The Volante's three-stage powertrain and chassis modes work in harmony with an eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission, electric power steering and limited-slip differential with dynamic torque vectoring.

Pricing for the 2018 DB11 Volante starts at $216,495 in the United States, and it should arrive at dealers next Spring.

Inside the DB11 Volante features a new wood or carbon fibre veneer panels on the seat backs, and creature comforts such as a heated steering wheel to encourage all-season open-air motoring. Enter, then, the 2018 Aston Martin DB11 Volante, dubbed "the ultimate convertible sports GT" and, at first glance at least, only with a little hyperbole.

Perhaps surprisingly, Aston hasn't provided the car's vital performance statistics, such as acceleration or top speed, but it has confirmed that the roof drops flat in just 14 seconds and can go up again in 16 seconds and that it can still be raised or lowered while driving at speeds of up to 31mph, even if driving into a 31mph headwind at the time. To pre-empt any snark about the water resistance of its convertible tops, Aston says it tested the roof mechanism for over 100,000 cycles in "special weather chambers" (which are probably way cooler in our imagination than in reality); apparently British engineering has come a long way. The new hood has undergone extreme real world testing in locations ranging from Death Valley to the Arctic Circle. USA curb weight is a stated 4,134 pounds, up a not-insubstantial 250 pounds or so over the coupe, but it's only 0.1 second slower to 62 miles per hour at 4.1 seconds. That makes the Volante only a tenth slower to 60 than the coupe, and their top speeds are identical. Drivers can operate the top remotely with the key fob or while driving at speeds up to 31 miles per hour.

What's more, the boot's size increased by 20% over the DB9 Volante thanks to the new roof system. "To protect the former you need strength and rigidity, but to preserve the latter you need to keep weight to a minimum".

The new convertible joins the DB11 Coupe which was launched, and is built around the same all-new bonded aluminium structure.

Aston Martin has lifted the lid off its lovely DB11 (last year's 'Design of the Year' victor at the T3 Awards) and, as a result, created the most attractive vehicle we've ever seen.
