The Aston Martin Vanquish S Volante Is A Great Send Off For The Company
Aston Martin has dropped yet another monster machine into the auto market, in terms of both power and aesthetic. The Vanquish S Volante - a drop top counterpart to the Vanquish S coupe - is going to roll out at top speeds once it hits the road. But like every great car, a great price tag comes with this newest release from the British manufacturer.
As Auto Blog notes, the Vanquish S Volante has a 5.9-liter V12 engine, which means the car has no turbochargers. Nevertheless, it can roll out as much as 580 horsepower at 7000 revolutions per minute and a remarkable 465 lb-ft of torque at 5500 RPM. Furthermore, it has a remarkable throttle response, which the publication notes is supported by the ZF 8-speed transmission.
If the specs sound familiar, they are. Aston Martin made little to no changes from the standard Vanquish S in terms of what was under the hood. The company instead focused on a more pleasing aesthetic, which is unmistakeable upon looking at the vehicle. As C|Net points out, all the lines of the vehicle seem to start at the grille and gracefully flows towards the rear of the unit.
The wheel itself is a masterpiece as well, as it sports spokes that seem to simply float within the Vanquish S Volante. The humps on the cowl, which are directly behind the seats, also add a welcome old-school touch to the otherwise modern-looking vehicle. But these tasteful additions are likely to weigh in heavy - both literally and figuratively - although the actual weight of the vehicle has not yet been released.
The Aston Martin Vanquish S Volante retails for about US$315,775, which is US$18,000 more than the fixed-top original. Individuals can also opt to add and spend for additional personalized touches. The vehicle is expected to be the last model of the Vanquish in its present form, as a redesign is likely to soon take place.
