There is definitely a good reason to feel the hype and vibe of the newest Aston Martin DB11 Volante, which is no doubt one of the best looking convertibles you can find in the market right now.
Joining the newer model powered by AMG V8 and the DB11 powered by V12 that was launched the previous year, the third member of DB11 family comes with a fabric roof, and you can choose from the different options include grey silver, black silver, and Bordeaux red.
Its soft top comes with new insulation and acoustic materials, and roof cossets of 8 layers that can keep the riders safe from the unpleasant weather and wind noise. It only takes a mere 14 seconds to lower the top and 16 seconds for raising it, and you can operate it at speeds of as much as 31 miles per hour.
The maker promises that this new mechanism to the roof will be as reliable as you want it to be after they tested it in special weather conditions to the extremes, in which it got subjected to over 100,000 cycles, which compressed a decade of use into one month. All in all, the DB11 Volannte got punished in numerous locations all over the world, including the Arctic Circle and Death Valley.
However, don’t ever think that Aston Martin DB11 Volante is nothing but a pretty face. This has also been based on the aluminum platform of its fixed roof siblings. It makes it much lighter and even more rigid compared to its predecessor and at the same time, it also benefits from the 20% gain in boot volume.
The real action takes place under the hood of Aston Martin DB11 Volante, with AMG’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine taking the center stage and developing 510PS and 695Nm of torque. This lump works hand in hand with 8-speed automatic gearbox, electric power steering, and limited slip differential complete with dynamic torque vectoring.
