The Aston Martin Vanquish, the ultimate grand tourer, the stunning product of 100 years of Aston Martin Power, Beauty & Soul. How to enhance the character and capability of our Super GT? Simple; the same engineering expertise, the same dynamic performance, the same world-leading design – but the thrill of open top driving.
PURITY THROUGH EVOLUTION
2012 saw Vanquish unveiled to acclaim – exceptional technology combined with pure beauty. Our world-leading design team created a car instantly recognisable as Aston Martin but with a bold new look; lithe and honed, elegant and muscular. To create Vanquish Volante our designers worked to refine a convertible body shape. Retaining proportion and balance, ensuring exact aerodynamic performance, creating distinctive convertible styling – the Ultimate Volante.
GREAT DESIGN FROM SIMPLICITY
A roof that’s simple to use and simple to change. We designed Vanquish Volante without complication or clutter. Taking just 14 secs to remove, with just one button push, the lightweight fabric roof fits snugly beneath the tonneau cover with no impact on exterior styling.
What’s more, you don’t have to stop, the Vanquish Volante roof can be folded at up to 30mph
SOPHISTICATION & POWER
“Vanquish Volante is a sports car, but more even than that it is the ultimate Volante. A car which follows a long line of elegant Aston Martin convertibles, this super GT is sculpted to convey sophistication as much as raw power.”
Aston Martin Director of Design – Marek Reichman
EXQUISITE FORM, ADVANCED FUNCTION
Advanced carbon-fibre allowed us to create the now iconic Vanquish rear aero-duct. Optimised for Vanquish Volante this single moulded piece improves downforce and aerodynamic performance. Taking over two days to make, this integral part combines detailed craftsmanship and purity of form. Vanquish Volante also sees the subtle integration of the rear stop lamp, blending it into the surface of the decklid.
DESIGNED FOR PERFORMANCE
Only Aston Martin could create a convertible which maintained the aerodynamic performance of a coupe. Stability at speed. Sharp cornering. Minimised drag. The combination of re-engineered body panels and the advanced rear aero-duct help create lift balance whether the roof is up or down.
PURE, FLOWING LINES
An enhanced, flowing front profile from a new full-height windscreen. A first for Aston Martin, we’ve removed the top body coloured surround and extended the windscreen to meet the fabric roof. Improved visibility and a cleaner profile, Vanquish Volante once again combines design and engineering in one stunning package.
A SUIT OF CARBON
Vanquish is the first Aston Martin Volante to be sculpted entirely from carbon-fibre. The only material we could use to create the exterior form our designers wanted. Lightweight but with a phenomenal strength-to-weight ratio this advanced material allowed our designers to create the muscular yet smooth form befitting our Super GT. Exposed carbon-fibre styling also offers a subtle contrast to paint and brightwork to create a striking visual effect.
MORE LUXURIOUS & MORE PRACTICAL
Vanquish Volante combines, elegance, performance and practicality. One stunning number tells the story – 50% more boot capacity than DBS Volante. With 279ltrs of storage our engineers used the carbon-fibre structure to achieve more rear room. Some convertibles reduce capacity for roof-down driving, not Vanquish, rear boot capacity is always consistent.
