Powered by a new 4.0-litre twin-turbo 503bhp V8, the DB11 Volante boasts an 8-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission, electric power steering and limited-slip differential with dynamic torque vectoring.
On sale in early 2018, the DB11 Volante costs from £159,900, around £15k more than the V8 Coupe. Torque is 513lb ft and the auto produces 255g/km CO2. Its lines are stronger yet more elegant because they're not being visually disrupted by a roof, while very smart touches of craftsmanship such as the wooden veneer that adorns the seat backs and which is plain for all to see each time the fabric roof is down add a subtle touch of class.
The fabric roof comes in a choice of bordeaux red, black silver or grey silver and a new C-shaped "light blade" taillights also complete the car's look.
The DB11 Volante isn't merely a summer plaything, Aston Martin has fitted a heated steering wheel for colder days of open motoring, and the rear seats even feature Isofix points for fitting child seats.
According to Aston Martin's announcement this morning, the roof takes 14 seconds to lower and 16 seconds to close, and can be moved at speeds of up to 31 miles per hour with a 31 mph headwind. The new hood design also results in a 20% larger boot capacity than the outgoing DB9 Volante.

"With the DB11 Volante we have maximized the advantages of the DB11's all-new bonded structure to underpin our new Volante with a structure that's 26 kg (57 pounds) lighter and 5 percent stiffer than its predecessor", stated Max Szwaj, Aston Martin Chief Technical Officer.
