Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
Aston Martin are showing this super exclusive Vanquish Volante Neiman Marcus Edition at the 2013 LA Auto Show. Based on the Volante, Aston’s first carbon-fiber bodied convertible, this edition is hand crafted by the company’s bespoke customization arm – Q by Aston Martin.
The show car is seen in a Seychelles Blue color, a bright finished grille and an Atlantic Blue soft top, with blue brake calipers, sterling silver badges and 20-spoke lightweight alloy wheels.
The insides get semi-aniline leather seats, Aurora Blue contrast stitching, quilted door panel inserts, a Walnut trim, “Neiman Marcus” embroidered headrests and a four piece leather luggage set.
The ragtop is a triple-skin lightweight fabric roof which can be operated at speeds of up to 48 km/h and takes just 14 seconds to fold.
Underneath, a 6.0-liter V12 engine producing 565 bhp and 620 Nm of torque, paired to a six-speed Touchtronic II automatic transmission, accelerates this convertible from 0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds and on to a top speed of 294 km/h.
Aston will be making only 10 units of this Volante, with prices starting at USD 344,500 (INR 2.16 crores).
