WHAT WE KNOW SO FAR ABOUT THE 2020 ASTON MARTIN DBS SUPERLEGGERA VOLANTE IN PALM BEACH, FL
Aston Martin is a brand that has been evolving quite a bit lately. While its new features are certainly impressive, there’s an elegant charm surrounding its traditional styling that many drivers can’t seem to let go of. Who can blame them, considering the breathtaking style of the classic models? Fortunately, the new DBS Superleggera Volante embodies the best of both worlds. Here’s what we know so far about the 2020 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante.
FORM AND FUNCTION COMBINED
The new DBS defies the myth that form and function can’t simultaneously exist. Aston Martin’s latest masterpiece boasts strong lines and a rigid style that’s still somehow luxurious and perfectly oriented to benefit vehicle performance. One of the most notable features is the hexagonal grille that evokes beauty and strength in equal measure.
Your eye is first drawn to the muscular appearance, but the DBS’s design is remarkably elegant in terms of functionality. Equipped with the carbon fiber Aeroblade II, this car takes aerodynamics to a new level, especially when it works in tandem with the double diffuser underneath the car. Most cars focus on reducing lift as much as possible, but the DBS works to actively produce a downforce of nearly 400 pounds to solidify handling and stability.
The aerodynamic design enhances the performance made possible by the vehicle’s state-of-the-art engine. Under the hood, you’ll find a twin-turbo 5.2-liter V-12 that produces a massive 715 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. This is coupled with an eight-speed automatic transmission that comes with a manual shifting mode for those looking for a greater degree of control. If you ever take it to the track to test out its top speed of 211 mph, having that extra control can come in handy.
While certainly a powerhouse, the DBS Volante is remarkably relaxing to drive at everyday speeds. In fact, you may not even realize that the engine is turbocharged until you get to higher speeds. That isn’t to say there’s poor acceleration, though. In fact, the car can get to 62 mph in under 3.6 seconds. The ride is just noticeably smooth for a car that packs such a powerful punch.
Inside the DBS Superleggera Volante, you’ll find a luxurious interior that you and all your passengers will enjoy. The interior materials are handcrafted for style, comfort, and convenience. There’s a flat-bottom steering wheel as well, so you can ride in comfort even if you’re testing the vehicle’s limits on the track.
In terms of technology, you’ll find no shortage of it with this ride. There’s an 8-inch infotainment display screen that comes with a satellite navigation system. You don’t have to fumble around spelling out words when navigating the infotainment system, either. Instead, touchpad technology lets you input your choices. Additionally, you can enjoy voice and gesture control.
