It’s all the time type of a crapshoot whenever you flip a coupe right into a convertible. Typically you get one thing beautiful, and typically you get the Nissan 350Z Roadster. However the brand new Aston Martin DB11‘s design appears laborious to screw up it doesn’t matter what you probably did to it, and by chance its roadster model doesn’t disappoint. Meet the DB11 Volante.
“Volante,” to Aston Martin, is a phrase which means “we reduce the roof off.” We knew the brand new DB11 sports activities grand tourer would get that therapy and right here it’s. And it appears good.
Aston Martin says the DB11 Volante will get the AMG-sourced four.Zero-liter twin-turbo 503 horsepower V8 engine. That powerplant strikes the brand new Aston ‘vert to 62 mph (100 km/h) in simply four.1 seconds with a high pace of 187 mph.
Alas, Top Gear studies it is not going to have the V12 possibility that its coupe brother will get due to the burden penalty concerned. It’s already 240 kilos heavier than the coupe.
However is fewer cylinders and a bit of additional weight a good commerce to drive one thing that appears this good with the wind in your hair? To loads of consumers, positively. I feel I may discover a technique to be nice with it too.
