This is more than just an attractive car: It’s the rarest of things: a convertible that’s at least as good looking as the coupe on which it’s based.

This is more than just an attractive car: It’s the rarest of things: a convertible that’s at least as good looking as the coupe on which it’s based. More astonishing still, its looks aren’t even ruined when the fabric roof is up. So there you have it: The Volante is the best-looking convertible on the market.

Under the aluminum hood is the same 5.9-liter, 456-horsepower V-12 engine used in the coupe, with a choice of the Italian-made Graziano six-speed manual (similar to that used in the Ferrari 575M) or ZF’s smooth 6HB26 six-speed automatic with paddle-shift control that artfully blips the throttle on downshifts. Both transmissions are mounted between the rear wheels to help ensure near-perfect weight distribution.
