Most automakers go out of their way to outfit new cars. There’s camouflage and body cladding and if a spy photographer does get finish enough to get a snap, engineers usually meet them with certain hand gestures. Aston Martin is not most automakers – in preference to of hiding the new DB11 Volante, it headed to the Arctic Class in an undisguised car with a “DB11 – Toe Spring 2018” sign on each door. Recondite, guys.

The new images of the droptop DB11 should assuage the emotions of critics of the hardtop representation’s odd roofline. The addition of a fabric softtop improves the car’s look immeasurably, giving it a much more old-fashioned profile. Where the sloping, floating roof on the DB11 coupe fights for visual notice with the rear haunches, the convertible top is innocuous, blending in favorably with the wiry line over the rear wheels. We can’t stay to see this car with its roof down, because it intent look stunning.

But as is the case with most convertibles, the roofline is the solely place where changes happen. Underneat the beltline, the Volante shares its fascia and, instead unfortunately its weird side vent, with the hardtop image. And of course, the droptop is also sharing its machine with the coupe. We expect the same 5.2-liter, duplicate-turbocharged V12 and eight-speed automatic when the DB11 Volante debuts.

Normally, this is the stage in a spy photo story where we’d speculate around when and where a new car will debut. But since Aston Martin helpfully scrawled involvement of that info on the side of the car, it’s not really compelling. The Aston Martin DB11 Volante will premiere in spring of 2018, a period that lines up neatly with the Geneva Motor Disclose.
