Perhaps surprisingly, Aston hasn't provided the car's vital performance statistics, such as acceleration or top speed, but it has confirmed that the roof drops flat in just 14 seconds and can go up again in 16 seconds and that it can still be raised or lowered while driving at speeds of up to 31mph, even if driving into a 31mph headwind at the time. The roof can be dropped using the key fob or on the move at up to 31mph. The eight layered roof protects you from the most extreme weather (it was tested in Death Valley and the Arctic Circle) and wind noise.

Aston Martin has taken the wraps off its new DB11 Volante, a convertible version of the company's new V8-powered grand tourer model.

Vikings are slight underdogs at home vs. Packers
Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers has taken a pounding through the first five weeks of the National Football League season. Aaron Rodgers is used to not having a run game to aid him, and that will likely be the case in this one.


In the Life Cycle Durability (LCD) test, engineers subjected the roof to more than 100,000 cycles in special weather chambers created to simulate conditions in the world's harshest environments, compressing 10-years of use into a one month test. Unlike the coupe, which launched with a 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12, the Aston Martin DB11 Volante is only available with the recently introduced 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 sourced by Mercedes-AMG. The DB11 Volante has been engineered to deliver a much broader envelope of abilities. Torque is 513lb ft and the auto produces 255g/km CO2. And its performance is great too-Aston quotes a 4.1-second 0-62 miles per hour time, and it'll hit 187 miles per hour flat out. The infotainment system uses the same technology as we saw in the DB11 coupe, and there's the familiar lashings of leather, real metal, and other materials that, if you have the budget, Aston Martin's team will let you customized to your heart's content. Top speed is also identical for both models.

Say hello to the latest evolution of Aston Martin's iconic convertible sports GT.
