Aston Martin Drops the Top on Bond’s Ride

AstonMartineventJames Bond drove a DBS, but his wasn’t a convertible. Now, aiming to expand its lineup, Aston Martin is out with a DBS ragtop called the Volante, which made its debut with a splash here last night at Aston Martin of Dallas (pictured). Local Aston honcho Kurt Fegraeus, who runs the brand’s third-largest U.S. dealership, says he’ll get his hands on a dozen of the $285,000 cars this year. To kick things off, he’s offering test drives of the Volante today out of the Beretta Gallery store in Highland Park Village. While DFW Aston sales have been off slightly because of the recession, Fegraeus didn’t sound worried Wednesday night about moving this new version of 007’s favorite car. “We’ll sell two tomorrow,” he said.
