THE Geneva show was a huge event for As­ton Martin, which dis­played four new mod­els.

Apart from the Lagonda, As­ton went big with the first ap­pear­ance of its $1 mil­lion su­per­car, the One-77.

At a more af­ford­able level, it un­veiled the DBS Volante, the com­pany’s 16th con­vert­ible.

The Volante is pow­ered by a 6-litre V12 en­gine that gives the car a claimed top speed of 307km/h and a 0-100km/h sprint of 4.3 sec­onds.

The V12 from the Volante, with 310kW and 570Nm, is also fit­ted to the forth­com­ing V12 Van­tage coupe.

The V12 Van­tage was pre­viewed as the RS Con­cept.
