Presenting the Aston Martin DB12 Volante

A seamless fusion of open-top driving luxury, power, and dynamic performance. Elevating the driving experience to new heights, this convertible masterpiece embodies elegance, delivering a class-leading combination of ultra-luxury and sporting dynamics.

Distinguished by its best-in-class roof design, the DB12 Volante features a sleek, low line profile that allows swift and efficient operation. Under the hood, a formidable 680PS/800Nm 4.0 V8 Twin Turbo engine propels the car from 0-60mph in just 3.6 seconds, reaching a top speed of 202mph.

Inside, the DB12 Volante boasts an all-new interior, featuring a bespoke Human-Machine Interface (HMI) and state-of-the-art infotainment system. Scheduled for deliveries starting in Q4 2023, this convertible represents the pinnacle of Aston Martin's commitment to performance and luxury.

Aston Martin's CEO, Amedeo Felisa, expressed, "With the new DB12 Volante, we've redefined the essence of roof-down driving, preserving the purity and exceptional sporting capabilities of the DB12 Coupe. It's a rare and true sporting convertible, challenging preconceptions and appealing to a new generation of Volante enthusiasts."

Developed alongside its Coupe counterpart, the DB12 Volante shares the same groundbreaking design and engineering, underlined by an exceptionally rigid bonded aluminum structure. This structure enhances global torsional stiffness, contributing to the car's unparalleled performance and handling.

The DB12 Volante's 4.0 Twin-Turbo V8 engine, tuned for class-leading power, delivers breathtaking performance—accelerating from 0-60mph in 3.6 seconds and achieving a top speed of 202mph. The ZF 8-speed automatic transmission, intelligent adaptive dampers, and Electric Power Assisted Steering further enhance the driving experience.

Adding to its allure, the DB12 Volante features an electrically-operated 'K-fold' roof, ensuring a class-leading 260 mm stack height. The roof's two-stage folding procedure combines practicality with stunning aesthetics, providing an unmatched open-air driving experience.

Highlighting its exterior elegance, the DB12 Volante features a distinctive design, taking full advantage of the K-Fold roof mechanism. The interior, characterized by high-performance, style, and comfort, introduces wood veneer or carbon fiber panels for an extra layer of visual interest.

The DB12 Volante's next-generation infotainment system, Bowers & Wilkins surround sound, and Aston Martin's customer connectivity app elevate the driving experience. A new level of listening enjoyment is offered by Bowers & Wilkins' audio system, delivering a surround sound experience designed to match the DB12 perfectly.

Aston Martin's Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman, commented, "The new DB12 Volante is a design beacon for us, sculpted with a graceful, muscular exterior and a clean, contemporary interior. Crafted for those who share our joy for adventuring in cars in the open air, the DB12 Volante is truly exhilarating."

For those seeking a personalised touch, Q by Aston Martin offers an ultra-luxury personalisation service, allowing customers to tailor their DB12 Volante according to their unique preferences.

The global debut of the DB12 Volante is set for Monterey Car Week in California, making its first appearance at The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering and later at the Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance at the Aston Martin Club 1913. Production is slated to begin in Q3 2023, with deliveries starting in Q4 2023.
