A new model has been announced by Aston Martin this week – the Aston Martin Vanquish Volante. This is an dop top luxury sports car that is a welcome addition to the GT class sitting along side its coupe brother which was launched last autumn. This flag ship model will be the first ever convertible Aston Martin with a carbon body, this obviously makes the car lighter, stiffer and and with the 5.9 litre V12 producing 565bhp the Vanquish Volante is the most powerful Aston Martin convertible ever.
Power is sent to the rear wheels via a six speed touchtronic paddle-shift gearbox and the car can achieve a 0 – 62mph time of just 4.1 seconds. This makes the car 0.2 seconds quicker than the DBS Volante it has replaced but with a top speed of 183mph it cannot topple the DBS which still remains the fast ever production Aston with a top speed of 191mph.
Suspension is controlled by a three stage adaptive damping system and PTC (Positive Torque Control) allowing the driver to select between three different driving modes – Normal, Sport and Track. This gives the car exceptional road-holding ability and coupled with the 20″ alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli tyres and carbon ceramic brakes the car handles even better than its predecessor.
Inside the car is the same as the coupe model, it gets more than twice the boot space of the DBS Volante but the pretty pointless rear seats are still there. The steering wheel is squared off at the top and bottom to give easier viewing of the instrument cluster and better leg clearance, there is a slim line centre console with touch sensitive buttons and luxury Alcantara leather and chrome throughout.? The electronic triple layer hood adds 105kg to the weight of the car and neatly folds away in 14 seconds whilst driving up to speeds of 30mph making it ideal for the UK’s unpredictable weather. The Volante starts off at ?199,995 which is an additional ?6,000 over the coupe model.
