One of the most striking (and polarizing) design features of the Aston Martin DB11 is its so-called floating roof - that odd C-pillar treatment that some love and some love to hate.
DB11 Volante development prototypes were put on test in locations including Death Valley and the Arctic Circle.
"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". The newest DB11 is powered by a 4.0L V8 turbo engine generating 503 hp. The 0-62mph sprint takes 4.1 seconds, with the vehicle accelerating on to a top speed of 187mph.
The AMG-sourced V8 produces 503bhp and 513lb ft of torque, which means it will do 0-62mph in 4.1sec and a top speed of 187mph. It can be operated both from inside the cabin and remotely, from the key fob, and the automaker says that its new folding mechanism makes for a 20-percent larger trunk than the old DB9 Volante this vehicle replaces.
The stunning drop-top was put through more than 100,000 test cycles in special weather chambers created to simulate the conditions of the harshest environments in the world. That makes the Volante only a tenth slower to 60 than the coupe, and their top speeds are identical.
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. It's around 57 pounds lighter than its predecessor, the DB9 Volante, and boasts 20 percent more cargo room with the updated hood system.
Say hello to the latest evolution of Aston Martin's iconic convertible sports GT.
But the maker would have us believe it's a whole lot more: It's 26kg lighter and five percent stiffer than the convertible DB9 it replaces, thanks to the all-new bonded aluminium structure it shares with the coupé. "One that combines greater performance and agility with increased comfort, refinement and interior space for occupants and their luggage". In the United Kingdom, the DB11 Volante sells for £159,900. From what we can see, Aston Martin has another stunner in its growing line-up.
