Just like the coupe model, the convertible will share in its racing pedigree with CNC machined combustion chambers, hollow camshafts, and Sportshift III transaxle. It will also get a bevy of exterior refinements with carbon fiber bits throughout and optional customization from Q by Aston Martin. Video after the jump.
