While we are big fans of the Vanquish, we're suckers for a sport convertible. But, the droptop isn't the only thing to like about the new Aston Martin Vanquish Volante($300,000). Its throaty-sounding six-liter V12 engine produces 565 bhp, pushing it from 0-62 mph in just over four seconds, with a top speed of 183 mph. Not only is it powerful, it's also light — thanks to a completely carbon fiber body and aluminum chassis (all without sacrificing structural rigidity). The lightweight, fabric roof folds flat in just 14 seconds, exposing the beautifully-appointed interior, and its passengers, to the sun in no time.
