Powering by Aston Martin’s 6.0-litre V12 engine with 510bhp (380kW) and 570Nm (420 lb ft) of torque, the Volante is not just a puzzle’s car. Naught to 100km/h comes in 4.3 seconds and top end is 307km/h (191mph). It’s a right performance GT with two rear seats however Aston does concede the rear seats won’t be as drudgery as those of a typical vehicle. This is not a habitual car however, it’s a new DBS Volante.

The two existing gearbox choices are a 6-tempo manual and a routine six-velocity ‘Touchtronic’ that can be engaged via paddles. Keeping the car on the boulevard are 8.5′ x 20 Pirelli P Zero 245/35 front wheels and tyres as well as 11 x 20 Pirelli P Zero 295/30 at the rear. Stopping influence comes from carbon stoneware brakes. Engineers have utilised trial like carbon backbone front wings, gumboot lid and bonnet to moderate import. In the end it weighs 1810kg which is akin to mid-sized German luxury sedans.

Inside passengers get comfortable to skin like the Bang & Olufsen’s BeoSound 13-narrator sound scheme, integrated iPod connector, a USB connector and a Hard Disk Drive (HDD) satellite navigation approach.
