The iconic British carmaker introduces the drop-top version of its DB12 performance model, boasting a multi-layered textile roof and a powerful V8 engine.

New Aston Martin Exquisite Convertible Revelation

In a spectacular reveal, Aston Martin has launched the convertible counterpart to its performance-driven DB12 model. Dubbed the “Volante”, this gem in Aston Martin’s crown draws attention with its intricate 8-layer textile roof, promising superior cabin acoustic insulation.

Sophistication Meets Functionality

Replacing the standard hardtop, the Volante’s roof, made from high-quality textile, boasts 8 layers to ensure reduced noise levels when closed. A mere push of a button effortlessly folds the roof in just 14 seconds, even when driving at speeds up to 50 km/h. Remarkably, drivers can activate this feature using the key if they’re within two meters of the vehicle.

Although the Volante comes standard with a black roof, customers can choose between shades of red, blue, and a black-silver combination. For those seeking an extra touch of exclusivity, Aston Martin offers bespoke customization options through its elite ‘Q by Aston Martin’ division.

Engine and Performance: Echoing its Coupe Sibling

Under the hood, the DB12 Volante mirrors the coupe variant, housing a robust 4.0-liter bi-turbo V8 engine, delivering a whopping 680 horsepower and 800 Nm of torque. While the convertible clocks 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, just a tad slower than the coupe, it matches the coupe’s top speed of 325 km/h. Power is channeled to the rear wheels, working in tandem with an 8-speed automatic gearbox. Notably, the Volante is also fitted with an electronic limited-slip differential and a carbon fiber driveshaft.

Cutting-edge Multimedia System

Just like its coupe counterpart, the Volante embraces Aston Martin’s state-of-the-art multimedia system, centered around a 10.25-inch display. Audiophiles will appreciate the integrated 1170-watt Bowers & Wilkins sound system, boasting 15 speaker units.

Prospective buyers can look forward to the DB12 Volante hitting production lines soon, with deliveries projected for the last quarter of 2023.
