The sensory experience of driving the DBS Volante is completed by the aural component: Bang & Olufsen's BeoSound DBS audio system. Developed exclusively for Aston Martin and specifically revised for the DBS Volante, the BeoSound DBS does what most car audio systems do not: it takes into account the fact that it is being utilized in a moving vehicle; more importantly, a sports car.
The system is acoustically and physically matched to the DBS Volante. Loudspeaker grilles are finished with smoothly contoured aluminum that integrates seamlessly with the fluid lines and curves of the lavish cabin. The technology of the system itself has been tuned and adjusted to sense when the roof is up or retracted; it modifies the sound stage to compensate for wind noise and the car's change in acoustics. As perfectly tuned as the sound system is, you may just want to turn it off altogether as you become addicted to the growl of the engine.
The DBS Volante raises the bar and makes it look effortless. Aston Martin, already an unparalleled icon in the luxury automobile industry, is on its way to becoming a titan of legendary proportions. Having just released the Rapide in September of this year, the brand's first true four-door sports car, Aston Martin looks to bring in the new year with their most exciting, true sports car yet, the 2010 DBS Volante.
