Aston Martin launches drop-top DB11 Volante

Ted Welford

What would an Aston Martin grand tourer be if it wasn't available both as a hard-top and a Volante convertible? The latter has been missing from the DB11 line-up – until now. Aston Martin has finally launched the DB11 Volante, and it's every bit as gorgeous as you might have hoped.

Those who were expecting a glorious V12 soundtrack to go along with their soft-top escapades may be disappointed, though, as Aston Martin has chosen to launch the DB11 Volante with only the AMG-sourced V8 engine under the hood.
