The Aston Martin DB12 Volante Is The Ultimate Open-Top Super Tourer
The Aston Martin DB12 Volante lets you enjoy the best open top performance
Aston Martin is proud to introduce the new DB12 Volante, the open top alternative to the recently introduced DB12 Coupe. The first in the marque’s next generation of sports cars, this open-top model combines spectacular Super Tourer performance and handling with the irresistible sensory thrills of roof-down driving.
Developed along with its coupe cousin, the DB12 Volante boasts the same game-changing design, engineering and technology as latest evolution of Aston Martin’s most distinguished nameplate. With class-leading power and performance and purebred sports car dynamics, the car represents transformative evolution.
Moreover, to support the performance of the car, the focus was on the detailed engineering and specification of all elements of the Volante’s underbody. Key structural elements, such as the rear suspension upper mounting points and lateral connections, boost the DB12 Volante’s torsional stiffness by almost 5 percent.
The Aston Martin DB12 Volante’s performance credentials speak for themselves. Best-in-class potency from its 4.0 Twin-Turbo V8 allows the car formidable performance and a fabulous soundtrack. Tuned by Aston Martin engineers to deliver class-leading 671bhp at and 800Nm of torque.
This exceptional hand-built engine features an increase in output of 34 percent compared to the DB11. Accelerating from 0 to 100km/h in 3.6 seconds and powering on to a top speed of 325km/h, the transmission of the Aston Martin DB12 Volante is paired to a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission as well.
Other highlights include new generation intelligent adaptive dampers, which have a 500 percent increase in bandwidth of force distribution compared to previous generation hardware, giving the Aston Martin DB12 Volante a range of dynamic capability and character far in excess of class rivals.
On top of that, key to the Volante experience is its electrically-operated ‘K-fold’ roof. Named due to the two-stage folding procedure engineered to achieve a class-leading 260mm stack height, this exceptional design combines brilliant packaging solutions with maximised luggage capacity, swift operation and stunning aesthetics.
The interior of the Aston Martin DB12 Volante offers a comfortable and luxurious simple layout with all sorts of ADAS systems and a minimalistic and clean centre console. This can be made even more one of a kind with the brand’s bespoke Q by Aston Martin department to further enhance the experience and looks.
Essentially, if one wants to enjoy the power and style of an Aston Martin DB12 but prefers a more open-top experience and added style, then this open-top super tourer is exactly what you have been waiting for, so go ahead and scoop one up before its too late.
