The production of the beloved Aston Martin DB5 stopped in 1965, replaced by the DB6, which used a longer wheelbase and a different chassis. 37 chassis from the DB5 were left over and Aston Martin decided to use them to create a Convertible car, first Convertible Aston Martin to be called a Volante. This 2-door Convertible was powered by the Tadek Marek 4-Liter l6 engine and featured design elements from the DB6, such as split front and rear bumpers and the rear TR4 lights. Thanks to the Touring Superleggera coachwork, the 1965 Aston Martin Volante was very light. With 282 hp at 5,500 rpm and a top speed of 148 mph, the 1965 Aston Martin Volante was also quite an exciting vehicle for the era.
