The new DBS Superleggera Volante combines three iconic nameplates, and is the second Aston Martin to carry the Volante name following the introduction of the company’s Second Century Plan.
The authentic sound produced by the car’s powertrain is a striking feature of the Volante experience, only convertible cars featuring the iconic Aston Martin wings badge are honoured with the Volante name. The defining feature of any Volante is its roof.
Featuring a 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 engine producing 715BHP and 900Nm of torque. Reaching 0-62mph in 3.6 seconds and 0-100mph in 6.7 seconds, with a top speed of 211mph boasting fierce acceleration.
Executive Vice President & Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman said: “DBS Superleggera produces a spectacular and relentless level of performance and so for the Volante, we focussed on bringing that extra level of sensory overload that only an open-top Super GT can deliver inside the cabin. 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.”
With a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission and quad exhaust system, dynamic driving models include GT, Sport, Sport Plus.
The hood is available in eight striking colours including Atlantic Blue, Bordeaux Red and Titan Grey, whilst the roof opens in 14 seconds and closes in 16, with the ability to operate it from inside or using a remote key within a two-metre radius of the car. The folded roof has a class-leading stack height of 260mm.
Aston Martin Lagonda President and Group CEO, Dr Andy Palmer, said of the DBS Superleggera Volante: “There is nothing on earth that compares to the roar of an Aston Martin V12 and I believe that the DBS Superleggera Volante provides one of the greatest sensory experiences in the automotive world. This is truly a testament to the no compromise approach of our engineers and designers, to deliver the two key aspects of a convertible Super GT. Exceptional performance in an irresistible form, DBS Superleggera has justifiably won the hearts and minds of Super GT lovers the world over, and the Volante takes this concept to the next level”.
