First unveiled at the 86th International Geneva Motor Show, the DB11 is powered by a potent new, Aston’s in-house 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine. Built upon a new lighter, stronger, and more space efficient bonded aluminium structure, DB11 is the most powerful, and most dynamically gifted DB model in Aston Martin’s history.
The 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 delivers 608PS (600BHP) of power and 700Nm of torque and comes mated to a 8-speed automatic ZF transmission. The top speed stands at 200mph (322 kph) while 0-62mph (0-100 kph) takes just 3.9sec. Driver can select from dynamic modes – GT, Sport and Sport Plus.
In terms of design, foremost is the front-hinged clamshell bonnet, distinctive LED headlights and accentuated lines of the iconic Aston Martin grille. The roof strakes flow uninterrupted from A-pillar to C-pillar. The clean lines continue at the rear, with a sloping decklid that smoothly blends into boldly sculpted tail-lights to create a new and unmistakable graphic.
Aerodynamics play their part 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 dissipating the high-pressure air through a concealed vent on the bodywork around the wheels. 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.
On the inside, the DB11 combines the very latest technology developed in conjunction with technical partner, Daimler. The DB11 uses a full-colour 12” TFT LCD display. The all-new instrument cluster presents primary vehicle information, while a second, centrally-mounted 8” TFT screen is dedicated to infotainment. Controlled via an intuitive rotary control, with an optional touchpad offering character recognition, multi-touch and gesture support, the new satellite navigation and audio system are claimed to be more effective easy to operate. A newly implemented auto-park assist feature and 360-degree birds-eye view camera helps provide safe maneuvering at slow speeds and is also operated via the car’s infotainment system.
