(2012) 2012MY

The Ultimate edition of the V12 Vanquish back in 2007 was never available as a Volante. Not so with the DBS Ultimate as a convertible version was also made available to the same cosmetic spec as the coupe. Whilst available with both Touchtronic 2 and manual transmissions, it is without doubt that the manual DBS Ultimate Volante will be a very rare beast.
