Aston Martin Announces the New DB11 Volante

It's good for 503 horsepower, and is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, electric power steering, and a limited-slip differential with dynamic torque vectoring.

V8-equipped DB11 coupes are 253 lbs lighter than their V12 counterparts, so choosing to go V8 only for the heavier Volante makes sense. The infotainment system uses the same technology as we saw in the DB11 coupe, and there's the familiar lashings of leather, real metal, and other materials that, if you have the budget, Aston Martin's team will let you customized to your heart's content. Aston Martin today unveiled the new DB11 Volante, and unlike its predecessor, it's V8 only. Plenty of details were kept under wraps but now the elegant convertible has been revealed in full - and it doesn't disappoint, combining the alluring looks of its coupe sibling with a fabric soft top for open-air cruising. The convertible's tailored fabric top will be delivered in bordeaux red, black silver, and grey silver (colors, as always, are Aston Martin's strong suit). The 0-62mph sprint takes 4.1 seconds, with the auto accelerating on to a top speed of 187mph. If you're anxious that the soft top roof won't be as strong as a metal one, Aston Martin went to extreme lengths to test the rigidity of the DB11 Volante's roof mechanism.

The convertible top is an eight-layer fabric deal that drops in 14 and raises in 16 at speeds of up to 31 miles per hour. During the Life Cycle Durability (LCD) test, the roof was put through 100,000 cycles in special weather chambers. Top speed is also identical for both models. Being based on the coupe's aluminum platform, the DB11 Volante is lighter and more rigid than the outgoing DB9 Volante, and also benefits from a 20 percent gain in trunk volume.
