2020 DBS Superleggera Volante Is the Fastest Aston Martin Convertible Ever



It’s not everyday we get to see a single car wearing the name of three other iconic vehicles... On Wednesday, British carmaker Aston Martin revealed the DBS Superleggera Volante, the second convertible under the new product plan and the fastest in the company’s history.

Aiming to be the “most beautiful flagship Volante on the market,” the convertible takes all the astonishing attributes of the coupe and wraps them in a very distinguishable body style.

Under the hood of the car sits Aston’s 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 that develops a staggering 715 bhp and 900 Nm of torque. These are numbers high enough to make possible a 3.6 seconds acceleration time and a top speed of 211 mph (340 km/h).

The open-top nature of the DBS Superleggera Volante is handled by means of a retractable roof made of fabric. Eight layers of insulation and acoustically enhancing materials make up the roof to secure both a quiet drive when it’s on and access to the exhilarating sound of the car when retracted.

The operation of the roof is simple and relatively fast. The fabric component can be taken down in 14 seconds, but needs 16 to come back into position. Aston will allow drivers to operate the roof from either inside the car or from a distance of at most two meters using the remote key.

“There is nothing on earth that compares to the roar of an Aston Martin V12, and I believe that the DBS Superleggera Volante provides one of the greatest sensory experiences in the automotive world,” said in a statement Aston Martin’s CEO Andy Palmer.

“Exceptional performance in an irresistible form, DBS Superleggera has justifiably won the hearts and minds of Super GT lovers the world over, and the Volante takes this concept to the next level.”

Deliveries for the DBS Superleggera Volante are scheduled to begin in the third quarter of the year. Prices for the model start at $329,100 in the U.S., GPB 247,500 in the UK and EUR 295,500 in the European Union.
