The upcoming Aston Martin DBS Superleggera will spawn a convertible version that looks set to become the brand's fastest drop-top yet.
Following the confirmed launch of the coupé in June, the DBS Superleggera Volante, which has just been spotted testing for the first time, will arrive to create a pair of high-performance successors to the current Vanquish and Vanquish Volante.
Power for the DBS Superleggera will come from a significantly enhanced version of the DB11's turbocharged 5.2-litre V12. The current Vanquish S uses a 6.0-litre V12 unit with 595bhp, suggesting the DBS Superleggera's boosted unit could offer in excess of 700bhp.
In keeping with the Superleggera name, which has through history been reserved for only the highest-performance Astons, the DBS Superleggera will move away from the luxury-focused Vanquish and its present rivals, such as the Bentley Continental GT, to compete against proper performance models such as the 789bhp Ferrari 812 Superfast.
