Default Unveiled: The Aston Martin Vanquish Volante

Aston Martin has revealed a stunner in the form of a drop top version of its Vanquish coupe the Vanquish Volante.

As a convertible version of the V12 grand tourer, the Volante shares its trademark styling with the Vanquish coupe, but adds the drama of a roofless profile. Under the hood though, the likenesses continue.

The technical specs only reiterate this statement. The Volante comes with the same 5.9-liter AM11 V12 engine as its hardtop sibling, delivering 565Hp at 620Nm of torque.

This power is transmitted via a 6-speed automatic with paddle shifters. It does a 0-100 dash in 4.1 seconds and has an estimated top speed of 295Kmph.

The convertible top is fabric and can be raised or lowered at speeds up to 48kmph.

On the inside, the Vanquish and Vanquish Volante set-up holds familiar elements such as the engine start and gear selection buttons.

It takes 14 seconds to fold. This will be the first carbon fibre-built Volante in the brand's 100-year history.

It features a new infotainment system and a significantly more user-friendly design.

The trim now stretches down the whole centre stack and is manufactured from a single piece of material giving a uniform finish.

Priced from $297,995 in the US, sales of the 2014 Vanquish Volante are expected to begin early next year.

Now time for some pictures to drool on...

To me its the most beautiful Aston Martin ever!
There might not be many drastically different design patterns from other AMs but this car just rings that bell like none other!
The front, the rear, the sides! Just beautiful!

Long time I had seen such a beautiful launch!

Thanks for sharing.

I would like to know how old is the engine used in this car? 565HP out of naturally aspirated 6L V12 seems archaic....
The V12 in the current lambo puts a lot more power out doesn't it? If I remember correctly it displaces 6.5?
