Volante’s soul is peerless Grand Tourer, but its heart is pure supercar; the uprated 6.0 Litre V12 engine produces 568 bhp (576 PS) at 6750 rpm and 630 Nm (465 lb ft) at 5500 rpm. It possess almost elemental power, but it is so precise and smoothly delivered, that it never intimidates. ULTIMATE DRIVING DYNAMICS The Volante can reach 197 mph (317 km/h) and cover the benchmark 0-60mph sprint in 3.6 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4 seconds) which is balanced by third generation Brembo Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brakes of tireless power. Vanquish Volante’s sheer breadth of talent is unrivalled, never has a car of such performance been so intuitive and controllable in such a wide range of disciplines. IRRESISTIBLE ENGINEERING The Vanquish Volante may no longer have a fixed Carbon-Fibre roof but thanks to the latest evolution of Aston Martin’s aluminium ‘VH’ architecture and its incredibly strong Carbon-Fibre skin, the Volante remains an outstanding dynamic machine. DEFINITIVE CONTROL Driving through the seamless fully automatic Touchtronic III eight-speed gearbox, the Volante ensures effortless refinement but also offers a fully interactive and instantly responsive change with just the calm click of one of the gearshift paddles. PRECISION AND POISE Our damping System (ADS) offers three modes: Normal, Sport and Track. The Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) is similary versatile, so the Vanquish Volante’s inherent rightness can be tuned to the road or circuit that it is tackling and the skill and appetite of the drive. Whichever mode you choose the car’s near-perfect weight distribution, immense torsional rigidity and progressive, intuitive balance combine to deliver the consummate Super GT driving experience.
