Aston Martin simply cannot keep up with the enormous demand for the DBS Coupe, with deliveries yet to begin for existing customers. But while the Coupe is selling well, Aston isn’t wasting time congratulating itself. Far from it, the British manufacturer is working on this:
A soft-top variant of the DBS, likely to be named the Aston Martin DBS Volante. Our European based photographers spotted the car in northern Sweden yesterday, and by all accounts, it’s stunning.
Apart from the canvas top and the layout of the side windows, which differ from those of the standard DBS, all other body components will be identical to the Volante’s coupé brother.
The same enormous 6-litre 12-cylinder monster is used to deliver 386 kW and 570 Nm of torque. Although official figures are not confirmed, we expect the Volante to go from 0-100 km/h in a friction over four seconds.
Stay tuned because CarAdvice is driving the DBS (and a few other spectacular cars) late next month.
