ASTON MARTIN DBS Volante
Generations Timeline, Specs and Pictures
Aston Martin promoted its new DBS model through James Bond’s 2006 Casino Royale and 2008 Quantum of Solace.
The new car was based on the DBR9 model - VH platform - but featured a lower and wider bodywork. It shared its wheelbase and roofline with the DB9 car and featured redesigned front bumper - with wider air scoops - and an integrated rear lip spoiler. The new DBS Volante is essentially the convertible version of the coupe, delivering almost the exact performance but with the added twist of open-top motoring. The DBS V12 was pulled in 2012, replaced by the new Vanquish (Project AM310), which became Aston’s new flagship model.
