Those who buy a DB11 Volante caliber will be happy to know that Aston Martin engineers have paid great attention to the LCD. That’s not the technology to illuminate the dashboard screens, but a series of tests (LCD is the acronym for Life Cycle Durability) to test the reliability and sturdiness of the headboard, which is the main novelty of the DB11 Volante coupe: English engineer engineers have performed over 100,000 test cycles in the lab and packed 10 years of real use over a month, according to Aston Martin’s statement, it’s to test the capote and make sure that you meet the British manufacturer’s quality standards.

It is no coincidence that the DB11 Volante is the most advanced discovery car built by the parts of Gaydon, according to the manufacturer, it’s be able to match road behavior at the level of the best coupe granturism with the sportiness typical of Aston Martin and the charm of a cabriolet 2 + 2 with canopy top.
