2015 Aston Martin V12 Vanquish Volante @ Gaswerks Garage

Gaswerks Garage is pleased to present our 2015 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante. Unveiled at the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Aston Martin unveiled a convertible variant of the Vanquish, called Volante. The Volante has a full carbon fiber body, triple-skin lightweight fabric roof, 50% larger boot than its predecessor and the third generation Brembo 398 mm × 36 mm (front) and 360 mm × 32 mm (rear) Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brake discs with six-piston front and four-piston rear brake calipers. The Vanquish Volante is 13% torsionally stiffer than the outgoing DBS Volante. In August 2014, Aston Martin revealed technical modifications to the Vanquish. The changes include a new eight-speed Touchtronic III gearbox and upgraded AM29 V12 engine that has a power output of 568 hp and torque of 465 lb⋅ft. These changes greatly enhance performance, with an acceleration of 0 to 62 mph being achieved in 3.6 seconds, and a top speed of 201 mph. The exterior styling of the Vanquish includes many styling cues such as the elongated side strakes being inspired by the One-77. The boot lid included an integrated rear spoiler designed to look as if it is impossible to make; this was done on the orders of the then Aston Martin Chief Executive, Dr. Ulrich Bez. The car has an exposed carbon fiber side skirt showing its all carbon fiber body. The car features a new interior with details inspired by the one found in the exclusive One-77. The standard interior was upholstered in hand stitched leather and Alcantara and was available in a range of colors. The center console has an revised infotainment system. Like many modern Aston Martin automobiles, the engine is front-mounted with the transmission in the rear for better weight distribution. The Vanquish has 51/49 front/rear weight distribution, and a curb weight of 3,834 lbs. It uses a fully catalyzed stainless steel exhaust system with active bypass valves. It was the first Aston Martin model to be available with launch control. The combined space of cabin and a boot that, at 368 liters, is more than 60% larger than that of the previous generation. The suspension is a lightweight aluminium front sub-frame with hollow castings with independent double wishbones incorporating anti-dive geometry, coil springs, anti-roll bar, and mono-tube adaptive dampers in the front and independent double wishbones with anti-squat and anti-lift geometry, coil springs, anti-roll bar, and mono-tube adaptive dampers in the rear. It has a three-stage adjustable adaptive damping system including normal, sport and track modes. The tires are Pirelli P Zeros, 255/ZR20 in the front and 305/30 ZR20 in the rear.
