Unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show , this customized Vanquish Volante Q features an unique Red Ember exterior paint combined with a Gulf Orange-painted front and rear splitters, and gloss-black waist rail finisher. The interior is wrapped in a bronze metallic leather, giving the cabin a sweet look.

Vanquish Volante was unveiled earlier this year at the company’s global HQ in Gaydon, Warwickshire, England as a celebration of the company’s centenary. Featuring design elements already revealed by the Vanquish coupe, the new Volante version adds a lightweight fabric top that takes just 14 seconds to fold.
Under the hood, the model keeps the usual AM11 naturally aspirated 6.0-liter V-12 engine that delivers a total of 565 horsepower at 6,750 rpm and a peak torque of 457 pound-feet at 5,500 rpm.The engine sends all its power to the rear wheels via a Touchtronic 2 six-speed automatic gearbox.
This combination helps the Vanquish Volante to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.1 seconds and up to a top speed of 183 mph.
