Aston Martin has revealed the Vanquish Volante S and it’s a real looker…
If you have a soft spot for drop tops, then Aston Martin’s Vanquish Volante S should push all your buttons and make you feel all fuzzy inside. Drawing inspiration from the impressively styled 441 kW Vanquish S, the Vanquish Volante S boasts more power and additional features that make it that much more special and more attractive.
Aston Martin’s familiar 6.0-litre V12 is found under the hood, but in this application, offers a tantalising 447 kW for UK and European customers, compared to the standard Volante’s 425 kW. For the US and other markets, including the South African market, the engine will be tuned to deliver 432 kW. An 8-speed Touchtronic II transmission will enable the Vanquish Volante S to accelerate from zero to 100 kph in only 3.5 seconds before climaxing at 325 kph. That should do it… Other key features for this model include a quad exhaust system and revised inlet manifolds.
Performance is further aided with an aluminium and carbon fibre body, as well as a new front carbon fibre splitter and rear diffuser for optimum stability at speed. The Vanquish Volante S rides on 20-inch, 10-spoke gloss black alloy wheels as standard with additional wheel designs offered to customers.
According to Aston Martin South Africa, the Vanquish Volante S is available to order and customers can expect delivery in 5 months. Exact pricing is yet to be confirmed, but you can expect pricing between R5.5 - R6 million.
