Do you want a V12-powered grand tourer? Do you also like the sensation of wind blowing in your hair? If so, then Aston Martin may have what you need, or, let's be honest, desire. The British luxury automaker has recently launched their most powerful convertible yet, and it could be the answer to your dream, provided you can pay to play.
After a lengthy teaser campaign and a plethora of teasers, the Gaydon-based marque has revealed the 2020 DBS Superleggera Volante. It's equipped with the same level of performance as its hardtop equivalent, only this one comes with a folding soft-top.
Much like the coupe version, the DBS Volante features a similar exterior design that consists of a huge front grill, eye-catching headlights, and a curvaceuous body. What makes it different from the rest, however, is its retractable fabric roof. It's no ordinary fabric top however as it has eight layers of insulation and has specially-made acoustic tech. When deployed, not only does it reduce the outside noise that penetrates into the cabin, it also improves comfort by lessening Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH).
In addition, operating the roof can be done in just a few seconds. Opening it takes about 14 seconds while closing it will only take 16. And should you want to remotely control the roof, you can do so via a remote key.
An extensive array of customization options are also made available for Aston Martin's latest Volante. From various colors, trim finishes, and carbon fiber décor, Aston Martin wants each and every DBS Superleggera Volante to have a unique look for their customers.
Under the hood is a 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 that generates a whopping 725 PS and a massive 900 Nm of torque. Power is then sent through a beefed-up eight-speed automatic transmission that can handle that huge torque output.
With James Bond likely to drive the all-electric Rapide E for his next mission, we won't be surprised if agent 007 would want to take the more exuberant DBS Superleggera Volante for a spin during his down time.
