The Volante is the fastest convertible Aston Martin. Derivative of Aston Martin’s flagship Super GT, the DBS Superleggera was awarded “Sportscar of the Year” at Motor Awards with The Sun and Sunday Times. This prestigious annual awards ceremony pays tribute to the best of the best in the automotive business.
The award nominees are selected by the editors and writers of The Sunday Times Driving and Driving.co.uk along with their colleagues at Times Luxx magazine and Sun Motors, after whittling down extensive lists of their favourites, but the actual winners are chosen by their readers.
In the Sportscar class, the panel of experts selected “models that were breathtakingly fast around a race track, as well as being great fun to drive at sensible speeds on the public road.” Competition included the McLaren 600LT Spider, the Porsche 911, BMW Z4, Toyota Supra and the Audi R8 V10 Performance but it was the DBS Superleggera Volante that came out on top.
