Aston Martin debuts DB11 drop top

Colours other than beige available. Hopefully

Not that the British automaker has been keeping it a secret - Aston Martin showed off a prototype of the DB11 Volante over a year ago, with a launch date penned for spring 2018. The new hood has undergone extreme real world testing in locations ranging from Death Valley to the Arctic Circle.

The Aston Martin DB11 Volante is a drop-top with a V8 leaning instead of a V12.LONDON, Oct 13 -Aston Martin has cut the roof off the DB11 and chopped four cylinders off its engine to create the all-new DB11 Volante, a convertible that it claims has the potential to redefine the open-top sports GT vehicle market. Made up of eight layers it takes just 14 seconds to lower and 16 to close and can be operated remotely from the key, or on the move at speeds of up to 31mph with a 31mph headwind.

Just as we hoped, the sleek styling makes the DB11 Volante one of the sexiest convertibles we've laid our eyes on in a long time.

New Brunswick Premier Brian Gallant said in a statement that the company's decision not to move forward is "not good news". Trudeau's "a lack of interest and leadership" on Energy East could undermine confidence in national unity, said Wall.

This is the drop-top version of the DB11, and it's powered by the new 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine producing 375kW. During the Life Cycle Durability (LCD) test, the roof was put through 100,000 cycles in special weather chambers. The 0-62mph sprint takes 4.1 seconds, with the vehicle accelerating on to a top speed of 187mph. A new £159,900 DB11 Volante has been revealed in V8 form. Top speed is 187 miles per hour. "The challenge of creating a convertible auto is retaining structural and dynamic integrity", Aston Martin Chief Technical Officer Max Szwaj explains. Thanks to the aforementioned stack height, the DB11 Volante also has 20 percent more trunk room when compared to the DB9 Volante that it's replacing.

Aston Martin Chief Technical Officer, Max Szwaj, claims that due to the DB11's new bonded structure the new Volante is 26kg lighter and five per cent stiffer than its V12-engined DB9 predecessor. "One that combines greater performance and agility with increased comfort, refinement and interior space for occupants and their luggage".

Deliveries of the Aston Martin DB11 Volante in the US are scheduled to begin during the second quarter of 2018 and will be priced from $220,385 including destination. From what we can see, Aston Martin has another stunner in its growing line-up.
