The 2018 Aston Martin DB11 Volante is pure convertible beauty

Colours other than beige available. Hopefully

Fancy one? The DB11 Volante will start at £159,000 ($216,495 USD).

The DB11 Volante's roof is a totally new design with eight-layer fabric that promises excellent noise and weather isolation when it's in place.

This morning, Aston Martin unveiled the new DB11 Volante, luxury convertible that is part of a resurgence of the British luxury carmarker that has been enjoying skyrocketing sales of its DB11 coupe, which it introduced earlier this year.

Wenger Congratulates George Weah as President Elect
If eventually confirmed as victor of the presidential election, George Weah has an onerous task of stepping into Sirleaf's shoes. The Carter Center, which observed elections, commended Liberians "for the calm and peaceful atmosphere" of the vote.

The all-new 8-layer hood is created to insulate the occupants from the extremes of weather and wind noise, taking just 14 seconds to lower and 16 to close. The results? The DB11 Volante passed with flying colors. The V8 is a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 built by Mercedes-AMG that makes 503 hp and 513 lb-ft of torque in the DB11. Torque is 513lb ft and the vehicle produces 255g/km CO2.

The Volante can hit 62mph in just 4.1 seconds and has a top speed of 187mph. It can be operated both from inside the cabin and remotely, from the key fob, and the automaker says that its new folding mechanism makes for a 20-percent larger trunk than the old DB9 Volante this auto replaces.

The roof was tested to extremes during 100,000 lab-based cycles using special weather chambers to simulate 10 years of use in the harshest environments on the planet in the space of a month.

Tom Brady Misses Practice Due To Shoulder Injury
If the Patriots hope to make any kind of serious run this season, they're going to need the 40-year-old healthy down the stretch. The injury kept him out of the victory in Cleveland and it's not clear yet that he'll be ready to roll for New England.

The defining feature of the DB11 Volante is its roof. Top speed is also identical for both models.

"The challenge of creating a convertible auto is retaining structural and dynamic integrity". Thanks to the aforementioned stack height, the DB11 Volante also has 20 percent more trunk room when compared to the DB9 Volante that it's replacing. "To protect the former you need strength and rigidity, but to preserve the latter you need to keep weight to a minimum". "With the DB11 Volante we have maximised the advantages of the DB11's all-new bonded structure to underpin our new Volante with a structure that's 26kg lighter and 5 per cent stiffer than its predecessor". An Aston Martin spokesperson confirmed that the company doesn't now have any plans to offer the DB11 Volante with the 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 available in the coupe.
