Aston Martin Vanquish Volante Convertible price

Here we have a new version of the Aston Martin Vanquish Volante. This is a convertible version that will only cont the ones interested in it around $300.000. The model was developed for the ones interested in seeing the sun and not the headliner of the coupe model. Now, some of the new elements bought with the new car refer to the fact that the model is the first fully carbon fiber skinned and also in the same time, is the stiffest convertible models in the 100 years of history of the brand. Here we also have to mention the full height windscreen which is another first for an open top Aston Martin.

The engineers have eliminated the hard top and received instead a triple-skin lightweight fabric roof that needs around 14 seconds to fold under a sculptured tonneau and deck lid. The boot of the new Aston Martin Vanquish Volante is 50 % larger according to the carmaker in comparison to the previous DBS Volante. Continuing with the comparison, the Volante receives a different design for the boot and the integrated spoiler. At the same time, the 2+2 interior has been carried over unchanged sans, which of course refer to the buttons for the roof. The new model weighs only 9 kg or 20 lbs more than the coupe version of the Vanquish reaching 1.845 kg or 4.965 lbs.

The new Aston Martin Vanquish Volante receives power from a 6.0-liter V12 petrol engine capable of generating 565 horsepower and 620 Nm of torque. To transfer the output to the rear wheels, the engineers have offered a Touchtronic 2 6-speed automatic transmission as on the coupe. The price for the Volante has been established at GBP199.995 in the UK, EUR264.995 in Germany and the customers from Dubai will have to pay $323.974. First customers will receive their models before the end of this year.
