While no mention has been made of a DB11 V12 Volante, this engine is offered with the coupe, so it's likely to follow in due course. Aston Martin today unveiled the new DB11 Volante, and unlike its predecessor, it's V8 only. Its lines are stronger yet more elegant because they're not being visually disrupted by a roof, while very smart touches of craftsmanship such as the wooden veneer that adorns the seat backs and which is plain for all to see each time the fabric roof is down add a subtle touch of class.
The existing DB11 coupe is certainly the starting point, or at least its new bonded aluminum structure. The DB11 Volante is also both 57 lbs lighter and five percent stiffer than the DB9 it replaces, and it's headed to the USA early next year. Compared to the DB9 Volante, it's more than 57 pounds lighter and 5-percent stiffer.
The Volante carries over the striking single-piece aluminium bonnet, innovative "Curlicue" aerodynamic feature, and dramatic ultra-slim "light blade" tail lights from the DB11 Coupe.
Mobile puts a cap on fast mobile data
In case you need high-speed data on your T-Mobile number, you would need to go for another $25 on the top of the base plan. For instance, if a user has used 2 GB of LTE data in Canada or Mexico during February, he will have 3G remaining.
The Volante features an eight-layer fabric roof that pops up in 14 seconds and down again in 16. The combination of acoustic and insulation materials takes 14 seconds to lower and 16 to close, and can be used at speeds of up to 31 miles per hour with a 31 miles per hour headwind. The roof can be dropped using the key fob or on the move at up to 31mph. The newest DB11 is powered by a 4.0L V8 turbo engine generating 503 hp. The convertible sports auto 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. There are three powertrain and chassis modes to switch between comfortable cruising and mountain road darting. That's a first for a Volante model.
If you're anxious about the lifespan of a cloth roof, don't worry, because Aston Martin put the DB11 Volante through some extreme weather testing. "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", Aston Martin CEO, Dr Andy Palmer.
