Aston Martin DBS Volante: The head-turner that’ll leave you white with car fever

by Dan Neil
LA TIMES

It’s a vehicle that could be perfection itself with its 6.0-liter V-12 engine, 510 hp and 420 pound-feet of torque. Too bad the audio and climate controls are pathetic for this caliber of sports car.

I understand the Aston Martin DBS Volante is not for everybody. Not everyone will care for a $300,000, 12-cylinder, open-top super car that looks like love feels and sounds like whiskey tastes.

But if you are one of these people — these nugatory finger-waggers, these buzz-killing harpies of righteous socialism — please, sit next to someone else at dinner. I will stick a fork in your eye.
