British luxury carmaker Aston Martin has revealed the Vanquish S Volante, the drop-top version of the stunning Vanquish S that debuted in November 2016.

Powering the new drop top Vanquish S Volante is Aston Martin's sonorous, naturally aspirated 5.9-litre V12 in what could be its final hurrah.

The V12 engine produces 595bhp and 630Nm of torque which is sent to the rear wheels via an 8-speed automatic gearbox.

The Vanquish S Volante also gets a revised suspension setup for those long grand tours that the car was bred for.

Aston Martin has not revealed the 0-100km/h sprint time nor the top speed of the new Vanquish S Volante. However, expect it to be slightly slower than the coupe's 3.5-second sprint time and 323km/h top speed thanks to the extra weight gained due to the strengthening needed after the top was chopped off.

While chopping the roof off most cars spoils their looks, the drop-top Aston Martin Vanquish S Volante looks even more stunning than its coupe sibling.

The Vanquish S Volante's sculpted bonnet and bulging wheel arches ensure your eyes are glued to the Aston at all times which also features bewitching 20-inch alloy wheels and a rather angry looking diffuser and quad exhaust setup at the rear.

The new Vanquish S Volante marks the end of Aston Martin's current Vanquish lineup. The new lineup of Vanquish cars are expected to start rolling out in 2018 and will be powered by Aston's new 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine that powers the DB11.
