This is no mere GT. An icon reborn and reinvented. Smoothed and chiselled into the shape of a Volante and given free rein to cut through continents, erase expectations and completely redefine the open-top category. This is DB12 Volante.

As jaw dropping as it is roof raising. DB12 Volante cruises with a K-fold roof to take the grand to the super with scything style and an aesthetic side profile. Opening and closing in a class-leading time. While giving you the freedom to bare the interior to the world for an open-air theatre of performance.

Duetting with analogue and digital finishes. An interior wrapped with technology. Every corner obsessively hand-stitched in hedonism, swelling every sense with state-of-the-art infotainment and a specially tuned surround sound system.


Propelled by power and purified by performance. DB12 Volante is made piece by piece and inch by inch to seek the speed of missiles. While injecting the cockpit with a turbocharged tourer experience intensity.


Thundering your senses

Blowing the top off performance. The twin-turbo V8 delivers a class-leading 680PS for a top speed of 202mph and comes forged with 800Nm of torque. Letting every ounce of power pour over the road without a roof to stop sound soaring around every edge of the cabin. Putting you at the heart of the ultimate roaring racing experience.


The dynamic duet

An addition to the transmission. For the first time in an Aston Martin GT model, an automatic ZF 8-speed transmission comes twinned with an electronic limited slip rear differential. Working in harmony to thread each wheel with venom and pirouette power into place. Cutting acceleration time across the mid-range. Taking your super tourer to super racing heights.


Taming dynamism

The open-top DB12 Volante comes reinforced with five drive modes. Taking to tarmac with greater grip thanks to ESP. Pulling the road closer to your palms with tighter control. The electronic limited slip rear differential delivers torque intelligently for better handling at any speed. With the non-isolated steering column puts feedback immediately where you can feel it.


A body chiselled in strength

A dynamics masterclass. Cut from aluminium and reinforced with underbody stiffening components for a 7% increase in overall torsional stiffness. Finding support from anti-roll technology and double wishbone suspension, DB12 Volante flattens bumps and floats on any surface. Taking to the road or the track with a body that resists bends and twists, for a drive that bends to your will.


Cutting through racecar speeds

Placing the power of control in your ankle. The choice of carbon ceramic brakes makes their debut in an Aston Martin core GT model. 400mm at the front. 360mm at the rear. Cut and patterned to inject confidence and fight heat in the highest speeds. While reducing unsprung mass by 27kg to quicken the feel of control in your hands.

We have pushed every aspect of this car to be best-in-class. The result is more power and performance than its rivals. Combined with exceptional handling and an exciting soundtrack, it is a car with passion and a truly sporting character. And the start of Aston Martin’s most exciting new era.


An open-top model made to marvel. Sleek, beautiful and scythed with sharpness. Carved to let torque flow through its heart-stealing body. And embellished with a reimagined and redesigned finely folded roof. Taking top-down driving to super levels while adding air to the already debonair.


Folded to perfection

DB12 Volante is crowned by a K-fold roof, opening to the atmosphere in a class-leading 14 seconds. And able to close even when you’re cruising at up to 35mph. All without impacting the aesthetic of the side profile. Folded and formed to a mere 260mm stack height, giving a seamless rear profile and maximising luggage capacity. The roof canopy stands acoustically enhanced and incorporates eight layers of insulation materials for improved interior cabin comfort.


Inherited aggression

Inherited and intended to cool. DB12 Volante bares a redesigned and remoulded front bumper, fender and grille design. A honed focal point with a larger traditional ‘DB’ single-vaned grille for a 56% increase in open area to aid cooling.


Dominating the road with broader shoulders

DB12 Volante has been strengthened with a 6mm front and 22mm rear increase in track width flowing through to the body width. Bulking with broader shoulders for greater road presence and intimidating with every added inch.


A revolution in rubber. DB12 Volante debuts the new Michelin Pilot Sport S 5 tyre. A harmonious creation between Aston Martin and Michelin. Wrapped in a hand spun compound for super grip to reject every drop of rain and inspire smoothness from every turn of tread. And enveloped in the new tyre are the 21-inch alloy wheels. Tailored, cut and threaded to create an assertive presence and an aggressive side profile.


A stronger stance

A constant wordmark of beauty. The side strake has featured on every DB and this super tourer is no different. Stealing glances to the wheels and forming a stronger stance are the side sills. With the front splitters cutting deeper into the ground through lift reduction.


An illuminating drive

DB12 Volante is fronted furiously by AI-generated light structures. Redesigned into a new six-block pattern and modelled to ensure a consistent and homogeneous light output. The Automatic High Beam lacerates with light for more support in the darkest of nights. As illuminating to the category as it is on the road.


An interior lined with digital intelligence, stitched with smarter sound and pulsing with never-seen-before infotainment. DB12 Volante wraps your senses in technology. Lines your cabin with the optimum blend of analogue controls and digital technology. The handcrafted past meets the fine-tuned future.


Interlinked with intelligence

Gripped by driver centricity. DB12 Volante beats with intelligence, holding you close and cupping you in a precise place for a near-perfect hip/heel ratio. With the most minor of movements hanging on only the slightest twitch of your wrist or ankle.


A premier for DB12

A premier screening. DB12 Volante courses with clarity thanks to the highest definition touch screen in any car in the category with full capacitive touch control. Imprinted with enlightened graphics, setting the precedent for every Aston Martin to come.


Not one decibel dampened

Sound seeping from every corner. The world’s first super tourer has the option of a sound system like no other. 15 speakers and 1170 watts wrap you in symphony. DB12 Volante’s Bowers & Wilkins system, with QuantumLogic immersion™ technology is hand tuned to duet alongside every swatch of your interiors. Letting every beat bounce from the materials lining your cabin.


An infotainment debut

Meet the infotainment system made to match the capabilities of the first ever super tourer. Designed, engineered and tailored in house. Built to support wireless Apple CarPlay™ and for the first time, born with voice control. Making satellite navigation, your favourite tracks and any app stand to attention. With your voice alone.


The core of intelligence

Ease in the palm of your hand. We’ve centred DB12 Volante around intelligence in the shape of the connectivity app. Feeding on feedback and putting updates and upgrades in the safety of your phone. With many improvements still to come. Letting the open-top car learn from every drive and evolve with an arsenal of features as soon as they’re available.


The luggage compartment comes with a manually operated load space divider, drawing a line between the luggage and the folded volante roof. Finished with matching carpet and embellished with a leather handle. For manual roof storage. Making space your last concern when you’re flying top down.
