2018 Aston Martin DB11 Volante unveiled

The 2018 Aston Martin DB11 Volante has been revealed this week, dropping the top off the British GT . Unlike the DB11 coupe, which is offered with a choice of V8 or V12 engines, the Volante will only be available with the AMG-derived twin-turbo V8 under the bonnet in an attempt to keep weight down. The 4.0-litre engine in the Volante makes the same 375kW of power and 675Nm of torque you get in the coupe, put to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
