Aston Martin Vanquish S Volante Is a V12 Drop-top BeastJanuary 27th, 2017
Aston Martin cars are always sexy, and when you fit them with that big V12 engine, you really have my attention. Aston has just unveiled the Vanquish S Volante and it is a convertible version of the coupe, packing a 5.9L V12 under the hood.
That big V12 makes 580 hp and 465 lb-ft. of torque. The transmission is an 8-speed ZF gearbox that I assume has flappy paddle shifters. Aston says the car can reach 62 mph in 3.5 seconds and has a 210 mph top speed, which surely will mess with your hairdo with the top dropped.
The convertible has an aluminum and carbon fiber body and S models get little touches to set them apart from the normal Vanquish cars. The only thing I don’t like about this car is those ugly wheels.
The Vanquish S Volante is expected to land in showrooms this spring.
