Purists could be shocked to discover that this drop-top is propelled forward by a V8 rather than a velvety smooth V12, but the eight-cylinder 4-liter twin-turbocharged block in question comes courtesy of Mercedes-AMG. The convertible sports vehicle benefits from three-stage powertrain and chassis modes, working in flawless harmony with the eight-speed automatic transmission, electric power steering, and limited-slip differential with dynamic torque vectoring.
It naturally rides on the same all-new bonded aluminum structure underpinning the DB11 Coupe, making it lighter and more rigid than the model it replaces. The trade-off for such a sleek top-down profile is perhaps less of the coupe's contemporary design character - there's no equivalent of the floating roof arches here.
The fabric hood is an eight-layer job available in red, black-silver or grey-silver.
With a sticker price of $216,000, United States buyers should expect to see the Volante in showrooms in early to mid 2018.
China's trade with North Korea slumps as nuclear sanctions start to bite
Imports rose 18.7%, exceeding estimates with the fastest growth since March, to result in a trade surplus of $28.5 billion. The customs agency said it will publish details its trade in specific products with North Korea on Oct 23.
Like the coupe, the V8 unit sends 503 horsepower and 513 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic. It takes just 14 seconds to lower and 16 to close, and can be operated remotely from the key or at speeds up to 31 miles per hour.
The interior has new features too, including wood or carbon fiber veneer panels on the seat backs.
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.
The new Aston Martin DB11 Volante has been officially launched.
Sergio Aguero returns to training just 11 days after vehicle crash
Manchester City ace Sergio Aguero admits wearing his seat belt saved him after his vehicle accident in Amsterdam last month. I want to be certain and not have pain.
Aston Martin has lifted the lid off its handsome DB11 (last year's 'Design of the Year' victor at the T3 Awards) and, as a result, created the most lovely auto we've ever seen. The auto was also taken out to harsh real-world environments in Death Valley and the Arctic Circle for testing.
Deliveries of the Aston Martin DB11 Volante in the US are scheduled to begin during the second quarter of 2018 and will be priced from $220,385 including destination.
The new model is created to be lighter and sportier than its predecessor while still adding interior space and comforts that a well-heeled Aston Martin owner may expect.
