Purists could be shocked to discover that this drop-top is propelled forward by a V8 rather than a velvety smooth V12, but the eight-cylinder 4-liter twin-turbocharged block in question comes courtesy of Mercedes-AMG.

The Volante has the coupe's 4-litre twin-turbo V8 under the bonnet, which produces 503bhp and propels the vehicle to 62mph from a standstill in 4.1 seconds.

The new convertible joins the DB11 Coupe which was launched, and is built around the same all-new bonded aluminium structure. Torque is 513lb ft and the vehicle produces 255g/km CO2.

The fabric roof comes in a choice of bordeaux red, black silver or grey silver and a new C-shaped "light blade" taillights also complete the car's look. More usable rear seats, for the first time with ISOFIX points for child seats, more room, more comfort and more refinement, plus the quality and electronics re-invention ushered in by the DB11, are all evident here. Not that the British automaker has been keeping it a secret - Aston Martin showed off a prototype of the DB11 Volante over a year ago, with a launch date penned for spring 2018.

The interior has new features too, including wood or carbon fiber veneer panels on the seat backs. The new hood has undergone extreme real world testing in locations ranging from Death Valley to the Arctic Circle.

Tottenham's Harry Kane named Premier League Player of the Month for September
Mauricio Pochettino says it was "sad" and "very disrespectful" for Pep Guardiola to refer to Tottenham as the "Harry Kane team" . The 24-year-old striker scored six Premier League goals for Spurs last month, plus five more in the Champions League.

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.

With a sticker price of $216,000, United States buyers should expect to see the Volante in showrooms in early to mid 2018.

"The challenge of creating a convertible auto is retaining structural and dynamic integrity", said Max Szwaj, Aston Martin Chief Technical Officer.

Deliveries of the Aston Martin DB11 Volante in the US are scheduled to begin during the second quarter of 2018 and will be priced from $220,385 including destination.

Aston Martin says the new vehicle is 26kg lighter than the old DB9 Volante model, as well as five percent stiffer, to provide a better ride and handling experience.
