The 2018 Aston Martin DB11 Volante is pure convertible beauty

Colours other than beige available. Hopefully

It can be operated at speeds up to 31mph and takes just 14 seconds to open and 16 to close.

The convertible was subjected to more than 100,000 cycles of extreme weather simulating the world's harshest environments, compressing 10-years' worth of use into a one-month test.

Aston Martin has unveiled the lovely 2018 Aston Martin DB11 Volante, which is going to arrive early next year, just in time for the ideal spring weather.

The DB11 Volante's roof is a totally new design with eight-layer fabric that promises excellent noise and weather isolation when it's in place.

USA withdraws from UNESCO
Nikki Haley, the U.N. ambassador, has repeatedly criticized the United Nations for what she called its anti-Israel bias. Michael Worbs, chairman of the UNESCO Executive Board, appreciated the Vietnamese' notable jump in the second round.

Aston Martin president and chief executive officer, Dr Andy Palmer, said: "For many of our customers, indeed many generations of Aston Martin customer, the Volante has always offered something very special: a unique combination of elegant style, innate sporting ability and sensory engagement that lifts it above other open-top cars". If you're in the latter camp - or simply crave the wind-in-your-hair feeling - Aston has unveiled the convertible DB11 Volante. It can be operated both from inside the cabin and remotely, from the key fob, and the automaker says that its new folding mechanism makes for a 20-percent larger trunk than the old DB9 Volante this vehicle replaces. The 0-62mph sprint takes 4.1 seconds, with the vehicle accelerating on to a top speed of 187mph.

A convertible version of Aston's big GT was pretty much a given, and the "Volante" name isn't much of a surprise, either; the automaker has been applying it to its convertible cars since 1965.

The AMG-sourced V8 produces 503bhp and 513lb ft of torque, which means it will do 0-62mph in 4.1sec and a top speed of 187mph. That makes the Volante only a tenth slower to 60 than the coupe, and their top speeds are identical.

What's more, the boot's size increased by 20% over the DB9 Volante thanks to the new roof system. "With the DB11 Volante we have maximised the advantages of the DB11's all-new bonded structure to underpin our new Volante with a structure that's 26kg lighter and 5 per cent stiffer than its predecessor". From what we can see, Aston Martin has another stunner in its growing line-up.
