A very convincing reason to wait until the turn of the next decade to buy your convertible supercar: the 2020 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante.
The Superleggera Volante in pictures might just elicit a visceral response from viewers. For those fortunate enough to be tooling around in one come summer 2020, the emotional response might become a form of spiritual conviction.
Ragtop or not, this is an English grand tourer in the classic sense, right down to the presence of a growling, twin-turbo V12—the same 5.2L lion that drives the coupe, of course. It’s also almost impossibly beautiful, blending extraordinarily graceful lines and aggressive, road-devouring flourishes. Chop the top off a DBS Superleggera, and the results are still astonishingly compelling.
The top speed of the drop-top is 211 MPH; that should do the trick, allowing the adventurous to open up the throttle when lovely straightaways present themselves. It also matches the coupe, right on the dime. The convertible DBS Superleggera does lose a bit in the 0-60 run, but a very negligible amount.
The DBS Superleggera Volante’s cosmetics are just as compelling as its glorious shape, with quilted leather, sports detailing, and an abundance of carbon fiber, with options to add more as desired.
The convertible DBS Superleggera will run you $25K over the coupe. But it will undoubtedly be the best looking car on any road you find yourself blazing on a warm sunny day.
