2009 Geneva: Aston Martin DBS Volante drops its top in 14 secs

Sitting there at the Aston Martin display being overshadowed by the new One-77 is the Aston Martin DBS Volante.

Completing that DBS lineup the Aston Martin DBS Volante features an electric fabric roof that comes down in just 14 seconds and can be operated at speed of up to 30 mph. Of course, that means keeping an easy force on the accelerator which gives the 510-hp 6.0L V12 the ability to push the DBS Volante from 0 to 62 mph in 4.3 seconds. Power is transferred to the wheels by a 6-speed manual or Aston’s new Touchtronic 2 6-speed transmission.

Deliveries for the Aston Martin DBS Volante will begin in the third-quarter of 2009. It will make its U.S. debut at the 2009 New York Auto Show.
