The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante is a completely wild piece of package and Matt Farah not too long ago had the possibility to place it by way of its paces on some mountain roads close to Malibu.
Because the identify implies, the DBS Superleggera Volante is the convertible model of the DBS Superleggera Coupe. In instances passed by, eradicating the roof of a efficiency automotive like this might smash the way in which it drives. Nonetheless, that’s not the case with the Aston Martin.
Farah says it feels very taught and inflexible, regardless that the roof of the Coupe does kind a structural a part of the automotive, not like some supercars such because the McLaren 720S which use a carbon monocoque to make sure each the Coupe and Spider variants are equally as stiff. Farah provides that the DBS is superbly damped and rides over bumps very effectively.
Then there’s the engine. Just like the Coupe, the DBS Superleggera Volante is powered by a completely brutal twin-turbocharged 5.2-liter V8 that sends its 715 HP to the rear wheels and helps the automotive hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in as little as 3.6 seconds, 0-100 mph (160 km/h) in 6.7 seconds, and attain a 211 mph (340 km/h) high velocity. The engine is so highly effective that it doesn’t deploy full torque till fourth gear.
As for the identify, effectively, it’s not solely correct. Superleggera means ‘tremendous gentle’ in Italian, and whereas that identify was applicable on the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera, it’s not so becoming on the DBS that weighs 4,107 lbs (1,863 kg) – however we guess Aston thought it’d sound cool for what’s a completely attractive, and succesful, supercar.
