2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante Got an Exceptional Appearance
Aston Martin has revealed its 2014 Vanquish Volante, the first Volante vehicle to ever include fully carbon fiber bodywork.
The Vanquish Volante (roadster) is enhanced by the British brand’s 6.0-liter, V12 motor with 565 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque while its multi-layer lightweight fabric roof can be controlled at speeds up to 30 mph. And despite being the first Volante vehicle to include fully carbon fiber-skinned bodywork, it’s also the most rigid Volante body structure yet in the automaker’s 100-year history.
The drop-top takes only 14 sec to fold and can be done without great efforts on the move thanks to a soft switch. Other vital details of the Vanquish Volante feature its full-height windscreen, another first for Aston Martin. Inside, every bit of elegance you’d expect from an Aston Martin sports vehicle is present in a 2+2 cabin. In comparison to its predecessor, the trunk space is now 50 % bigger, making it a more convenient convertible than ever before.
Cost was also revealed in the U.S. with the 2014 model beginning at $297,995 with the first sales expected to launch early next year.
“Vanquish Volante, similar to the Vanquish coupe before it, features the brand-new technologies employed in the very best ways to construct a sports vehicle which is easy to drive, and to enjoy dynamic performance at the highest level,” informed Aston Martin Head Dr. Ulrich Bez. “This is not simply a super-looking vehicle – this is a great model manufactured for the connoisseur by people dedicated to delivering unique sports vehicle with clearly defined characters.”
