The new Aston Martin Vanquish Volante features a design that represents the latest interpretation of the brand’s visual language. A number of design cues found on the Volante were adopted from the One-77 supercar, like the elongated side strakes, elegant waist as well as its LED rear light blades. The new Volante also features a folding fabric roof placed beneath a tonneau as well as a decklid that’s tuned aerodynamically to deliver optimum performance.
For the first time in an Aston Martin, the windscreen is at full height – the glass now meets the fabric roof – allowing for a clean transition. Carbon fiber panels help wrap the Aston Martin Vanquish Volante's sophisticated and comfortable 2+2 cabin, which is laden with luxurious materials and high-quality materials. These materials include metal controls, full grain Luxmil leather (with optional quilting) as well as satin chrome trim.
Aston Martin decided to employ carbon fiber for the Volante’s body panel, not because this material boasts of high strength-to-weight ratio, but due to its flexibility. This means that the body isn’t only lighter, but it also requires fewer individual body panels and joints.
