The Lagonda revival, One-77 supercar and V12-powered Vantage were not the only vehicles that Aston Martin debuted at the Geneva Motor Show. Last but certainly not least was the DBS Volante which is a sans top version of the legendary James Bond car. The new Volante convertible is equipped with the same 6 liter V12 engine as the standard DBS, because why mess with near-perfection? The new Volante delivers 510 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque to its 6-speed rear-mounted gearbox, in either standard manual shift or in sequential Touchtronic. The topless DBS version does zero to 60 in 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 191 miles per hour. The drop top is soft to keep weight down and performance driving on par, retracting in 14 seconds at up to 30 miles per hour. Bang & Olufsen’s BeoSound DBS audio system is standard and has been retuned for the Volante. The 2010 DBS Volante convertible was just launched in Miami, obviously.
Consumers now have another option when it comes to high-end, luxury British convertibles, the jaw-dropping drop top Aston Martin DBS Volante. “The DBS Volante delivers the utmost relaxed driving experience with the hood up or down. It combines engineering excellence with design perfection.” Aston Martin’s CEO, Dr. Ulrich Bez, said in a statement. Just because the top has been cut off deosn’t mean the price has been cut down, the Volante is in the neighborhood of $300k. Happy cruising!
