The Volante has the same new generation AM11 6.0-litre, 48-valve engine as the coupé model. Performance has been affected so little by the addition of a retractable roof that acceleration from 0-62mph is identical at 4.6 seconds, and the top speed at 183mph. Independent double wishbone suspensions at the front and rear with coil springs and anti-roll bars deliver a composed performance and protection for the occupants.
The folding fabric roof offers you the best of all worlds. Lowered, it allows you to enjoy the resonant sound of the V12 engine, whilst the design of the windscreen and cockpit saves you from buffeting and excessive wind noise. A single touch of a button, however, raises the roof to enclose you in a refined and quiet cabin featuring the usual Aston Martin craftsmanship and attention to detail.
Announced in time for the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, the new DB9 Cabon Editions are now available in two special edition colours; AML Carbon Black II and Carbon White.
