Aston Martin DB11



Aston Martin DB11

Not since the launch of the futuristic British Airways Concord has a machine been the envy of so many in the design world for the use of a single fluid line design that redefines aerodynamics. Like the Concord, the new Aston Martin DB11 commands respect from designers and RESPECT from those that experience the DB11’s V12 power first hand. In Southern California we did just that, and we overtook the terrain with the elusiveness of our Aston-hero, (and alter ego) James Bond.




The DB11 is a massive step for Aston Martin with the introduction of fabulous new technology, new power plant and a new styling direction. The DB11 has a new twin-turbo 5.2-liter V-12 with 600 hp and 516 lb-ft, teamed up with a paddle-shifted eight-speed automatic, add in a very lightweight structure, torque-vectoring system with a stiff chassis and your handling on a curvy road gives you a sensation of a flying figure 8 in a fighter jet.

The DB11 is also now available with a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that is producing 503bhp and 513lb.ft of torque. Its a fabulous complement to the DB11’s existing 5.2-liter twin turbocharged V12 engine.

Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer, Dr Andy Palmer said: “We aspire to make the most beautiful cars in the world. DB11 is the absolute embodiment of what an Aston Martin should be and we have worked tirelessly to ensure that DB11 combines both exceptional design with the latest technology throughout. A brand new bonded aluminum platform, clever aerodynamics, a new twin-turbo V12 and class-leading infotainment systems are just a few aspects which make this the sports car that will proudly spearhead Aston Martin’s second century plan.” When you make your way towards the DB11 the new LED headlights catch your eye as you follow the lines to the statement making Aston Martin grille. The side profile is dramatic to the eye, and the Aston Martin design team created a roof that flows uninterrupted from front to back.
Aston Martin told us during the presentation “that the innovative aerodynamics play their part in this aesthetic revolution with clever management of airflow both over and through the bodywork aiding stability while preserving the DB11’s uncluttered surfaces. Front-end lift is reduced by the gill-like Curlicue which releases high-pressure air from inside the wheel arch via a concealed vent within the redesigned side-strake. Meanwhile, rear-end lift is reduced by the Aston Martin AeroBlade™, a virtual spoiler fed by discreet air intakes located at the base of each C-pillar. Air is ducted through the bodywork, before venting as a jet of air from the aperture in the rear decklid.”

Aston Martin At The Forefront



Inside the cabin the comfort makes this a true road trip GT with an easy to read 8.0-inch display screen in the center of the dashboard. Our test car was filled with the best of the best from Aston Martin including a powered armrest, automatic parking, and a fabulous 1000-watt Bang & Olufsen audio system. The DB11 is beholds the true Aston DNA, in addition the DB11 is showing the world the great evolution of a true GT. The DB11 Aston Martin is beyond what you expected from an Aston and far beyond what you expect from a car. British high design is melding technology with exceptional design and Aston Martin is at the forefront.

Both V8 and V12 customers have the same standard equipment levels and the same extensive choice of color and trim options. They can also elect to enhance the specification of their car via the same Option Packs and Designer Specification packages, plus a suite of Q by Aston Martin – Collection options.




Aston Martin President and CEO, Dr Andy Palmer said of the V8-engined DB11: “The DB11 is the most complete and sophisticated car Aston Martin has ever made. Now, with this new V8 engine option we have broadened its appeal by offering a car that will bring the DB11 to more customers around the world while still blessed with the exceptional performance and memorable character that sets Aston Martin apart from its rivals. Having driven the car during its development phase, it is not just the engine that has changed the character of the car, but also the resulting dynamic changes to create a remarkable GT car with its own distinct personality from the V12.
