Aston Martin DBS Volante

The first DBS hasn’t been delivered to customers yet, and we already have shots of the soft-top variant

The first DBS hasn't been delivered to customers yet, and we already have shots of the soft-top variant, likely to be named the Aston Martin DBS Volante. We snapped the car in northern Sweden on Sunday night.

While the steel roof will be replaced by a canvas top and the layout of the side windows will differ from those of the DBS, all other body components will be identical to the Volante’s coupé brother. To ensure a top-speed beyond 300 km/h, the same 6-litre 12-cylinder engine as in the coupé will power the cabrio, too. 517 bhp and a torque of 570 Nm will accelerate the car from standstill to 100 km/h in just a friction over four seconds – while the price is expected to be just a friction below 300,000 Euros.

BMW M3 GTS vs Mini GP vs Renault Sport Mégane R26.R

You could spend £250,000 on a 700bhp hardcore machine, but is there just as much fun to be had – if not more – with less power and for less outlay?
