The 2010 Aston Martin DBS Volante continues to leave James Bond proud although a little wind blown. Yes, the DBS coupe has gone rag top, opening and closing we’re told in as little as 14 seconds.
A hand-built, 517 horsepower, six-litre, V12 engine powers you to 60 in 4.3 seconds, and then on to 191 mph. The automatic six-speed Touchtronic gearbox purrs you through the gears – either a six-speed manual transmission or an optional ZF-sourced six-speed automatic.
Not to skimp on amenities, it includes a Bang & Olufsen surround sound system, iPod connector, and sumptuous leather trim as standard equipment.
Starting at $282,500 for the manual and $286,500 for the automatic, it’s simply narvana on wheels.
