Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante was officially unveiled, with a maximum speed of 340 km/h, making it the fastest convertible car in the history of the English brand.
The roof opens for 14 seconds and closes for 16, which can be operated from inside the car, or by means of the keypad up to 2 meters from the car.
Accompanying the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Coupe, the Volante engine is a 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 with 715 horsepower and 900-nm rotary power, combined with eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.
Despite having a fabric roof instead of what the coupe model has, and the extra power it needs to chassis to compensate for the solid roof, the maximum speed remains the same.
Equally the 3.4 seconds time for a 100 km/h speed remains the same, while the 80-160 km/h speed is reached for 4.2 seconds using the fourth gear.
The aerodynamic performance of the car has not changed at all from the Coupe. At a maximum speed of 340 km/h, Volante produces 170 kg of propulsion.
Inside the cars there is a design similar to that of the Coupe, although buyers can choose 1-6 different variants.
Prices start at €285,382, about € 25,000 more than the Coupe. When it launches, its nearest rival will come in the form of the Bentley Continental GT Convertible, which starts at a price of 201,900 euros.
