Interestingly, the pictures of this series have been displayed on the home page of their official website and social media.

The DB Volante series are known for the appearance of unique pillars. Seemingly, we cannot find it on this upcoming series. But you must not worry since it doesn’t increase its extravagant look at all. It even looks cool comparing to the coupe version. Meanwhile, almost similar to the old DB9 Volante, Aston Martin DB11 Volante is planned to apply the canvas convertible, not the plat one. How about the interior design? it is not known yet since the pictures don’t show this part anyway. However, it is forecasted to be similar with DB11 couple launched recently.
Another essential thing is the engine. Aston Martin DB11 Volante still applies 5,200 cc V12 twin turbo machine manufactured originally by Aston Martin and AMG. This machine is able to produce around 600 hp as well as 700 Nm torsion. It is combined with automatic transmission for 8 accelerations by ZF. It is predicted to be able to run from 0 to 100 meters completely only in 3.9 seconds with top speed of 322 km per hour. When you think that this engine is too exaggerating, there is another option; 4,000 cc V8 twin turbo manufactured by Mercedes AMG.
Initially, it is stated that Aston Martin DB11 Volante will be released in the spring of 2018. However, it is then postponed in 2019 for some specific reasons. Still a really long time indeed, but if you want it, it is really worth to wait.
