2010 Aston Martin Owners Manual – Few would say the 2010 Aston Martin DBS car needs any assistance in the looks department. However the removal of its rooftop makes it significantly all the more alluring, and it’s one of the most liberal tanning salons on the planet.
Aston Martin has been rather occupied lately, finessing a major V-12 into the Vantage car, preparing for the launch of the exceptionally anticipated Rapide four-entryway, and going all-out to create the $1.7 million, 700-hp One-77 supercar. Also designing a Toyota iQ–based microcar called the Cygnet. (Indeed, it’s real.) Add the new 2010 DBS Volante (Aston-speak for convertible) to the heap.
The Natural Look
Aston planned the 2010 Aston Martin DBS from the beginning in view of outside motoring, and with the top up, the Volante keeps the roadster’s smooth profile for the most part intact. By shunning a popular retractable hardtop, the ragtop downplays the weight gain and jam a great part of the 2010 Aston Martin DBS‘s constrained trunk space. The rooftop can be raised or brought down in 14 seconds at velocities of up to 30 mph. Compared with the fixed-rooftop car, the convertible is about 200 pounds heavier and 25 percent less inflexible.
It’s Fast, It Looks Good, and the Top Goes Down
Although the four-place Volante attempts to accommodate a larger number of passengers than in the two-seat 2010 Aston Martin DBSroadster (rear seats are optional in that car yet uninhabitable because of the inclining rear window), nonexistent legroom and the standard breeze diverter make the rear chairs more decorative storage cubbies than anything else.

Driven in anger, the 2010 Aston Martin DBS Volante is an aural joy and satisfyingly responsive. Indeed, even in sport mode, the ride is firm yet never abusive. Gigantic power is available all through the motor’s range, and working the thick metal shifter through its detents rapidly gets addictive. The immense brakes carry everything to a halt with eye-popping capability. There’s no fade or squealing, simply smooth, strong feedback through the pedal (and a seatbelt attempting to cut your middle in half).
It’s All in the Details
As with the lesser DB9 Volante, sensors can identify an up and coming rollover and signal crisis move circles to send through the 2010 Aston Martin DBS droptop’s tonneau spread. All outside bits—including carbon-fiber accents, hood, bumpers, and trunklid—are shared with the car. Lightweight, 10-talked wheels in place of the standard 20-talked alloys are the main major choice.
At $286,400 to start, the Volante adds in excess of 10 grand to the sticker of the 2010 Aston Martin DBS car, and, obviously, that figure will rapidly bloat in the event that you want yours personalized. However, let’s face it: Something this artful really is extremely valuable.
