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

The Volante carries over the striking single-piece aluminium bonnet, innovative "Curlicue" aerodynamic feature, and dramatic ultra-slim "light blade" tail lights from the DB11 Coupe.

Built on the same aluminum bonded structure, the Volante is created to be lighter and sportier than its somewhat plodding predecessor. Torque is 513lb ft and the auto produces 255g/km CO2.

Keenum Likely to Start at QB vs. Green Bay
The Packers are hopeful to have left offensive tackle David Bakhtiari back for this game for the first time since opening week. What exactly does Rodgers do to get out of the pocket? Too bad, because there's no reason to trust the Packers defense so far.

Unlike the coupe, which launched with a 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12, the Aston Martin DB11 Volante is only available with the recently introduced 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 sourced by Mercedes-AMG. You can also have wood veneer or carbon-fibre finishes for the back of the front seats.

Volante's hood takes just 14 seconds to lower and 16 to close and can be operated remotely from the key, or on the move at speeds of up to 31mph with a 31mph headwind.

The DB11 Volante isn't merely a summer plaything, Aston Martin has fitted a heated steering wheel for colder days of open motoring, and the rear seats even feature Isofix points for fitting child seats. Aston Martin also says that the new soft top design provides 20 percent more trunk space than the outgoing DB9.

Star Wars Battlefront 2: Iden Versio Added as Playable Hero for Multiplayer
The space opera inspired video game " Star Wars Battlefront 2 ", developed by Electronic Arts Dice will be released in November. As a balance goal, we're working towards having the most powerful items in the game only earnable via in-game achievements.

Aston Martin has lifted the lid off its handsome DB11 (last year's 'Design of the Year' victor at the T3 Awards) and, as a result, created the most lovely auto we've ever seen. "The new DB11 Volante captures those qualities perfectly and promises the kind of pleasure and enjoyment that can only come from driving an open-top Aston Martin", Aston Martin CEO, Dr Andy Palmer. "To protect the former you need strength and rigidity, but to preserve the latter you need to keep weight to a minimum".

Max Szwaj, Aston's chief technical officer, added: "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 five per cent stiffer than its predecessor [the DB9 Volante]".

"The result is a truly magnificent auto".
