Later that day, Aston Martin will unveil the Vanquish Volante and V12 Vantage S at McCall’s Motorworks Revival.
Vanquish Volante remains congruent with the distinct visual language of the Aston Martin brand, yet it possesses subtleties and nuances that make it a class of its own. Taking a page out of the One-77 supercar, the Vanquish Volante is a visual spectacle that features a folding fabric roof below a tonneau, aerodynamically-tuned decklid that boosts performance, rear light blades that are LED-powered, side strakes that have been lengthened, and waist that has been elegantly styled.
The subtleties and nuances are also displayed in the full height windscreen, not typical of an Aston Martin, and the suit of carbon fibre panels that envelope the 2 + 2 cabin that is adorned in luxury and sophistication: authentic Luxmil leather, full grain and of the highest quality, that comes with optional quilting, satin chrome trim, and metal controls. All these manifest the classy and well-appointed interior and over-all look of the Vanquish Volante.
Aston Martin Vanquish Volante possesses a body frame that is born out of carbon fibre. This ensures balanced and proportional high strength-to-weight ratio and also enhances the car’s flexibility of form.
What this results to is a reduction in mass, a more shapely exterior and a more coherent form. The Aston Martin Vanquish Volante also has a boot that is a full 50% larger than the DBS Volante. From the roof up, the new Aston Martin Vanquish Volante is measured at 279 liters, making it ideal for daily drives and cross-country long drives.
