It’s time to do bad things to the new Aston Martin DB11 Volante

Attempt your worst crimes against taste by speccing the new V8 drop-top here

“A masterpiece!” “Oh my God, I’m in love.” “Too fussy and overdesigned.” Fair to say that the first pictures of the new Aston Martin DB11 Volante split your opinion when they were revealed last week. Life would be boring if we all liked the same things…

Luckily, you’re never going to see two Aston Martin DB11 Volantes that look the same, because the amount of spec choice that Aston Martin is offering is near endless. There are more combinations of paint, wheel, trim and hide available than there are grains of sand on the Earth. Maybe.

Anyway, while it’s very satisfying to dream up your ideal bi-turbo V8-powered Volante should a winning lottery ticket float your way along the breeze, the art of creating the most tasteless possible combination is a far nobler sport. Be warned: this may impact the rest of your day’s productivity quite seriously. Make sure you’ve fed any nearby children or pets.

A quick TG browse has turned up this sterling effort. Whatever your option of DB11 design merits, it’s fair to say that pulling off orange paintwork, a red roof, gunmetal wheels and a fuchsia-on-royal blue cabin is beyond even Aston Martin’s superpowers of style. Or perhaps you disagree and have ordered three. In which case, hi there! Good to have you as a reader.

The link to the DB11’s configurator, and the portal to a timewasting device the likes of which have not been seen since someone at Nintendo said ‘what if you could play Pokemon on your phone?’ is here. Do your worst. Don’t forget to stop by and tell us your choices once you’re finished…
