#AstonMartin DBS Superleggera Volante: The Fastest Aston Martin Convertible Launched
Aston Martin has taken the covers off its fastest ever convertible. Christened the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante, this drop-top can push the speedometer all the way to 339.57 km/h, thanks to the muscular character borrowed from its sibling. Based on the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera coupe, this convertible is not very different from the coupe, save for the enhanced sensory experience it promises.
Among other things, the convertible also retains its coupe sibling's silhouette; the front features a wide hexagonal grille flanked by a splitter and an air dam on the lower lip of the bumper. The swept-back oval-shaped headlamps with black masking and LED DRLs look quite aggressive. There are sharp creases that start from the grille and run along the length of the bonnet. No extra points for guessing that these have been incorporated to aid the DBS Superleggera Volante's aerodynamics. Other aerodynamic elements the DBS Superleggera Volante include pronounced rear haunches and dual rear diffuser.
At the rear, the LED tail lights joined by a horizontal LED bar works extremely well to make the DBS Superleggera Volante look like a work of art.
The hardtop has been replaced by a convertible roof, which takes 14 seconds to open and 16 seconds to close. This roof can also be operated using the remote key, but only when it is within two metres of the car. Aston Martin says that they have extensively tested the roof mechanism for more than 100,000 cycles, including in places with extreme weather conditions.
