Unveiled and unroofed: 2024 Aston Martin DB12 Volante convertible sports car revealed, so watch out AMG SL63!

The Aston Martin DB12 Volante follows shortly after the coupe version.

Following the introduction of the Aston Martin DB12 in May, the inevitable Volante drop-top version has made its global debut.

Scheduled for first customer deliveries in late 2023, the Volante convertible version of the DB12 was designed alongside the coupe version, as the company did with the DB11 to avoid compromising its structure and styling.

Heavily borrowing from the platform of the previous-gen Aston Martin DB11, the DB12 Volante uses the same drivetrain as its coupe sibling - a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 borrowed from Mercedes-AMG, making 500kW and 800Nm.

It’s just 0.2 seconds slower to 100km/h than the DB12, clocking a sprint to the ton in 3.7 seconds according to Aston Martin.

While the engine is borrowed from AMG, Aston Martin says it was tuned in-house and features several drive modes and shifting dynamics to work with its eight-speed automatic transmission.

Specific to the Volante, of course, is its electric folding roof, which takes 14 seconds to open and 16 seconds to close, and at speeds up to 50km/h. It can also be operated from outside the car with the key fob.

Inside, a new interior boasts a new multimedia and switch setup, with a 10.25-inch touchscreen and panel below with a combination of climate and drive controls flanking the gear selector.

A Bowers & Wilkins 15-speaker, double amplified 1170-watt surround sound system is also fitted for those who wish to gift those around the car their own choice of music - for better or worse.

The DB12 Volante will make its physical debut later this week at Monterey Car Week in California.
