The (richer) man’s F-type: Aston DB11 Volante

For 2020, the ultimate production Aston Martin goes topless, amalgamating three iconic monikers in one flagship model—DBS Superleggera, being the top gun of Aston’s current Super GT range, takes its “super light” ethos and sticks the Volante nameplate to the grand tourer, losing a roof while retaining the handling dynamics that the coupe boasts.

While the DB11 Volante is offered with the much contentious Mercedes V8, The DBS Superleggera Volante preserves the conventional in-house 5.2 litre twin-turbo V12, churning out 715 HP English thoroughbred horses and 664 lb-ft torque, mated to a new 8 speed ZF automatic transmission, propelling the open top GT from 0-62 mph in 3.6 seconds, VMAXing at an eye watering 211 MPH. That’s a whole lot of bugs if you stick your head up above the sharply raked windshield.

Although it may look uncannily like an F-type taking a gap year and backpacking through California, it goes like stink, while irradiating the Bond-car aura every Aston gives off. Be it cruising through Sloane street traffic, or being parked at a casino in Monaco.
