Aston Martin DB11 Volante Cabriolet Will Get To in the Spring
The opening spring 2018 ad on the test prototype of the Aston Martin DB11 Volante convertible, seen last winter, was not entirely correct: “opening” happened already now. The British declassified the open variation of their latest model. The motor here is the same as the variation of DB11 V8 shown in June , a four-liter “biturbovo” from AMG (510 hp, 675 N • m), working in conjunction with an eight-speed “automatic”.
The Aston Martin DB11 Volante roof passed 100,000 test cycles in the climate chamber. You can remove it in 14 seconds, and return it back for 16 at a speed of up to 50 km / h in a headwind to 50 km / h. It is possible to start the transformation from the key.

Another plus of the new development is the more compact mechanism of folding, which allows increasing the volume of the trunk by 20% than on the previous models.
Compared with the previous open Aston DB9, the “Aston Martin DB11 Volante” has a 5% harder body, which is even 26 kg lighter. The difference between the mass of the engines V12 5.9 and V8 4.0 should also have a beneficial effect on handling. And according to the thrust of the “eight” AMG even exceeds that “atmospheric” by 55 N • m, yielding to him only seven “horses” in power.
“For many generations of our customers’ Volante always offered something special: a unique combination of elegant style, innate sportiness and responsive handling that put it above other convertibles. The new Aston Martin DB11 Volante perfectly reflects these qualities and promises a double pleasure, which can only be obtained from driving an open-top Aston Martin, “said Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer.
