Aston Martin's DB11 V8 now available as a convertible

On Friday, Aston Martin unveiled the new DB11 Volante convertible.

The DB11 Volante isn't merely a summer plaything, Aston Martin has fitted a heated steering wheel for colder days of open motoring, and the rear seats even feature Isofix points for fitting child seats. You can also have wood veneer or carbon-fibre finishes for the back of the front seats.

One of the hallmarks of Aston Martin is the V12 engine that many of its cars use.

The DB11 Volante replaces the DB9 Volante and will initially be powered by a 4.0L twin turbocharged V8 that's borrowed from Mercedes-AMG.

The eight-layer convertible fabric roof is available in red, dark silver or grey silver.

The V8's power finds its way to the rear wheels by way of an 8-speed automatic transmission.

The all-new 8-layer hood is created to insulate the occupants from the extremes of weather and wind noise, taking just 14 seconds to lower and 16 to close.

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

"With the DB11 Volante we have maximised the advantages of the DB11's all-new bonded structure to underpin our new Volante with a structure that's 26kg lighter and 5 per cent stiffer than its predecessor". In addition, the new design results in a 20-percent gain in trunk space compared to the outgoing DB9 Volante.

The new Aston Martin DB11 Volante is expected to arrive in showrooms during the summer of 2018 with a starting price of $216,495. With Aston Martin on the trunk lid, you knew the vehicle wasn't going to be cheap.

Aston Martin President and Chief Executive Officer, Dr Andy Palmer said, "For many of our customers, indeed many generations of Aston Martin customer, the Volante has always offered something very special: a unique combination of elegant style, innate sporting ability and sensory engagement that lifts it above other open-top cars".

The £159,900 auto will get its first deliveries in the first quarter of 2018.
