ASTON Martin DB11 “the most important car in the company’s history” is the bold new figurehead of the illustrious ‘DB’ bloodline just unveiled to the world in Geneva.
And with 600bhp from a British designed and built Aston Martin V12 engine, the most powerful production DB ever.
The first product launched under the company’s ‘Second Century’ plan, DB11 is a dynamic sporting GT in the finest Aston Martin tradition after appetites were whetted with the movie-only Spectre DB10.
Priced from £154,900 including a five-year servicing plan, first deliveries are scheduled to begin at the end of 2016.
The DB11 showcases a fresh and distinctive design language, pioneering aerodynamics and is powered by a potent new in-house designed 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine.
Built on a new lighter, stronger, and more space efficient bonded aluminium structure, DB11 is the most powerful, most efficient and most dynamically gifted DB model in Aston Martin’s history. As such, it is the most significant new Aston Martin since the introduction of the DB9 in 2003.
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 aluminium platform, clever aerodynamics, a new characterful 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.”
Heralding a new design era for Aston Martin, DB11 is the latest landmark in a remarkable aesthetic journey; one that gave icons such as the DB2/4, DB5 and, most recently, the DB10 developed specifically for James Bond.
Fresh design signatures include the front-hinging clamshell bonnet, distinctive LED headlights and accentuated lines of the iconic Aston Martin grille.
The profile is equally dramatic, thanks to the roof strakes that flow uninterrupted from windscreen pillar to rear 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.
