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.

Sharapova reaches Tianjin tennis semis
The Russian won the opening set after a brief struggle, suffering her only break of serve in the second game of the second set. She saw off 71st-ranked Linette in just over 98 minutes to reach only her second quarter-final since her return to action.

Called the DB11 Volante, the new soft-top Aston is powered by a 4.0-litre Mercedes-AMG-sourced V8 engine that develops 503bhp. But overall it's a svelte transition from coupe to convertible with, as expected, lovely attention to detail. Top speed is also identical for both models.

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".

Keenum likely to start for Vikings for Rodgers, Packers
Ideally, he's their change-of-pace back, but once thrust into the lineup against Chicago, he was the difference in that game. By the time Jones releases to his left and turns to look at Rodgers, the quarterback is being pounded to the ground.

The new model is created to be lighter and sportier than its predecessor while still adding interior space and comforts that a well-heeled Aston Martin owner may expect. "One that combines greater performance and agility with increased comfort, refinement and interior space for occupants and their luggage".

The Aston Martin DB11 Volante is priced from £159,900 in the United Kingdom, with first deliveries scheduled to begin during the first quarter of 2018. From what we can see, Aston Martin has another stunner in its growing line-up.
