In the markets of the United States and Europe sales of the British convertible 2018 Aston Martin DB11 Volante are going to burst out early next year. In the United Kingdom the price will account for 159,900 pounds. German customers should be ready to shell out up to 199,000 euros for the car, while in the United States its price will start from 216495 dollars.

Using a picture in the review, you can visually compare the new convertible 2018 Aston Martin DB11 Volante with the Aston Martin DB11 coupe.  As  you can see, in terms of exterior the cars are just twins, and even with the folded roof (up to 14 seconds are required to have it unfolded and it takes 16 seconds to fold the roof) , the convertible doesn’t lose its attractiveness. By the way, it’s possible to unfold the fabric 8-layer roof on the fly with the help of a button on the dashboard or using a key remotely, but only at a speed not exceeding 50 km/hour.

The new convertible is offered to customers with a choice of three color variants of the roof: wine-colored, silver-black and silver-gray. It is worth noting that, according to the manufacturer, the roof is designed to endure the entire service life of the convertible, as during the tests in the climate chamber it withstood more than 100 000 cycles of folding and unfolding.

With a weight of 1870 kg the new convertible is 110 kg heavier than the coupe of the same platform. It also features all-LED headlamps and taillights, 20-inch wheel disks, an aluminum hood, active Curlicue blinds, three modes of the engine, transmission and suspension operation, a rear limited-slip differential as well as the Dynamic Torque Vectoring system.

In spite of the fact, the salon of the new Aston Martin DB11 Volante is four-seat with a seating formula of 2 + 2, the seats of the second row are so small that they can comfortably accommodate only children, partly because of Isofix mounts in the rear.

The interior of the new car is premium, with up to 9 airbags, a heated steering wheel, an electrically adjustable steering column, not to mention the leather and alcantara seat upholstery. The driver’s and front passenger’s seat backs are trimmed with carbon and natural wood.

There is also an electric drive for adjustments, ventilation and heating of the first-row seats, a digital instrumental panel with a 12-inch full-color TFT LCD screen, an advanced multimedia system with an 8-inch color screen (iPod, iPhone, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, navigation) as well as a 400 W Aston Martin Audio System.

For a fee, you can order the ventilation of the front seats, the tracking system for objects in the blind areas of the rear-view mirrors, the parking assistant. Additionally, there’s a rich choice of color combinations of decoration materials for the personalization of the salon.
