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).
