That Aston Martin DB11 V8 Volante is a boldly styled supercar with a drop-top and an impressive powertrain, making it a natural point of comparison for anyone considering the purchase of a Ferrari. Comparing the Ferrari Portofino M vs. Aston Martin DB11 V8 Volante is natural, but we think it’s clear which one stands above the other — especially given the M’s improvements over the standard Portofino.

Portofino M vs. Aston Martin DB11 Volante: Powertrain and Performance

Anyone who’s comparing supercars is going to be interested in what’s under the hood — and while both vehicles come equipped with twin-turbo V8s, the DB11 V8 Volante is downright sluggish compared to the Portofino M. While the Aston Martin has an engine with slightly higher displacement, the Ferrari gives you more horsepower, more torque, more revs, a higher top speed, and faster acceleration. If performance is important to you, the choice should be obvious.

Portofino M vs. Aston Martin Volante: Interior Differences

Of course, both the Aston Martin DB11 Volante and Ferrari Portofino M are multifaceted: these aren’t just high-performing vehicles, they’re also luxury cars. Whether you’re burning up the track or just taking a drive, you want to be comfortable and you want to be in control. The Portofino M simply gives you more in the way of comfort and convenience features than the Volante. Here are just a few of the ways it does that:

  • Interior Space: Both of these 2+2 grand tourers offer enough seating for four, but the Portofino M offers more cargo space than the DB11 Volante, with the M offering 10.3 cubic feet and the Volante offering 9.5 cubic feet. While a supercar’s home is the track, a grand tourer is meant to be versatile — which would you rather have for your daily errands?
  • Fine-Grained Seating Positioning: If you’re driving a world-class supercar, you want to be positioned perfectly, and the Portofino M gives you that power with 18-way electronically adjustable front seats. The DB11 Volante gives you some control in this regard, but M gives you true fine-tuning capability.
  • Heated and Ventilated Front Seats: The Portofino M gives you the option of front seats that are both heated and ventilated, while the DB11 Volante only gives you the option of heated front seats. Don’t you want to be comfortable in the summer, too?
