Aston Martin's New Luxury Convertible Has a Sporty Side

Aston Martin's New Luxury Convertible Has a Sporty Side

Convertible Astons - badged Volantes since the mid '60s - have traditionally accounted for half of all sales and the new DB11 Volante announced today (13 October) is expected to be no different, especially in sunnier countries around the world where gran turismo motoring gets no more glamorous than when behind the wheel of an Aston with its top down.

As with the DB11 coupe, the Volante's power is sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission.

The updated roof takes 14 seconds to lower and 16 seconds to close. The roof can be dropped using the key fob or 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.

The roof was tested to extremes during 100,000 lab-based cycles using special weather chambers to simulate 10 years of use in the harshest environments on the planet in the space of a month.

The new model is created to be lighter and sportier than its predecessor while still adding interior space and comforts that a well-heeled Aston Martin owner may expect.

"The new DB11 Volante captures those qualities perfectly and promises the kind of pleasure and enjoyment that can only come from driving an open-top Aston Martin".

Stock is unchanged at $131.24 (JLL) JLL Announces Details of Third Quarter…
The Firm operates through four business divisions: Americas; Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA); Asia Pacific, and LaSalle. It offers integrated services on a local, regional and global basis to owner, occupier, investor and developer clients.

The 0-100mph dash gets out of the way in 8.8 seconds and the vehicle will go on to a top speed of 187mph.

Standard equipment on the soft-top includes leather interior with Alcantara headlining and new leather door and centre console inserts.

Keyless entry and go, all-round parking sensors, a 360-degree top-down camera and an eight-inch infotainment systems with sat nav are also included in the list price.

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

The Aston Martin DB11 Volante is available from £159,900, which is roughly £15,000 more than an equivalent DB11 V8 coupe.

Aston Martin has pulled the covers off a convertible version of its DB11 grand tourer.
