Product Overview

Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante (chassis code AM7) is a luxury convertible in production from 2019. It is powered by a bi-turbocharged V12 engine that displaced 5.2 liters.
Undoubtedly, the most exciting thing about the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante is the V12 engine, which offers a level of smoothness and instant power response that no other engine configuration can compare. While it is no longer naturally-aspirated, the gain in torque makes the vehicle even more thrilling.
Still, the car is not perfect: compared to the previous DBS, the AM7 has somewhat awkward, incoherent styling elements.
With a 14.0L/100km (16.8mpg) fuel "dis-economy", owners have to be prepared to pay for their "smiles-per-mile".
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante comes with double-wishbone at the front and multi-link at the rear. Combined with RWD, this setup provides one of the best handling characteristics and tuning capabilities.

Sentiment Score 79%
Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
Rear spring and skyhook damper rates are increased to cope with an additional 100kg of mass. There are modes for the suspension, and in their firmest setting the dampers do a very good job of keeping body control close without shattering the ride quality. But at speed that back axle is less poised than with the coupe, and more prone to a shimmy. It's marginal, but it's there.

Pros
  • Powerful V12 engine
  • Impressive handling
  • Excellent ride quality
Cons
  • Not as fast as the coupe
  • Won’t be for everyone

The DBS Superleggera, or ‘superlight’, weighs 1863kg. Inside, the DBS Volante isn't dissimilar to the DB11 Volante – a bit of a worry, given that it costs almost £87,000 more. Driving a car like this on a warm night on empty country roads is really special. And the handling is good, with a pleasing poise and balance to it.

Pros
  • Powerful V12

  • Good handling
Cons
  • Pricey for what you get

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The DBS Superleggera Volante is the new premier super GT convertible in Aston Marin's now two-car open-top line-up. Just like the coupe, the convertible uses the same bonded aluminum platform used on the DB11, and of course the same 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12. The car from Crewe costs a sizeable £72,400 less than the new big Aston, so the DBS is setting out its stall quite confidently.

Pros
  • Powerful V12
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Impressive handling
Cons
  • No hard-top roof
  • No hardtop roof

Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
The DBS Superleggera Volante has a 715-hp twin-turbo V12 engine. The interior is comfortable, but its design isn't quite as lovely as the exterior. It's best enjoyed on a winding road with the wind in your hair; save track days for another time.

Pros
  • Powerful V12 engine
  • Gorgeous looks
  • Superb infotainment
Cons
  • Lackluster interior
  • Cabin isn't the best
