Introduction

What Car? says...

You might recognise the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante’s basic form because, although the famous British brand counts this as a bespoke model, it is in fact heavily based on the DB11. There’s a hard-top (coupe) version that you can read about by clicking here; in this review we’re focusing on the convertible (or Volante in Aston speak).

There are more than just a few tweaks to justify the big price hike over the regular DB11 Volante. For a start, the DBS has a wider stance, which is designed to improve stability and gives greater road presence. The DBS is lighter than the regular DB11 Volante, too. How? Well, instead of the DB11’s aluminium bodywork, it uses mostly lighter carbonfibre cladding to improve everything from its handling to its performance.
