner, LED headlight, and heated, power-adjustable leather seats with colour-matching door and centre console inserts.

Room for personalisation and options on the DB11 Volante seems endless, with 70 individual options for DB11 Volante customers.

Options include Caithness, Balmoral or Duotone leather finishes, piano black, open-pore ash and satin-chopped carbon dashboard trim details, while seven different designs for the 20-inch alloy wheels are available.

Max Szwaj, Aston's chief technical officer, added: "With the DB11 Volante we have maximised the advantages of the DB11's all-new bonded structure to underpin our new Volante with a structure that's 26kg lighter and five per cent stiffer than its predecessor [the DB9 Volante]".
