Aston Martin drops the top and brings new, innovative elegance in the form of a convertible Super Tourer – the Aston Martin DB12 Volante.
The Aston Martin DB12 Volante is the British marque’s newest addition to its lineup of world-class models and the “world’s first super tourer,” as Aston Martin describes it. In short, this is no mere GT. It’s an icon reborn and reinvented.
Not surprisingly, the media is going crazy over the new open top DB12 super tourer.
“The DB12 version is a refined top-down GT designed with copious portions of luxury and performance in mind,” Robb Report gushed. “What distinguishes this convertible from others in the automaker’s history is that Aston Martin has assiduously engineered it to, first and foremost, be the equal of the coupe—a true driver’s car—and not the “softer” of the pair.”
CarBuzz was equally effusive: “The understated elegance of an Aston Martin convertible is something we’re not likely to tire of anytime soon, and the DB12 Volante is no different.”
Now, let’s go right into all the greatness that makes the DB12 Volante a luxury machine infused with superpowers.
DB12 Coupe: The Media is Losing its Mind over the Aston Martin’s Anniversary Edition DB12
Aston Martin harmoniously combines luxurious comfort with performance in the new super tourer ensuring the drop-top doesn’t suffer any penalties for having the roof lopped off.
The Aston Martin DB12 Volante carrier a twin-turbo V8 engine that unleashes a class-leading 671 horsepower, propelling the vehicle to a top speed of 202mph, while delivering an impressive 800Nm (590 lb⋅ft) of torque.
Prepare for unprecedented speed with power that will get you from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 3.6 seconds. With no roof to hinder its progress, every unit of power cascades onto the road, allowing the exhilarating sound to soar throughout every corner of the cabin.
The powertrain is unchanged from that of the regular DB12 coupe. Sculpted and refined into the form of a Volante, the vehicle is unleashed to traverse continents, shatter preconceptions, and entirely reimagine the realm of open-top automobiles.
“We have pushed every aspect of this car to be best-in-class. The result is more power and performance than its rivals. Combined with exceptional handling and an exciting soundtrack, it is a car with passion and a truly sporting character,” says Aston Martin’s Chief Technical Direction Roberto Fedeli.
The unmatched performance of the Volante DB12 in no way diminishes the allure and sophistication of its design.
This open-top model was made to show off. Expect a designed grille inherited and intended to cool. A meticulously refined centerpiece features an expanded traditional ‘DB’ single-vaned grille, offering a 56% increase in open area to enhance cooling capabilities.
“We love the modern rear end with the thin taillights book-ending the Aston Martin logo, and the dual exhaust outlets are expertly set in a fascia that somehow manages to look elegant and sporty at the same time,” CarBuzz gushes about the Aston Martin DB12 Volante.
Most notable, is the AI-generated light structures. Transformed into a novel six-block pattern and meticulously shaped to guarantee a uniform and harmonious light emission. The Automatic High Beam slices through the darkness with brilliance, providing enhanced assistance during the darkest nights.
