Aston Martin Vanquish Volante Neiman Marcus Edition in Los Angeles

A lot of carmakers are looking forward to the beginning of the 2013 edition of the Los Angeles Auto Show. This year, we will have the chance to see a bespoke example of the new 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante which has been revealed for the first time at the Pebble Beach Automotive Week a few months ago. The new model will join the luxury British sports car presence at the show in combination with dealer partner, Galpin Aston Martin of California. The result is the unique Neiman Marcus Edition Volante which has been handcrafted by the customization part of the company, the Q by Aston Martin.

The specialists used as inspiration the DB6 Volante which featured in the Royal wedding of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Kate Middleton. We had the opportunity to see this special car as part of the prestigious 2013 Neiman Marcus Fantasy Christmas Catalogue. So that you know, the British company has decided to only build 10 examples of the model, which will go on the North American market, so you will need to be really quick in the case you really want, one to be yours. With this special Vanquish Volante, the carmaker wanted to prove everyone the uniqueness of the model and what can the Q by Aston Martin do. Now, the triple-skin lightweight fabric roof can be operated at speeds of up to 30 mph and it only needs 14 seconds to fold. Under the hood it hides a new AM1 6.0-liter V12 engine just like the coupe version and it can reach a top speed of 183 mph. We will have the chance to see it for the first time on the 22nd of November at the LA Auto, when the LA Convention Center opens.
