  • Aston Martin DB11 Volante unveiled

Aston Martin has cut the roof off the DB11 and chopped four cylinders off its engine to create the all-new DB11 Volante, a convertible that it claims has the potential to redefine the open-top sports GT vehicle market.

Mechanically the DB11 Volante is essentially the same as the Coupe, which means a bonded aluminium structure, rear-wheel drive, limited slip diff and eight-speed auto 'box, with the V8 delivering 503bhp.

All these elements are said to improve the performance and handling of the vehicle in a multitude of weather conditions. A new addition to the DB11's bag of tricks is the use of wood veneer on the Volante's seat backs.

Then there's the convertible's tailored fabric top that comes in bordeaux red, black silver, and grey silver.

Say hello to the latest evolution of Aston Martin's iconic convertible sports GT.

According to Aston Martin's announcement this morning, the roof takes 14 seconds to lower and 16 seconds to close, and can be moved at speeds of up to 31 miles per hour with a 31 mph headwind. More usable rear seats, for the first time with ISOFIX points for child seats, more room, more comfort and more refinement, plus the quality and electronics re-invention ushered in by the DB11, are all evident here.
