For those of you wishing to take your DBS experience to the next level, Aston Martin offers the Volante, a car we got to preview with Mareck Reichman. So wait for a sunny day, drop the roof, close your eyes and imagine that you too are 007, all for the small price of $286,500.
The DBS Volante is powered by Aston’s 6.0 Liter V12 that is also found in the DBS coupe pumping out 510 HP and 420 lb-ft of torque. This assists the Volante to accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in under 4.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 191 MPH and is available with either a six speed manual or the optional ‘Touchtronic’ gearbox. The drop top DBS is also equipped with high end performance features like carbon ceramic brakes as well as a few weight saving pieces like the carbon composite hood, trunk and front fenders.
Meanwhile the DBS Volante’s cockpit is made up of genuine aluminum dials and nobs, Bang & Olufsen sound system with tweeters that pop up out of the dash and a key made of crystal as well as seven cowhides to finish the luxurious leather interior. Members of the more money then what they know what to do with club can also pick up a $40,000 Jaeger-LeCoultre wristwatch that will open the doors and turn on the lights. If we were a little more juvenile, this would be the part where we make a reference about James Bond, seduction and toplessness. But we’re better than this, after all that’s what the comment box is for.
Full breakdown in the press release after the jump.
