Inside Line caught a prototype version of the Aston Martin DBS Volante outside the automaker’s Nürburgring workshop. Aston Martin Vice President and General Manager for North America John Walton announced the "possibility" of the DBS Volante at a recent Aston Martin press event in Dallas.
"We design everything we make with the ability to build a coupe and a roadster," said Walton. "We never do anything as an afterthought." Walton said it would be at least 18 months away for the DBS Volante, "if we went there."
The DBS Volanted will be powered by the same 5.9-liter V12 engine found in the DBS Coupe version. Production version will be released by late 2009.
