Camo-Free Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante Reveals Its Soft Top

In August this year, Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer confirmed the company had begun testing the DBS Superleggera Volante.

We have been waiting to see it ever since and now we can finally show it to you thanks to our spy photographers. Unfortunately, the new convertible saw some rainy weather around the Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit in Germany.

As a result, we can’t see what it looks like without the soft top, but one thing’s for sure: it looks mighty fine with it. The prototype featured no camouflage whatsoever, allowing us to see the soft top in its entirety.

We’re glad to say the fabric roof fits snugly on the bodywork, helping the DBS Superleggera Volante retain the coupe’s dynamic roofline. Granted, it should be a stunner with the roof down.

The rest of the car looks pretty much as you would expect and we can’t spot any other changes compared to the fixed-roof model.

There shouldn’t be any modifications in the engine bay either. The Volante will get the same 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 engine rated at 715 hp (725 PS) and 663 lb-ft (900 Nm) of torque. Mated to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, the powerful engine should help the Volante achieve very similar performance specs to the coupe.

Expect a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint in 3.4 seconds and a slightly lower top speed than the DBS Superleggera‘s 340 km/h (211 mph).

    Volante DB9 was the first Aston I ever fell in love with. Volante Aston has a special place in my heart. DBS Volante is the most perfect Aston ever in my eyes; my soul slipped and fell in love. This Volante is officially my favourite modern Aston at the moment.

    This is sublime. I even like the rims which generally let me down in an Aston. This is a winner. All angles look superb.

    The rear is too “charged”, and the car mustn’t be so superleggera to be outperformed by cheaper cars with 200hp less. So, out of 10:
    – minus 1 for the rear
    – minus 1 for the perfs
    – plus 12 for the rest of the car

    Wow, it’s an amazing 10/10.
