Aston Martin, a name synonymous with luxury and elegance, has proudly introduced the DB12 Volante. This open-top “Super Tourer” offers the engagement and excitement of open-top driving, with a perfect blend of ultra-luxury, power, and sporting dynamics. The DB12 Volante is a marvel of engineering with a best-in-class roof design that showcases sleek, packaging and swift operation.
Its 671-horsepower 4.0 V8 Twin Turbo engine propels this masterpiece from 0-60mph in an astonishing 3.6 seconds, reaching a top speed of 202mph. The combination of bespoke Human-Machine Interface (HMI) and state-of-the-art infotainment create an interior environment that is nothing short of breathtaking. And the best part? You can expect deliveries to begin in Q4 2023.
The DB12 Volante stands as a class-defining car that embodies unmatched elegance and sporting character. It’s the latest addition to Aston Martin’s illustrious lineage of high-performance convertibles that showcase a blend of luxury, open-air thrill, and robust British performance. Advanced technologies and state-of-the-art engineering have reinvigorated timeless qualities of style and craftsmanship, while the driving experience has been sharpened to its finest edge.
According to Aston Martin’s Chief Executive Officer, Amedeo Felisa, the DB12 Volante aims to “challenge preconceptions and find a new generation of Volante customer.” It’s a car that not only preserves the sporting capabilities of the DB12 Coupe but intensifies those feelings through the exhilarating experience of roof-down driving.
Underpinning the DB12 Volante’s focus on performance and handling is its exceptionally rigid bonded aluminum structure. Structural elements and performance additions, like the engine cross brace, boost the DB12 Volante’s global torsional stiffness by nearly 5%. These engineering advancements allow precise steering connection and a class-leading linearity of vehicle response, mitigating the typical compromises made when a car is offered with a convertible roof.
The Volante’s performance credentials are awe-inspiring. The 4.0 Twin-Turbo V8 engine delivers class-leading 671 horsepower at 6000rpm and 590 lb/ft of torque between 2750-6000rpm. Accelerating from 0-60mph in just 3.6 seconds and powering on to a top speed of 202mph, the DB12 Volante’s performance is nothing short of breathtaking.
Central to the DB12 Volante’s allure is its electrically-operated ‘K-fold’ roof. With swift operation, brilliant packaging, and stunning aesthetics, it sets a new standard in the convertible car category.
High performance and style are intrinsic to the DB12 Volante, and so too is exceptional comfort and quality. Whether it’s wood veneer or carbon fiber panels, every interior detail screams luxury. With Aston Martin’s next-generation infotainment system, occupants are immersed in a fully connected state-of-the-art experience.
For audiophiles, Aston Martin has partnered with Bowers & Wilkins to provide an optional 15-speaker, double-amplified 1,170W surround sound system. This system, specially acoustically engineered for the DB12 interior, immerses occupants in their favorite music with unparalleled clarity and power. Whether you are a devoted fan of Aston Martin or a discerning car enthusiast looking for the next level in open-top luxury, the DB12 Volante awaits. In providing the finest of all things, it exemplifies the new age of ultra-luxury and grand touring automotive excellence.
