Aston Martin has unveiled the new DB12 Volante, the convertible version of its flagship sports car. The Volante is the latest in a long line of open-top Aston Martins, dating back to the original DB4 Volante in 1961.

The eight-layer fabric roof can be opened or closed in 14 seconds at speeds of up to 31 mph. The car also features a new active aerodynamics system that helps to reduce drag and improve handling.

The car also comes standard with a variety of advanced driver assistance systems, including adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and blind spot monitoring.
