According to Aston Martin, the elegant DB11 Volante "sets new standards of performance, innovation, engineering and style to create the definitive open-top Sports GT". Other options include a tracker system, a self-parking feature, blind-spot monitoring, a heated steering wheel and two premium stereos - one by Aston and one by Bang & Olufsen. While no mention has been made of a DB11 V12 Volante, this engine is offered with the coupe, so it's likely to follow in due course.

The fabric roof comes in a choice of bordeaux red, black silver or grey silver and a new C-shaped "light blade" taillights also complete the car's look.

The convertible DB11 variant joins the existing coupe model that launched past year, powered by a new 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with 503 horsepower. You can also have wood veneer or carbon-fibre finishes for the back of the front seats.

The updated roof takes 14 seconds to lower and 16 seconds to close.

As with the DB11 coupe, the Volante's power is sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission.

"The challenge of creating a convertible vehicle is retaining structural and dynamic integrity", said Max Szwaj, Aston Martin Chief Technical Officer.

It said if a married girl was over 15 years of age, her husband could not be charged with any offence. The court, however, refrained from dealing with the issue of marital rape of a woman aged above 18.

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 Aston Martin DB11 Volante is available from £159,900, which is roughly £15,000 more than an equivalent DB11 V8 coupe. With Aston Martin on the trunk lid, you knew the vehicle wasn't going to be cheap. "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. Deliveries will get underway in early 2018.
