New Aston Martin Vanquish Volante

Stunning Luxury Sports Car

The new Aston Martin Vanquish Volante has been unveiled; this fantastic sports car is the finest of the luxury British car maker’s sports car line up.

Aston Martin CEO Dr Ulrich Bez said “this car is what luxury super GT driving is all about, great performance, fantastic style and exhilarating Volante motoring in one superb package. Aston Martin is celebrating one hundred years of excellence in 2013, and the arrival of this new sports car, our ultimate Volante underlines that our mission to make the next one hundred years even more successful is starting perfectly.”

Under the carbon fibre bonnet the new Vanquish Volante is powered by the latest AM11 naturally aspirated 6.0-litre V12 petrol engine which drives the rear wheels via a Touchtronic 2 six-speed automatic gearbox. This fantastic machine is capable of 0-62mph in a staggering 4.1 seconds going on to a top speed of 183mph. First fully carbon fibre-skinned Volante

The new Vanquish Volante is the first fully carbon fibre-skinned Volante in the brand’s one hundred year history, while also being the stiffest Volante body structure yet created by Aston Martin. The new car’s triple-skin lightweight fabric roof takes just fourteen seconds to fold and the boot measures 279 litres with the roof up or down so plenty of space for luggage even on an open top driving day. The interior of the car is dripping in luxurious materials including full grain Luxmil leather with optional quilting, metal controls and satin chrome trim. Design Director Marek Reichman said “the Vanquish Volante is a sports car, of course, but more even than that it is the ultimate Volante. A car which follows a long line of elegant Aston Martin convertibles, this super GT is sculpted to convey sophistication as much as raw power. The aerodynamically shaped tonneau, the proportions of the folding fabric roof, the luxurious nature of the cabin all these elements have been pored over by the Design team, working with our Engineering colleagues, to ensure we deliver the aesthetic appeal for which Aston Martin is renowned around the world.”

The new Aston Martin Vanquish Volante is an exceptional sports car that has been engineered and crafted to the highest level. Priced from approximately £199,995 the first deliveries for those that can afford such a beautiful car will begin in the UK and Europe later this year.
