The Aston Martin DB9 Volante is the latest model to be released from the British car manufacturer Aston Martin. It continues the tradition of the DB series which dates back to the 1950s, and will be the first convertible sold by the company which will feature the patented VH Platform System. These cars will be manufactured at the new facility at Gaydon. The Aston Martin DB9 Coupe was released by the company in 2003.
The Aston Martin DB9 Volante is not just a DB9 Coupe with the roof taken off. It is a entirely new car, and offers a number of impressive features and functions. The car has a very stylish design and it is exactly what you would expect to see from the company. The car houses a hood which is retractable, and is built into the body of the car. The hood can be closed in 17 seconds, and is closed or opened electrically. The interior of the car has a touch of luxury with high quality leather seats.
If the driver should get in an accident, sensors in the car will determine if the car is likely to rollover, and the car will seek to protect the passengers by using rollhoops and A-pillars. These structures are capable of withstanding a force which is twice the weight of the car. The DB9 Volante is powered by a V12 engine which has 48 valves and produces very low emissions. While the performance statistics of the car have not yet been tested, it is expected that the car will be capable of going from 0 to 60mhp in less than 5 seconds.
While the Aston Martin DB9 Volante may not be a supercar, it is capable or reaching a top speed of about 180 miles per hour, which is quite impressive for a convertible. Most of the torque produced by the engine can be as high as 1,500 revolutions per minute. The body of the car is built from high grade aluminum. It is much lighter than the older DB7 model, and this makes it much faster. The car uses a four wheel suspension system which is shaped like a wishbone.
The engine of the DB9 Volante is located in the front of the car, and a number of other features give the car a weight which is perfectly balanced. One of the first things you will notice when looking at the DB9 Volante is the 19 inch alloy wheels. The brakes have a grooved shaped, and this gives them the ultimate efficiency needed to make sure the car performs properly.
