Aston Martin is calling the DB11 ""the most significant new Aston Martin since the introduction of the DB9 in 2003," and we could not agree more. The car opens a new chapter in the brand's storied history and sets the stage for the next-generation of the company's prestigious automobiles.
The DB11 not only debuts a new design language, but a new platform that is backed by a new twin-turbo, 5.2L V12. That engine makes the car the most powerful production DB ever with 600-hp, a 0-60 time of 3.9 seconds, and a top speed of 200 mph.
The elegant, flowing lines of the car aren't just for looks either, the company paid a lot of attention to the DB11's aerodynamics. From the front end's curlicue to the rear end's "virtual spoiler", the car slices through air effortlessly without the need for overly aggressive spoilers and body kit enhancements.
On the technology front, Aston Martin showcases its much-talked about partnership with Daimler AG who have assisted with an all-new, high-tech instrument cluster and a centrally-mounted screen that is equipped with a rotary control or optional touchpad for multi-touch and gesture controls. You'll also find a 12-sensor parking system with parking assistance technology, a 360-degree birds-eye view camera, and optional Bang & Olufsen audio.
Look for the DB11 to hit showrooms at the end of 2016.
