Aston Martin President and Chief Executive Officer, Dr Andy Palmer said, "For many of our customers, indeed many generations of Aston Martin customer, the Volante has always offered something very special: a unique combination of elegant style, innate sporting ability and sensory engagement that lifts it above other open-top cars".
The eight-layer convertible fabric roof is available in red, dark silver or grey silver. It can be operated remotely from the key, or on the move at speeds of up to 31mph with a 31mph headwind. The steering wheel is heated and the fabric roof - made up of eight insulating layers - has been tested to destruction, first in weather chambers and then in Death Valley and around the Arctic Circle. If you're anxious that the soft top roof won't be as strong as a metal one, Aston Martin went to extreme lengths to test the rigidity of the DB11 Volante's roof mechanism. Torque is 513lb ft and the vehicle produces 255g/km CO2. This setup allows the convertible to sprint from 0-62 miles per hour in 4.1 seconds before topping out at 187 miles per hour, making it only a tenth of a second slower off the line than the V8-powered coupe.

Aston Martin has lifted the lid off its attractive DB11 (last year's 'Design of the Year' victor at the T3 Awards) and, as a result, created the most lovely vehicle we've ever seen. "To protect the former you need strength and rigidity, but to preserve the latter you need to keep weight to a minimum".
