Aston Martin has revealed its latest generation of supercar – the DB11.
Designed to be a replacement for the DB9, the DB11 features an all-new 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine. Set within a lighter and more ridged body, the DB11 is set to be one of the fastest and most exciting Aston Martins to date.
That V12 produces 600bhp, meaning that the DB11 can hit 62mph in just 3.9 seconds and carry on accelerating to a top speed of 200mph.
Dr Andy Palmer, Aston Martin chief executive officer, said: “We aspire to make the most beautiful cars in the world. DB11 is the absolutely 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.”
With bank activation and stop-start technology integrated into the car’s layout, the DB11 is also set to one of the most efficient Aston Martin cars ever made.
Inside, there’s a 12-inch LCD display, as well as a second centrally mounted eight-inch touch screen that is solely to display infotainment. A 360-degree bird’s eye camera should make parking easier, too.
With four seats and enough room in the boot for two large holdalls, the DB11 is an all-out grand tourer, capable of travelling hundreds of miles in the very highest comfort.
Palmer added: “This is not only the most important car that Aston Martin has launched in recent history, but also in its 103-year existence. The DB11 rightfully places Aston Martin once again as a leading brand in the luxury automotive market”.
