The configurator is alive now, with 35 standard color choices and an extra 13 colors available from Q by Aston Martin. It’s all for the sake of enriching customer choices so that the vehicle can be specced out in the best possible way.
After choosing a color, the next thing you can do to the car’s exterior is adding a carbon fiber package to enhance the DBS Superleggera Volante. There are also smoked taillights if you like, and the 21-inch wheels can be configured in five different designs.
As for the fabric soft top, the British car manufacturer offers at least eight different colors. Options for the interior are not less extensive, you have over 20 different finishes to choose from for the interior trim.
Under the hood, the DBS Superleggera Volante is powered by the same engine as its Coupe counterpart, namely a twin-turbo 5.2-liter V12 that produces 715 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque. That output is sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Performance-wise, the convertible can dash from standstill to 62 mph in 3.6 seconds and 100 mph in 6.7 seconds. If pushed continuously, the car will reach a top speed of 211 mph.
In terms of weight, the convertible is 375 pounds heavier than the coupe, with a total dry weight of 4,107 pounds. It also generates less downforce at maximum speed compared to the coupe. The time it takes to open or close the soft top is just 14 seconds.
The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante is scheduled to go on sale in Q3 this year. Starting at $329,100, it will be more expensive than its coupe brother, whose price starts at around $304,995.
