Aston Martin DBS Volante

Aston Martin DBS Volante
The 2010 Aston Martin DBS Volante is a legend, a myth, a beau ideal with its 6.0-liter V-12 engine, 510 hp and 420 pound-feet of torque. And it could be yours — if you have roughly $300,000 to spare.

The Aston Martin DBS Volante is the convertible version of the DBS Coupe, which is itself a high-performance version of the DB9.

The acoustically matted canvas top retracts in a brief 14 seconds, more than quick enough to lower the top at a stoplight.

The interior is beautifully constructed and highly imperfect. The audio and climate controls and LCD display are pathetic for this caliber of sports car, and the dashboard LCD navigation panel is dated and not all that user-friendly.

Looking for an engine that’ll take you from 0 to 62 mph in 4.3 seconds? You’re staring at it.

Aston-Martin | video | Aston-Martin DBSWe first saw Jaeger-LeCoultre's watch for the Aston Martin DBS back in August, but we don't mind showing it again now that we have video because it's just so damn cool. There might be higher-tech products out there, like proximity transponders that will unlock a car just by approaching it, but that doesn't matter. Every kid who grew up with James Bond's gadgets will drool for this watch. Just remember dribble does not look good on your tux. (…)

Aston-Martin | sedan | Spy Shots and Rendering | Aston-Martin RapideUsually it's the automotive press who makes the renderings of future cars, but this time Aston Martin made a rendering for the press.

Minor things have changed such as the three-piece lower grille is now solid, the door mirrors are bigger, and there is a more pronounced crease for the doorline. (…)

Audi Project Kahn | coupe | Audi R8 | car tuningProject Kahn decided the to leave the Audi R8's engine alone in its latest customization. It seems the British folks decided that 414 hp, 4.2-liter V8 was already enough for the car. What they decided was the German lacked style. The tuning house added a new set of 20-inch F1-X carbon-fiber rims as well as a new suspension kit. Also the British tuner can customize the interior in every way the customer may want; just like the Aston Martin Vanquish S. (…)

Aston-Martin Volvo | funnyOne of the benefits that Aston Martin enjoyed while he was under the ownership of Ford was the use of the Blue Oval's parts bin to cut costs. Save for some switchgear and nav systems, only a few items were visible to the customer. At least that's the idea. Edward Legge, general manager of Rio Prestige hire, received a damaged key fob from a rented V8 Vantage that gave him and his team quite a surprise. The person borrowing the luxury GT somehow damaged the rich leather covering the fob, (…)
