Despite being previewed in September by the “lightly-disguised executive car” that are the same vehicle in the images, the drop-top supercar isn’t planned for release before European spring in 2018.
2018 Aston Martin DB11 Redesign
The aluminum-bodied DB11 Volante will be heavier than the coup marginally? Because of the addition of its roof-opening mechanism and chassis strengthening. With a strong body and chassis inherently, only a subtle upsurge in weight is expected, with a spokesman revealing that the Volante is aiming to match the coupé’s 0-62mph time of 3.9sec.
As is the truth with the standard DB11, the interior should be available in about any combination you can think of just, and will be loaded with fine Alcantara and leather throughout. Obviously, there will most likely not be any real change inside, except for the unlimited headroom and the reduction of luggage room. The decreased truck space is a required evil to support the retractable top. You can’t always have your wedding cake and eat it too, right?
Otherwise, expect to see the same overall design, eight-inch infotainment display screen, and commonalities to the typical GT layout. At least the car will still have the race-inspired device cluster and that flat-bottom steering wheel.
2018 Aston Martin DB11 Engine
Under the bonnet is nearly certain to be the same 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 within the coupe, which pushes out a meaty 447kW of 700Nm and electric power of torque. 2018 Aston Martin DB11 and DB11 Volante come with 600 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque on tap and can hit as high as 200 mph! Could be more. Such a great new car.
A written report by Autocar earlier this year stated that Aston is also hoping to match the coupe’s 3.9-second 0-100km/h sprint time, despite the additional weight and reduced rigidity that is included with being truly a convertible.
2018 Aston Martin DB11 Price
That’s where things get interesting really. We’re expecting the DB11 Volante to visit for somewhere within $220,000 and $230,000
