Aston Martin has unveiled the 2014 Vanquish Volante, which is a droptop version of the Vanquish supercar. The Vanquish Volante crucially is powered by the the same new AM11 6.0-liter V12 engine as the coupe and also reaches 0-62 mph sprint in just 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 183 mph.
The Vanquish Volante is the first fully carbon fiber Volante in the Aston Martin’s 100-year history, while also being the stiffest Volante body structure yet created. The Vanquish Volante’s fabric roof takes just 14 seconds to fold.
Announcing the arrival of the Vanquish Volante Aston Martin CEO Dr Ulrich Bez said: “This car is what luxury super GT driving is all about. Great performance, fantastic style and exhilarating Volante motoring in one superb package.
“Aston Martin is celebrating 100 years of excellence in 2013, and the arrival of this new sports car – our ultimate Volante – underlines that our mission to make the next 100 years even more successful is starting perfectly.”
Aston Martin Design Director Marek Reichman explained: “Vanquish Volante is a sports car, of course, but more even than that it is the ultimate Volante. A car which follows a long line of elegant Aston Martin convertibles, this super GT is sculpted to convey sophistication as much as raw power.
The 2014 Vanquish Volante is priced from £199,995 in the UK; €264,995 in Germany; $297,995 in the United States and $323,974 in Dubai.
