Aston Martin makes some of the most visually appealing cars on the road today.
Their latest offering, the DBS Volante (Volante = Convertible), continue the company’s tradition of elegant styling combined with V12 power.
One wealthy Australian has placed an order for what is the most expensive car in the world, the Aston Martin One-77.
Aston Martin unveiled the hand-built car last weekend in Italy. The $4m supercar is more expensive than the Bugatti Veyron or Ferrari Enzo.
It will be one of only 77 examples built by the British company, which describes it as “perfection”.
Having already launched a bespoke audio system for the DBS in 2008, Aston Martin and Bang & Olufsen went ahead and introduced the BeoSound DB9 which has been designed to complement the luxurious, handcrafted interiors of the DB9.
It was developed exclusively for the car, meaning it is perfectly matched both physically and acoustically, the company said.
Among the highlights of the new audio system are the thirteen speakers positioned in ten locations around the car including two ’submergible’ twin acoustic lens speakers on both sides of the dashboard.
