Aston Martin shows off new DB11 Volante convertible GT vehicle

The power roof action takes 14 seconds to lower and closes in 16 seconds, and the company claims it can be operated at speeds up to 50km/h - even with a 50km/h headwind. Welcome! The new open model DB11 Aston Martin Volante is one of the most attractive convertibles in the world market!

The new Aston Martin DB 11 Volante is powered by a new 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine that delivers 510PS output and is built around the all-new bonded aluminium structure which was first seen in the DB11 Coupe.

In addition to the new V-8, which is a product of Mercedes AMG's engine shop and part of a partnership with the German marque, and the new aluminum structure (a smart switch made in the DB11 Coupe), the Volante is equipped with the 8-speed ZF paddle-shift automatic transmission.

If you're anxious about the lifespan of a cloth roof, don't worry, because Aston Martin put the DB11 Volante through some extreme weather testing. The DB11 Volante's weight distribution is 47 percent to the front and 53 percent at the rear. The new hood design also results in a 20% larger boot capacity than the outgoing DB9 Volante.

Tim Hortons Actually Introduced a Buffalo-Sauce Latte Because Nothing Matters Anymore
This "sweet and spicy" drink is made from espresso, steamed milk and mocha then topped with cream and buffalo seasoning. The rest of the chain's latte flavors are caramel, vanilla, mocha, and of course, pumpkin spice.

Commenting on the launch, Aston Martin President and Chief Executive Officer, Dr Andy Palmer, said that for many of our customers, indeed many generations of Aston Martin customer, the Volante has always offered something very special.

The roof was subjected to more than 100,000 cycles during the Life Cycle Durability (LCD) test, in special weather chambers created to simulate conditions in the world's harshest environments, compressing 10-years of use into a one month test. The eight layered roof protects you from the most extreme weather (it was tested in Death Valley and the Arctic Circle) and wind noise.

Aston Martin says the new vehicle is 26kg lighter than the old DB9 Volante model, as well as five percent stiffer, to provide a better ride and handling experience.

The DB11 Volante will start at $216,495, and Aston says deliveries will begin in the first quarter of 2018. "One that combines greater performance and agility with increased comfort, refinement and interior space for occupants and their luggage".
