Aston Martin DB9 Volante

    Built for Aston Martin aficionados with a preference for top-down motoring, the DB9 Volante impresses on every level. Aston Martin’s unmistakable grille, elongated headlights, and voluptuous body sides are complemented by an interior that combines the best of traditional British craftsmanship with a decidedly modern design aesthetic. The result is irresistible in both coupe and convertible forms. The ragtop eschews the folding hardtops now in vogue for a traditional fabric roof that folds neatly under a body-colored tonneau. Bristling with power from its V-12 and blessed with a state-of-the-art bonded-aluminum body structure, the DB9 is more than up to the job. The 5.9-liter engine’s power output has been improved from 430 to 470 horsepower, which also raises the car’s top.

    Pros: That beautifully British V-12 exhaust note is hard to top.
    Cons: Not the DBS.
