Aston Martin Unveils New DB11

Aston Martin unveiled their next vehicle, the DB11, at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. After the unveiling of the DB10 last year, which was made exclusively for the James Bond film “Spectre,” Aston Martin fans were excited to see a car which they could take to the streets.

The DB11 will feature the first turbocharged engine in the DB line, with a 5.2 liter v12 engine. It is said to achieve 600 horsepower and be able to burst from 0-62 mph in 3.9 seconds.

Aesthetically speaking, the DB11 is a truly beautiful looking vehicle. It’s sleek and sport design is a joy to look at. The light and agile vehicle has earned the label of “most efficient and dynamically gifted” DB model ever, so fans of the brand sure have a lot to look forward to.

Aston Martin has priced the vehicle at $212,000 and is said to have received over one thousand advanced orders from customers who were able to get an early look at the vehicle. As one of the only truly independent luxury car makers left, Aston Martin has high hopes for this car to become a success.

Sneak Peek: Aston Martin DB11

Details are beginning to emerge of one of this Autumn/Winter 2016’s most anticipated “pieces” – the all-new Aston Martin DB11. Scheduled to steal the show in Geneva in the first week of March, the DB11 is the most significant design yet from Aston’s head of studio, Marek Reichman.

Much like how the previous DB9 ushered in a new generation of cars from Aston’s Gaydon, UK, headquarters, the British carmaker says the DB11 will kick off its “Second Century Plan.” An insider told us that Aston is in the final tuning stages, and as such, the engineering prototype pictured here is likely the closest thing we’ve seen to a final production-spec car. While early mules had moldings and panels, we now have a good sense of the DB11’s proportions, and can clearly see the rear-wheel-drive coupe’s character lines. We can also see an aero-lip intake under the grille that appears to be significantly wider than on the DB9. Beyond being aesthetically pleasing, this is a necessary addition for better cooling.

Aston Martin unveiled the DB11s new engine recently, a twin-turbo 5.2-litre V12 based on the old cars normally aspirated six-litre V12 and good, one imagines for at least 600bhp (given the opposition). That will also allow Aston to turn up the boost on future Vanquish models to 700bhp. It’s hard to imagine Aston Martin won’t take the opportunity to update the transmission to the very latest eight-speed ZF. There will be other versions of the DB11 — a turbocharged 4.0-litre developed from the V8 in AMG’s GT — but not immediately.

It has been rumored that the 2017 Aston Martin DB9 successor will arrive in late 2016 with a turbocharged, 4.0-liter V-8 developed by AMG.  Some are now suggesting that the grand tourer will borrow more from Mercedes-Benz. According to one source. the DB11 (name not yet official) will feature 2014 Mercedes S-Class -sourced instrument dials, a rotary controller for the infotainment system, as well as switches for the air conditioning system.

Some believe the pictures of the interior are proof that Aston Martin is getting plenty of electronics from its new partner in Stuttgart.  Until further details surface one way or another, all we know is the DB9’s successor will get both V-8 and V-12 powerplants, with some rumors claiming Gaydon will turbocharge the V-12 as well in order to reduce the brand’s carbon footprint. As previously mentioned, the DB11 will also ride on a new platform and feature new styling, likely based on that of the 2015 Aston Martin DB10 movie car built for the upcoming James Bond “Spectre” film.
